Renee, maybe you already realize this, but in case you don't...Having a slip up doesn't take away any of what you've done the past couple months. The fact that you were trying to talk to someone about it is really good. That takes alot of strength, even if you did end up cutting. Don't be too hard on yourself over this. You made a mistake sweetie, that's all. EVERYONE goes against their best intentions sometimes. If you haven't forgiven yourself, that'd be a good thing to do. Also, since you said you didn't even realize what you were doing until you'd done it, try putting more steps in between you and the things you generally hurt yourself with. Put your razor blades and whatever else you usually use in locked box with either a seperate key or a combination lock. That way you won't just be able to pick the object up abscent mindedly. You'll have the time you spend putting in the combination or grabbing the key to ground yourself and realize what you're doing in enough time to stop yourself. Two months is awesome! Just lock up your stuff, make sure to steralize your wrist, and just keep doing what you've been doing these past couple months.

Hey there,

Don't fret yourself too much, okay? We all make mistakes and quitting sh is a hard thing to do. It's going to take some time and even a few tries before you can fully say that you used to sh. You still managed to make it through the past few months which is a big achievement. So don't give up, keep going, you can do it


And here you are living, despite it all.
