It says coping mechanism. It helps you to deal with the stuff in your head.

It does indeed help me cope. Had a much better time last night after using it to clear my head.
But why couldnít I choose a way that doesnít involve self injury? I know it is a stupid way so why wonít  I stop? I feel I should be able to use the strategies that have been suggested but when it comes to having urges I seem to give in quickly. Itís like I know I will at some point once they start. Already planning for later to stay awake for last of the theatre visits.

Think I am in a negative circle of self criticism at the moment. Probably something recognisable to many. Going to try and take a step out of it and look for some positive points.
We are away from home and it isnít raining....

Responding to the much appreciated comments and reading back the responses helped me to recognise how my head was going round and round the negative and how increasingly self critical I was getting.

Managed to keep busy yesterday and tried really hard to keep an eye on what I was doing rather than the demons fighting in my head. Still cut and it got me through another play without falling asleep, but I really enjoyed the play, and am trying not to judge myself too harshly.

Still donít know how to get myself to stop but if my GP doesnít judge, I shouldnít.....

Baby steps.

It is baby steps. Talking on here is a help. Have you looked at the resources on the main site

Talking on here definitely helps. I do feel really alone with this. The only times I talk to about cutting is with my GP and the self injury support help line when I can get through. My husband and a couple of friends are aware, but I never talk about it with them. Donít want to admit how often it is happening at the moment.

After your last reply I had another look at some of the resource threads. A bit overwhelming to be honest. As I cut if I feel overwhelmed, I got a bit scared.

Safely home. Managed not to cut today. That is an achievement.

Be proud of yourself  :hug1:
