I think that in itself is surprising, if they made the day then there must be people aware of what is going on.

I just need to work on stopping that self-harming behavior right now, as of today. It’s tough not to self-harm though. I’ve been doing it for about 6, 7 years. I’ve come along way. And my progress has been phenomenal. I couldn’t have done it alone. My therapist has been helping me. I’m very grateful to have her in my life at this time. Well I just wanted to leave a comment saying I support this day and the people who self-harm. It’s an ugly thing to get yourself into. You’ll get sucked in before you know it, then it’s too late. But it’s never too late to quit. Just be strong. And don’t beat yourself up if you have slip ups. They are expected. So just out of curiosity.. do you self-harm Bella-omy?

I am in DBT therapy for self harm (one of my three shrinks that I see). I know there are cutters out there that do bad stuff. Deep or burning (OUCH). I am not big into pain (call me a wimp) and I do not do deep. Mine are more just to relieve stress I guess. I do some simple art work (but I am NO artist) or simple lines (think tally marks). I did the arms (which i LOVE), but it was too visual. So I do not do that anymore (and I miss it). Now I only do thighs and waist area – so it is not visible to anyone. That way my family does not freak. The biggest surprise to me is who all does it. I kinda figured it was a 14 year old girl thing. Then I found out that guys do it too. Adults too. I do not encourage others to do it, but if you do – I get it. Peace.
