Hi I have used another forum but it loads so slowly and some days it does not even go to the right page so hopefully this will be better and I can vent when I need to.
I have been self harming for a few months. Some good days where I could control the urge but most days I can't. I can't really pinpoint the reason why I do it, I think it's a combination of loneliness, boredom, and escaping from anxiety and the stresses of every day life. I also want to self harm pretty much anytime I am emotionally drained, such as coming home from doing errands or after an outing with family and friends (well, as often as that actually happens...)
But anyways, I look forward to getting to know all of you. I have trouble talking about my feelings to pretty much anyone in person.

Hello and :welcome:

I'm so sorry you're in the midst of self-harm in the moment. It's great that you're opening up about it, though - it's a really good step on the road to recovery.

I hope you find this forum useful and supportive.

:hug1:

P.S.
