    Life is all a perception. Do you see what I see? ...
    The more I fade away, the more they want me to stay...

    Re: again...

    I'm sorry, Ashley. I can relate. I'm kind of stuck in this pattern right now.

    The things that work for me are to put it off and put it off and put it off until sometimes the urge passes. It doesn't always work, but sometimes it does.

    Sometimes I can distract myself by really getting busy doing something else, cleaning, walking, organizing, reading.

    It's hard and my heart goes out to you.

    Talking about it in therapy is helping me a lot too. Being aware of the WHY am I doing this and that it's not ok and that it does matter, that I matter is helpful.

    Re: again...

    Hi Ashley-Kate...I am so sorry your having a hard time...I'm not very good at advice but I understand the struggling with SI...There are a few things you can try to see if you can keep from Si'ing....I don't know your method of SI but I hope this may help...1. Get a ice cube and hold it tightly in your hand, it smarts but it won't hurt you...2. Put a rubber band on your wrist and pop it HARD...3. Take a red magic marker and color your area that you SI...It looks like blood but easily washed off...I feel bad I cant think of more right now but when I do, I'll post it!...

    I know when you get in that state its hard!...Oh heres a hotline to...1-800-DontCut...I am going to paste it by my phone...rimh
