Rough day
Today started off pretty rubbish, was supposed to be seeing my boyfriend but then got a text off him telling me he couldnt make it and i was really looking forward to seeing him. Ive pretty much been sat on here all day feeling sorry for myself :(
I googled self harm support websites and accidentaly clicked on a pro self harm website, it had some awful pictures on there...and im feeling really triggered now and i dont know what to do :( i really want to cut

Does it help, if you try doing something totally else? For example play some video game, read, draw, something you really like.

I'm hoping you're doing ok now. Always try the best to distract yourself when you get the urge. I know you're strong enough to beat the urge, so you should be able to make it through just fine. We're all here for you. :)

it's quite a while since you posted i know but i hope you're doing better now. if i have something triggering, an image or a thought, in my head, sometimes looking at pages like cyanide&happiness or lolcats can help. it's really immature and doesn't always help but laughing can help for me

hey hun just wanted to send *bighugs* im here if you want to talk, sorry you arent feeling so good atm, im sure things will get better, also maybe try the 15 minute thing? where you tell yourself you will wait 15 minutes and then another until the urge passes.
