I haven’t felt this way in awhile. I’ve been doing really well.
Just bought my own house, got promoted at my job.
I still can’t get these horrible feelings away. They come and go and now they’re back again.

"They come and go ..." and they probably always will. Try to focus on the "... and go ..." part of that statement. Self-harm is, at best, a *very* temporary relief when you are in a lot of pain. In the long run it causes more problems than it solves. Keep looking for strategies that help you to cope in a non-harmful way: courses, meditation, prayer, distractions, gratefulness journalling, meds, etc.. You can do "really well" again sometime soon.

You have to reward yourself on good terms. For example, after work you can join the YMCA and go swimming. During the work week, I suggest you start repeating or humming the lyrics to a song that you can relate too. I don't work in an office but if I did, I would Humm the music in order to Distract. I Used to get images that will show up out of nowhere.

Its okay to stop, breathe, live & be happy... Be proud of yourself & your accomplishments. You deserve it. Focus on the positive things & when the bad feelings start slipping in, say OUT LOUD things your grateful for. Redirecting works.
