well SIAD is coming up - February 19th 2011, 11:51 PM

Self Injury Awareness Day is coming up March 1st. What are you all doing for it? I belong to a team of about 10-15 at my college. We agreed to as a group put posters up for it and it is a Christian college so allow people to asks for prayer if they would like. What are you doing?

I feel like I should post in orange in this thread. I think I'm going to lead school prayer that morning, if my campus minister is okay with it, and wear orange most of the day.

I usually wear Skins under my school skirt, just in case my scars show... but I think maybe on SIAD I might not. If my scars show, so be it.
I'll also probably wear something orange: ribbons (like I did last year), or hair ties or something.

I'm gonna do prayer in my school in the morning and speak to the students in grade 10 on behalf of TWLOHA (which I work for). Then I'm going to head off to Las Vegas that morning and speak in a Christian High School there on this issue. It should be a VERY crazy day!!!

I've actually got another Psychiatric Evaluation that morning. I'm thinking I'll talk to my boyfriend and we can make bracelets together, or I'll just make us each one.

Although, what are the colours like specifically for a recovering self-harmer, and someone who has never self-harmed? In fact, maybe posting exactly how each colour works could help users on here get involved easier.

I know Orange and white is for recovered.
Orange with 1 white bead is for people trying to recover.
Orange is for current self harmer's.
All white is for people who sympathise with self harmer's.

Thanks Rachel, because I kind of want to get my boyfriend to wear a bracelet, since he knows a bit of what I've been going through, and I'm sure I could get him to support the cause.

Actually, I think I'm just going to bite the bullet on this one and do something more 'out there'. I'm going to wear orange hair ties and ribbons, and to everyone who asks what they're for, I'll hand them a sheet explaining why I'm wearing orange, and what they can do to find out more.
Wish me luck. I've never done something this bold before!

I missed it!

..and I missed it last year too. I was looking forward to representing the awareness of it all.

Oh the frustration of being so out of touch..

I ended up forgetting my bracelet at home, since I had to rush out for my psych appointment. Then I didn't really go anywhere else, so it never occurred to me. However, my boyfriend and I did make bracelets, and hopefully we'll be able to find them, and remember to wear them, next year.

I almost forgot about it, too. I made a status on facebook at around 10pm. I wish I could have done more. I would have if I remembered.
