As long as you're ok that's all that matters. Everybody has slip ups. Try not to dwell on. Just use this experience and try to make yourself more prepared for the next time you're in crisis

10 months is really good! I don't think that a slip-up makes you dumb at all. Self-harm becomes an addiction and recovery is often a long process. Be patient with yourself!

i know the feeling... i started this 20 years ago when i was just a little kid and it was very difficult to stop. i managed to stay clean for some years after a lot of effort, psychotherapy, antidepressants etc and last year i relapsed. the next morning i felt so awful. all this effort for many years destroyed in a moment. i felt stupid and useless. i took some pictures of the injuries to remind me how bad it was in case i felt the need to do it again. now after one year as my birthday is approaching i feel the urge to do this again. my logic says it is meaningless and i'll only feel worse afterwards but when the night comes and i cannot sleep cause i feel worthless and that i failed in everything i tried the last year, the idea of self harming seems that could give me a relief. I try to stay strong. I'm not sure if i can do it but i hope i can and i hope you can do it too.
