I just recently relapsed with self harm, so you are not alone! It’s not easy and recovery is not linear. What I find best that works is always speaking up. It’s the hardest thing ever for me, personally. But it’s the first step to recovery.

Therapy and medication is quite different for everybody. Some people take ages to find the right meds that best works for them, or the right therapist. Heck, even both of them may not be their kind of help. You won’t know till you try! Maybe if you try therapy and see how it goes? ☺

15 years must feel like a long time at the age of 26, more than half your life. Your brain must be very used to and dependent on getting the rush of chemicals that are produced from harming yourself.

If it's not too personal can you recall what made you start? 11 is about the time we start high school in the UK, I remember that being a stressful time transitioning to such a big school, new people and teachers etc.

I never experienced bullying until I reached high school, I remember infant and junior school being more or less ok, I didn't have many friends but the few I had were good ones.

No course you can ask anything that is what we here for. I started self harming due to childhood sexual abuse, i knew it was wrong before then but when i was in high school thats when i found self harm. :/
