If I've learnt anything being on RYL it's that I am never alone in a behaviour, as awful as it is, that is comforting.
I used to keep pretty exact numbers of how many stitches or staples I needed, how many times I talked to crisis, how many times I walked out... stuff like that.
I was so careful for years to document everything. It made my self-injury feel more real for me. Less like I making up my pain.
Now though, I just don't care anymore. Maybe once you hit a certain number it stops being such a big deal.
Has anyone done this? I felt so weird knowing exactly how many admissions I had had and how many doctors I had seen, really though it soothed me.
Just a random afternoon after emerg thought.
