Cut after a while - July 3rd 2011, 12:30 AM

Hey everyone, so basically I had be SH-free for about six months and then suddenly I felt the urge to cut. I've cut myself twice in the past week. Just need some support right now because I am retrogressing. I don't have therapy until Tuesday. I plan on bringing it up then.

hey im in a similar situation ive been SH free for 5 months and ive been having extreme urges to cut as well. my best advice is to keep your mind busy, keep your hands busy doing something else to relieve all the tension.
feel free to PM me if you need to

sometimes life will hand you lemons
when it does
make grape juice and
leave the whole world wondering

how you did it

PM me I'm here to help

Hey! Stay strong! I am at the one year and 5 month mark, but believe me, I had some STRONG urges. Distract yourself and love yourself, that's my best advice. Its also good that you plan to bring it up at therapy!!! Stay strong!

Love everyone

Hey friends,
you're doing excellent work keeping it up so long! i am so proud of you all. just don't let these thoughts take you away from the path of recovery. you've done it for about 5-6 months, that means that you can do it all the way long. just keep your spirits high, and keep your mind as well hands busy somewhere else, keep focused on something else and never let your mind be idle. you can do it!! i know you can.
Proud of you all once again

Come back to me now, don't leave me all alone,
You just don't know how much I need you.
Baby, I'd give up anything just to have you,
My existence is just so vague without you...

So, I fold my hands in an open prayer,
God! Just put an end to my despair.
This is my song in the rain,
Come back to me now and put an end to my pain...
