alright so shdsfdfsfdfsfdfsfds i'm currently like recovering from self harm and it's been like a month or like 3 and a half weeks since i last cut!!! there was also this part of recovery that i like to call 'emotional numbness' because it's not really an emotion. it's like a lack of emotion. i hated getting it- which led to me wanting to be sad again- but i'm doing a lot better! that emotion-thingy is a lot less frequent and i relly less on things online to keep me happy! speaking of which, i'm getting more happy recently (and not for the wrong reasons)! i'm super proud that i can finally accept the fact that what i did was unhealthy. i never accepted that before. i'm so glad websites like these could help me whenever i didn't want to speak to real people. thank you to anybody who ever left a comment on my insights. each one of you were very kind and helpful. and to anyone who is starting recovery, you can do it. it has it's downsides, but once you start really recovering, you'll be very happy. i know i sure am. <3

im so glad that you took the steps to recovery. i read all your posts and was really worried because i was in the same boat not that long ago and its not a good place to be. i used to cut almost every day and after about 3 years of it they started to get so deep that i would get lightheaded and dizzy from blood loss. i havent cut since february which i think is like 7 months ago wow but it was very very hard for me to get the recovery and honestly i didnt stop carrying a blade with me until about 2 1/2 months ago like it took me so long to finally let go of self harm and im so happy now that i finally did :) i hope that you keep going and dont relapse and if you feel any temptation to cut you can come to me or honestly anyone on this website for help :))
