    OH s**t

    Oh s**t. Had a good day, but now really struggling. Can't say how, but it's enough to say I'm starting to become unsafe. I spoke to one of the support workers. Told him I had a good day, but my awareness that because of that I can get urges to harm myself because I feel guilty. I'm not sure...
