hi
my name is bluekatey
im 46 years old
i have been cutting for 31 years
started when i was 15
i dont really have much hope of
stopping because i have tried and went to
all the usual things like counseling and tried meds
but none of it has helped
hopefully i can at least make friends and
learn some distractions to at least reduce my cutting
and maybe help someone else.

Hi all :p

I'm River 24 from the UK.
Love to read my mini library at home
Self harmed since 14, now in recovery with few slip ups here and there.
I don't need to self harm about things any more, I have other outlets :)

Hope everyone is having a good day.

Hi all,
I have just realized that i have made two pretty long posts but have failed to introduce myself to everyone. So here is a bit about me.........

my name is Tj and im 38 years young and come from south london. Was born female but now identify as genderqueer but live my life as much as i can in a male identity. I work in a nursery with children under the age of 5 at the moment but am currently at university doing my Early Years Foundation Degree which will hopefully allow me to move up into management ( i cant do a worse job than the managers at my current setting do).

I have been with my partner for about 3.5 years and i love her to bits. She is the milk in my coffee and the ketchup on my chips, in other words she makes my life complete and i would not be here today if it was not for her. Infact id go as far as to say i owe her my life. . We have BIG plans for the future and as individuals and as a couple we are making HUUUUUUGE steps to working towards our goals.

I initially came across this site when looking for information on distraction techniques for my wife who self harms, but on further reading i have found there is also a space for me too in the eating disorders section (where i have already posted).

I think that this is probably enough about me for now and i look forward to meeting you guys and getting to know people better around the boards in the future.

TJ

It's nice to know that this can still be a problem as we get older.

It's nice to know that this isn't something I should have "grown out of."

Heya, Im Matt.
Im 25, im currently 3 and a half years self harm free however i do still the lingering urges from time to time. I live in London and work as a sign writer, though im trying to get a job in blacksmithing if i can find someone to take me on.
My SI started when i was 16. Im still on medication to control my mood, but its a lot better then all those years ago.
Oh and i was a former V1 & V2 RYL goer, but took a hiatus from it.

I hope that was good enough.

Hello.

I'm Liz and 25 from the US. I was on RYL years ago when I was a late teen, but so much happened I stopped. Been in recovery for a year now... hoping I keep going. Been having a really rough year and knew I needed some support as well as kinda just missed RYL, so I'm back. I'm going to school, slowly, for computer security, and working full-time as well. No kids or partners.

Hello, I made a post before saying hi - oh dear. :x

Hi! My name is Cara, and I live in Ohio in the USA. You may call me Cara. :)
I'm 21 years old and I've self-harmed my way through high school, and tore free for a couple years while I persued my dream of designing by going to a fantastic 2 year college. I've graduated now - over a year ago. It was such a huge accomplishment. I was high on life, except that to deal with the stress of pprtfolio combined with my self hate and feeling I didn't deserve to graduate, I fell back into it. Harder, and better at it.

I'm very much in a stale mate. I'm so socially isolated that I'm terrified to find stable work and function in the world. I would be designing through the face of the internet, but my computer was destroyed a month after I graduated from college. I quickly spiraled afterwards and let's just say I've been a serious wreck since. I do have a seasonal job, though, that will be starting in less than a month and with that money I have to buy a car and move out of my family's house. I deal with over eating and depression and hoarding and ocd and I'm afraid to tell my doctor, especially since I'll be losing my healh insurance soon...

It's all very scary.
Anyways... Ranting like I did in my intro thread. Lawl.

Hi again! I know I'm young and crazy, but ot's nice to meet you all and I respect you each greatly.

Hello. My name is Emily... my husband calls me Mouse... hence the username. I am 21 going on 22. Finishing up Nursing school this year and loving it... sort of. I have fought Depression, GAD, SI, and slight OCD for over 7 yrs now... and ED for over 4. I have won battles before, but am currently in the middle of a losing one. *sigh*
I was a member of RYL, more of a lurker, back when it was Ruin.. but left for a while to try and turn a new leaf... obviously i didn't. so I'm back... but under a different name. I used to be *broken*wings*... but I forgot that password.
I love cats,horses, piano, babies, pregnant people ( i know I'm weird), music, and silence... also cookiedough ice cream.

Ah Hi all

I joined the site a few weeks ago but sort of lurked for a few days then disappeared till now.

I'm Baye and I am from Canada, I am soon to be 45 at the end of December. I have suffered from depression and on meds for 14 years. Had other emotional issues and trauma that had me in therapy at the age of 11 years old.

I SI'ed from the late teens but even before that in the early teens would punch things when I was angry or emotional.

So I am in a very bad place right now and will be posting to the boards soon.

Baye

I've been here since easter! My names Rhian! I'm 22 and live in good old Yorkshire in the north of England

I used to be a member many years ago, back when it changed over from ruin to recover!

I lurk a lot and haven't really spoken to many people since I've been back so I thought I'd say 'ello!

I spent the last 4 years of my life doing a Graphic Design degree and I started my MSc in Developmental Psychology earlier this week... bit of a change I know but I spent the final year of my degree working my ass off doing a higher education certificate in Psychology at the same time!

Bye for now! Rhian

HI, sorry I have made some posts without introducing myself.

I'm 38 and from the North of England. I have been self harming for 12 years since my first major breakdown, although I have been depressed since I was in my mid teens (I was too scared to get help then).

I'm a lot better than I used to be but keep on having blips which cause havoc to me and those in my life.

Currently things aren't good.
