I hope your doctors appointment today is useful, do you see your doctor often? Maybe that would be a way to have regular supportive contact. I understand that it's hard to confide in people close to you and that their reactions can mean that they aren't able to be supportive. Do you talk to your partner about things other than your self harm, the other things you struggle with? Maybe there is a way to talk around the self harm or maybe he would find some information about what self harm is, such as an info sheet online, to get to understand it a bit better. What is it about self harming that makes you feel like your emotions go away? Is it the pain, distraction, refocus, etc? There might be other ways of achieving those things or learning to deal with the specific emotions that you are feeling at the time.

I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.
