i think its okay for me to say that ex would make threats of self harms and suicide attempts if i dared to disobey his wants, which messed me up and sent me into full on borderline personality disorder mode :(

midnight's ex is the boss :salut:

I am sorry you feel bad for derailing the thread because I am the one who was encouraging you too. If you would like to carry this on in your journal then I am happy to. Your ex was an abusive scum bag. It is terrible he caused you to have bpd.

Tawny is only allowed to be nice to herself as well :hug:
I don't think anybody minds that this thread got us all talking about something so important to us all. Let's hope a bit of healing went on tonight and people went to bed giving themselves an imaginary there there hug.

We can talk more in your journal, or mine, i don't mind ;) talk anywhere you want :)


I hope you aren't all stirred up emotionally, anyone. A little bit at a time. One day at a time.

Group hug (with masks and hand gel)
:grouphug:
I mean face coverings
:doh:
(That was intentional)
:ROFLMAO:
Oh Matt (Health minister)
We love you really :loveshower:

Midnight's pets :cheekkiss: look after your meowmy tonight

This may be a dumb question but I don't know...it's just something I have been wondering about haha, why do people sometimes harm their face instead of somewhere discreet? I also wonder why so many people harm the wrists too, but even then those are easier to hide than the face. I wonder because so many people who self harm are embarrassed and ashamed, so I just wonder why they choose these easy to see places?

This is not meant to be judgemental I am just wondering as someone who also has experience with self harm 🙏

Are you better now?
I am! I've done a lot of work since then, and I'm definitely in a much better place. Thank you for the concern, Tawny. You are a lovely person. :)
