okay to link to relevant threads in different subforums?
for example, the way my self-harm behaviors manifest--both triggers and the actual act itself--are really heavily shaped by the specific patterns of trauma/abuse i've gone through. since abuse talk and primary SI talk are subjects for different subforums, would it be alright for me to link to a post from my abuse thread (with warnings) in one of my own threads, if it was relevant to a behavior of mine i'm trying to figure out?
for example: 'i just realized [X nonstandard method] may be a self-harm thing, which i learned to do as a way to feel safe from [Y instance of abuse]. (i've written more about that [here (link)].) i need to figure out how to put that method out of my reach, pinpoint the underlying trauma logic so i can address it when it pops up, and/or find out what will work best to distract me.'
thoughts? i hope this makes sense.
