Re: hurting myself
First of all you are not an idiot! No you are like the rest of us, in pain and needing encouragement. Don't put yourself down for having stuggles. I don't understand why you can't have consuling now. You can always send me a note and chat. Don't give up, realizing and wanting to stop is a great first step. I used to cut all the time on my legs and now its been only a year since I stopped. But the scars are so bad on my thighs that people notice if I don't wear long enough short pants here in the hot weather where I live. The stigma is with me forever, and I wish that it doesn't happen to you as it does me. Don't give up! I know that is easy to say, but when I was struggling I wish someone would have at least given me an encouraging word but I got none, unless I paid for it by having professional counsoling, but why should anyone have to pay for the only encouragement in thier life? So I am determined to also encourage others.
