Can you try to draw with a pen in that area in those times instead of harming?
I can try, but it wouldnt give the same feeling

Self harms leave permenent scars even when its not a life threatening self harms, i have scars on my legs from self harms that will always be there :(
I'm sorry
I know scars will occur, but in the moment it seems like the most immediate thing that will help

It’s actually not my idea, it’s from my daughter’s therapist. It could help (by exercising at that very moment) to realise you can postpone the real action and then even not needing it anymore
