I doubt anyone's angry at you for your posts, there's nothing to be angry about. And you're certainly not a failure.

Hey there Midnight, I’m sure Willow and Tigger don’t want anything to happen to you. I’m also certain nobody is angry with you for posting and you’re definitely not a failure!
Gentle hugs 🤗

No you certainly don't. You're a good person and you deserve good things.

Have you ever tried the elastic band around the wrist trick? Any time you get the urge, you pull it and it snaps on your wrist and gives a mild sting. It’s meant to give you a feeling of control back.

I normally use elastic bands like you say but it's still difficult to fight the urges

Please don't think you've failed, people can and do stop self-harming.
Can any of your family support you a bit more?
Your not bad either.

they dont know about me going back to self harm :sorry:

first time they found out about it they yelled at me and made it about them, not about my feelings it was about their feelings, mine are not important enough to bother with :sorry:

I'm sorry your family didn't support you, some people don't know how to help.
Take care
