I would recommend copious amounts. Big Grin

Well it really does help headaches, less stress, boost your immune system, improves self-esteem, allows you to sleep better, and burn a little calories. The intimacy aspect of sex can help with self mutilation but that is entirely dependent on the people involved and is obviously not a cure.

A healthy view of sex and regular masturbation are something I would recommend. And don't forget that masturbation helps with depression as well (aka improved self-esteem).

Um, yeah. That's what I meant to say. Tongue

RE: Recovery.
I can't do it.
Tonight won't work.
I'm giving up.
Maybe not forever but for at least today.

Tonight
I'm cutting
For a few days
I'm not eating.

It's okay, but keep trying.

Okay. You can only get people riled up so often. I say this with the upmost sincerity and concern for your welfare: I hope they catch you, and I hope they commit you to an institution. Because that's where you belong right now. You are a danger to yourself, and anyone on the verge of suicide has to be at least somewhat of a danger to others.

Good luck. I will not read anything else you write about harming yourself, and I will not respond to it.

RE: Recovery.
Though I said I would, I did not cut tonight. Though I have hardly eaten.

Glad to hear. One step at a time.

Congratulations! Small steps in the right direction are far more important that large ones. We usually fall backward when we take large steps. Wink

I understand how difficult it is to do what you're doing now but I can't impress enough the importance of journaling. When you have thought of cutting, think about the thoughts that occurred just before and the emotions they induced and then, write that down.

When you're having a particularly good day and you want to do some introspection, read your journal and think about the girl you're reading about. Think about her feelings and what she has experienced. And then, think about how to help her.

That's a step toward self knowledge.

What does this cutting look like? Next time film it so we can appreciate the urge and maybe suggest alternatives. I bite my fingernails down to the nubs until they bleed. Have for 40 years now. That's my release. I may not be so much different than you.

Breathing - it's more art than science.

You should be very proud of yourself for not cutting this evening. You are stronger than you think. How have you been doing today?

RE: Recovery.
Yesterday was recovery day 6.
I ate:
  • an apple
  • chicken sandwich and fries
  • and some peanut butter toast.
I ended up puking it all though.
My body just won't let me keep it down.
I went to the bathroom 4 times yesterday to throw up.
2 times food.
2 times just straight blood.

I'm really starting to get scared.
I haven't cut, but I catch myself thinking about doing it quite a lot.
What if I can't do this?

Day 7, today.
I've had:
  • some oreos
  • a peach pie
  • and some chef boyardee.
I haven't puked, but I feel the need to.
I've been thinking about cutting a lot today..
