It has been a long time since i had sh problems, and now again i am, recently i have been really depressed/angry, and sh just feels soooo good, to bite, and to get things out, where i can see them, and they have meaning. I have an appt with a pdoc on friday, but i don't know if i'm going to tell her about my sh because i am to embarrassed, at least here no one has to see me, and i don't have to be ashamed... I have been really depressed and this though it feels good just makes me feel worse knowing that i have done it.
I don't think we've talked muched but I know you're an awesome support system for my good friend Dreams. So you're having some difficulties huh. It really sucks when SH rears it's ugly head when we think we've got it put away doesn't it.
Maybe you should think twice about talking to your pdoc about the SH, do you really think they're going to be shocked and treat you any different? Nope, not gonna happen, they can help you though, maybe teach you some coping skills that you could use instead, or refer you to a tdoc that you could talk to about what's bringing the SH out, because like you said it feels sooo da** good and once we get in that mindset it's sooo hard to stop.
If you want I have a list of Alternative Coping Skills that I could post to you, just let me know, 'kay.
I'll be thinking good thoughts for you and hope you trust in your doc.
I used that one alot. When I was inpatient last time the nurses thought I was crazy, or should I say crazier, when I kept asking for a rubber band, or course they wouldn't give me one, since I was in for a suicide attempt, so my pdoc actually had to write an order for me to have a rubber band, I had to laugh at that one.
