Self Harm while drinking

Last night, in my infinite wisdom, I decided to hurt myself.

<details removed>

Obviously I had been drinking, otherwise I wouldnít have been so stupid! I wonít go to my doctor. I donít trust or like her. As far as Iím concerned the only thing she is good for is writing the prescription for my pain medications Ė Iíve spinal nerve damage and on oxycontin for severe sciatica. Whenever I try to discuss any new ailment with her she blames it on my back problems without pursuing it any further so I donít bother talking to her about anything anymore.

I want to stop doing things like this to myself. Drinking is the reason I do stupid things like this and I want to stop, but part of me does not. I feel like I donít have anyone to talk to and donít know how to break my behaviour patterns.

Re: Self Harm while drinking

Its like you're talking about me, I do that too (although not all the time).

Saw a psychiatrist today and been referred to therapy - nervous about it but trying to take the attitude that doing something is better than doing nothing. Its tough as I've been behaving like this since 1988 so its a hard habit to break.

I'm not sure if this is helpful or not but wanted to let you know that you're not alone x
