i have a question

How many relapses/blips before u just class yourself as actively self harming again? I have had two blips/relapses in the past two months after a year of not self harming at all just wondering what to class it out at this point

I've said this before in other places, but to me it's not about number or length of time, but about mindset.

I'm taking this from another post I've made:
I personally think relapse versus struggling is subjective and depends more on the place your head is in. Are you wanting/trying to not self harm, or are you knowingly wanting to self harm and just doing it? To me if you are actively wanting not to or trying not to do the behavior, that's more indicative of just struggling. Where if you're just doing the behavior without really thinking or doing it because you want to self harm and don't care about trying to work on other ways to cope, that'd be more like a relapse.



Please do not give me virtual hugs unless you are only using the hug function on threads. Thanks.


You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

I agree completely with Camden. Iím sorry things have been so difficult though. Do you know what helped you stop for a year? That IS an amazing achievement in itself. Try not to get caught up on terminology like relapse or slip. You are you and it sounds like youíve already come a long way.
