why again

Hey Ashley Kate, You have done really well for the two months, i know what its like to slip up. Have you tried things like holding or putting you hands in ice, running on the spot, letting it out on other objects?
Im sorry if im not much help with this, i just know distractions and alternatives are helpful when wrting things down doesnt work.
Im here if you want to talk

Not cutting for two months is really excellent and you should be proud of yourself...remember that just because you slipped up does NOT mean that you have relasped...it was just a difficult time and you made a mistake...everyone makes mistakes...as far as what you can do as a distraction...writing doesn't work for me either BUT talking in to a tape recorder about whatever comes into my mind does help a lot...this is also something that if you feel comfortable can take w/ you to your therapists at your sessions and have him/her listen to what was exactly going through your mind when you had the urge to cut...i hope that you are doing better....kels :)
