Default Ive slipped

I am rather annoyed with myself. After nearly a year without S/H I did it again yesterday.

I did it in 2 different places and what makes it worse I knew and wanted to do it. Whereas before I didnt want to do it and wasnt focused enough to stop myself. This time I was able to stop myself but I didnt and didnt want to.

It is deep enough for medical treatment but again didnt get it. I dont know what is going on with me as this is out of my character. I have looked after the wound properly though so I suppose thats a start. Unusually it didnt help either which has left a lot more going on inside my head.
What a whole mess this is

With addiction there is bound to be relapses, so when they happen you have to go against the part of you that wants to partake in that addictive behavior and be very strict with yourself. You need to try to be really strong right now even if it feels like there's no point to it, so you don't spiral and end up making this relapse into a full on thing. Good luck and I hope the urges to SH go away soon

Well put. And I may add, don't translate being very strict with yourself as punishing yourself. Being harsh on yourself will only feed the cycle. Do the self care and self compassion. It's not easy but it's worth it.


Best of luck to you Lilyfrog.

its a bump in the road, but not the end of the road so be gentle on yourself
do you have a counsellor or someone that you can talk to about whats happening?
