Re: It has been ___ days since I SIed -- Part V!
 
6 months now, I believe. :) I have been struggling with self-harm and suicidal thoughts due to a depression that I believe has been caused by the use of Ativan. Working on weaning myself off and learning different coping tools to address my anxiety.

Sending hugs to all struggling. :hug:

What do you find has been helping you to stay away from SI?

:hug:

A combination of being busy and tired I think. I keep getting urges but by the time I have an opportunity to act on them Iím just too tired to bother.

Thank you :) It's mostly willpower. I don't want to end up with a scar on my arm and then try to hide it at work. I wear short sleeve shirts and I feel ashamed of my scars. Unless I'm in so much anger then I find no reason to hurt myself. I can use distractions to help myself calm down.
