It is important to be as open as you can be with your therapist to ensure the best possible outcome. Self harm is a negative coping mechanism that all too quickly turns into an addiction. One of the things that I have found that has made a difference is to track all of my moods and behaviors. By doing this I was able to see the patterns that would appear before a self harm session began plus doctors love this kind of information.

Hi Tiffany,
My heart goes out to you right now, but I promise you, you are not alone.
I'm pleased that your going on holiday, your already doing better than me.
I haven't had a holiday in nine years, my scares are so bad that I can't remove my clothing. I however have a condition called DID, so I don't know I'm self-harming untill I wake up. I do know how you feel, and I know how much it hurts when you see the scaring. If you are like me then your know that when people keep stareing at you it hurts as much as the scaring its-self. I'm hopeing that yours is now more of a habit than a mental illness, as I strongly believe that you are a strong young girl with a great future ahead of you. Please sweatheart do not do as I did, forget the past (kick it in backside) and move on, or else in a few years you could be where I am and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Your crying out for help and I will pray for you to get it. I wish that you could see what I have done to myself over the years then maybe if it is a habit you would stop. I am a great deterrent for self-harming. Stay away from the blades and buy a hard punch bag, it's better that your knuckels bleed than your face and body. Be strong and possitive, YOU CAN BEAT THIS.
Goodluck and keep safe xxx
