Question how often do you sh? - March 5th 2011, 05:11 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I used to a couple times a week but I've been sh free since Octoberish

I feel this may be triggering to some, so it should be labeled as such.

Sometimes it's nearly every day, but it hasn't been like that for a while. Now it's once a month or less because I'm too tired to have to clean up afterwards.

It's usually two - three times a month. But lately it's been about two-three times a week. Bad days I suppose.

Used to do it every few days.. Now it's only the occasional mini slip up every few months.

Lately several times a week. Before I could go months without it, but my illness is getting out of control again.

Right now I am doing it about every week. I've had periods where it'll be daily, and on multiple occasions throughout a day. I've also been at the opposite end of the spectrum, going for several weeks without.

For me it varies. Sometimes it's a few times a month and sometimes it's only once or twice a month. It just depends on how I'm feeling.

Used to be once or twice a week, but now (besides one small slip up I don't like counting) I have been without cutting a year.

It varies... sometimes everyday, sometimes every other, then I can go for a few weeks, but then I get back to more reguarly... it depends on my mood and what's going on in my mind... I cut last night and then this morning and then again before I came on here... but it really does change...

You learn at a certain pace. Then that pace goes away. Then

you try and try to do everything you can. Then it gets harder.

Then you give up. Then its all over.

Whenever the need to do so arrizes. It could be everyday or once a month. Usually i'll go for weeks a time without, and then something majorly triggering happens and I do it everyday for a month and it goes back to not too often. But often enough to keep me sane.
