Feeling proud

The most challenging day or two, mind working over time thinking of new ways to harm myself without causing more serious harm. Got into a state this morning and instead of turning to my usual vice, I called a friend and cried ( for the first time in about a year)
Still can't stop thinking about awful things and gutted my arm is still infected and in a lot of pain but proud that just that once I didn't self destroy.

I'm really glad you resisted your urges and used a healthy way to let emotions out. :) Very strong of you.

Well done :hug: I imagine it must have been very difficult for you, but I'm glad you called your friend :)

Glad you decided to call a friend instead. Very good decision. It takes strength to do what you did, and also vulnerability. You definitely should feel proud. :)

:hug5:

Ditch the cider, get some kip. Waking up without a hang over is ace ( don't manage it that often, but have tonight) - that sounded smug, soz.
You got through today, well done. Did you manage to cover up ok ?

Exactly, one day at a time, I can't believe how on the edge yesterday was and then different again today. Great to work in the chillers brrrrrrrr. What an excuse. How about having a cuppa ?

I'm dreading tomorrow for different reasons but plan to stay up and watch the election all night (yawn) -make some use out of this insomnia.
Tomorrow is another day ! Good luck
