Did you choose to recover?

Did you choose to recover, did it just happen, or did it get gradually easier over time?

It just sort of happened, I didn't really make a conscious choice to suddenly stop or anything. I just stopped feeling the need, maybe because things stopped affecting me the way the used to, I dunno. Still, I had no reason to stop so I could stray back into it easily. It's a fine line.

I'd say I'm the same as well. But over time I'm less and less feeling the need that if something bad happens I have to run back to SH.

Yes.
But mainly because I knew that I couldn't continue the way I was and because of a lot of support from my friends.



For what it's worth it was worth all the while. I hope you had the time of your life...

I don't think that i'm ready for recovery ,that would make things worse if i'm not ready yet for it ,
i'm cut free now for 8 days but i didn't choose it it just happened ,i hope that there will be a day that i can do it and be free forever

Yes. Because I know I have to, for so many people. But then...I guess that's a no. I want to stop because I am hurting other people, when I hurt myself.



Do it for those who know you can and for those who think you canít.

when my parents found out, it was harder to hide. everything just got harder.

my parents found out and made my life hell, but at the time i wasn't ready to give up. i found more 'secret' places to harm and was careful to do it when nobody else was awake and could hear/confront me. it was about 4 months until i ready to give up the self-harm.

It was a combiantion of things for me, I just kind stopped, I didn't see the point anymore, and I wanted to be free for when I started uni and moved out off supported accomodation. It was part of my care plan, I couldn't move out if I hadn't stopped, but after while it just happened without me thinking about it.




this is the first day of my life
Iím glad I didnít die before I met you
But now I donít care I could go anywhere with you
And Iíd probably be happy
