Hiya everyone,

I am wondering if we could create a virtual nurturing safe room in here. Somewhere safe and cosy where us selfharmers can look after each other when we are getting urges. The focus being on comforting each other and distraction.

In my mind i imagine this safe room to like the living room of a big cottage in the countryside with 2 big sofas and a big log fire to keep us cosy.

I have brought in a pile of fleecy blankys for us.
Please bring in whatever you want but it must be a good thing......


Note to Mischief: can i please have this pinned to the board please?

That's lovely rowan. I have found a rocking chair. I am going to get the log fire going and then wrap up in my blanky on the rocking chair. I have left a big bag of mini choclate bars on the table if anyone wants some :sleepy2:

Yes, a warm drink does make you feel comforted. I always have a hot water bottle to put over my stomach too.

I don't see any reason why this can't be a 'sticky'?
