People don't have telescopic eyesight so I doubt that they saw much. Sorry you are having a bad time.

aSK YOUR PSYCHIARIST IF YOU HAVE SCHIZOPHRENIA? iT IS AN ILLNESS THOUGH A PRETTY SEVERE ONE. however there are a number of treqtments for it, qnd if you don't know the diqgnosis it is diffiulc for you to accept your illness and to get the best tretment for it. So ASK as a lot of them won't tell you or commit themselves.

Not self harmed for 3 days, but charm of Atos result is wearing off. Oh well, at least Merlin is on soon.

Thats very strong of you to have not SH for 3 days. I hope you are keeping safe. Well done and I hope Merlin helped give you a break from everything even for just an hour.

Thanks Angels and jo1760.

I made it to 4 days but the run is over. At least I've switched back to the leg with I see as being less serious than the arm, and it was shallow, unlike the past few weeks.

And more importantly, why couldn't Merlin get out of those chains, if he is so powerful?

Had DBT assessment. Have to wait about 3 weeks to find out if I'm offered it.

Mental health services favourite phrase must be 'Does that make sense?"

Hi dl. What about ice cubes.....ice will hurt if you apply it for just a little while but it will also melt before you manage to do too much damage (usually - I have damaged skin with applying it in the past) Is it pain that relieves or is it bleeding? Sorry, I don't mean to be prying but the alternatives are different depending on what you usually do. Also, give me a nod if I'm around and you want to post me privately - I can't help but I can listen.


I have used DBT to help me stop SH and it has helped enormusly. I now no longer SH. With much compassion.....maxitab.

Have you found out yet what gives you the urge to SH? I would suggest that you ask to see an occupational therapist. Perhaps if you had something to do with your hands, and to take your mind off the SH it would help. Ask your G.P. And please stop picking" it will only make the scars worse.
