Hey Ally.

Not self harming since December is an amazing achievement. You did really well to come this fair with out self harming. Like I say to others, recovery isn't all about just stopping self harming. During recovery the chances are pretty high that you are going to have slips ups. And that doesn't matter. What does matter is you picking yourself back up and kind of re-starting over. Use this to make you that little bit stronger. And if you keep on trying you will get there!

If your cuts are still bleeding and you think they are to deep and might need stitches etc, then I suggest you seek medical help. If they carry on bleeding for a while I still suggest you seek medical help just in case and at least they can be cleaned and bandaged to prevent infection. If they are bleeding but you don't feel you need medical attention try getting a clean towel and put pressure against it. But do make you you seek help if its needed. Also it'd be good to buy some bandages yourself if you can just to keep it clean.

Remember you're stronger than self harm and you don't deserve to be hurt anymore than you already hurt. Keep you chin up.

First off I would like to say good job on not cutting for so long. It can be a hard thing to do once you get used to cutting to stop but it is absolutely normal to have urges to do it again and sometimes we slip up. Don't beat yourself up over this. Perhaps it would be a good idea if you sit down and talk to someone about it, a close friend or family member that would be able to support you and help you to stop.

Another thing I would suggest is when you have the urge to cut, try doing something you like doing. You could also try one of many alternatives which can be found here; http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/

- Good luck and I hope this helps!
