I started to self-harm when I'm alone and a really stressful situation happens.

My SH was always instant and no time to even think about phoning for help, but in the end I got that help that was when I was 40 years old and the least time I ever SH I am now 59 and still not SH and in just over 2 weeks I will be 20 years stopped but to help me stop I had to work all my demons through.

Came home from a week (-1 day) of field assembly.
Felt pretty bad. Forced myself to lift weights when i knew something was wrong.
Propably was about to SH. Avoided it this time.

Not sure why my mood swings are worse currently.
It goes from 100 to 10 and from 10 back up to 80 quickly.

I like to self harm where nobody can see it. I am trying to find alternatives.

Just caught myself thinking about self harm.
That has been the first time i actually consciously thought about it.
Thanks to my head tho. Never has been easier to avoid it.
My mind literally gave me the queue.

Please try not to go down that path. I t has been so hard to stop. I know it isn't easy. Everyone says " you are loved, you are liked " I can not seem to stop, even with all the " positive reinforcement"

Unfortionally, i am already there. SH feels somewhat "nice" to me right when it happens.
But after the good feelings go away, i despise myself when i think about what i've just done.

Im sorry for what you are going through.
My SH is different. I really tend to not care what people say to/about me except in certain situations like when im backed into a wall. For me, its just a burst of rage, i either give in and SH or fight my mind for an hour or so and am fine. Its almost like an addiction. Its about the smallest things, it makes no sence.

About an hour after i came home, i (self harmed).
I put the () because i snapped out of it right away, got up and startet cleaning my fridge.
No marks are visible anymore so it wasn't damaging.

Please try your best not to hurt your self as it really does not help, instead totally change what you were doing a minute or second before you SH.
