Brought up my frequent self harm with my dad over text. And he gave me some of the best advice I've ever heard. Instead of telling me to just go cold turkey or "just stop it", he said "don't stop, just get help at the same time."

I don't know why but those words actually help a lot. It makes everything seem a lot more manageable. Because I don't WANT to stop, but I know that all my friends will end up leaving me if I don't try and get help. It makes me feel like he actually understands how hard it is to stop even though I don't think he's ever self harmed before.

Just once in a while, dads really earn their gold stars :-) Nice to know we have something to offer.

I have heard that useing an elastic band on your wrists can help, pain but no scars

@WillowRay I do that sometimes. It's not the same relief but it's a step in the right direction.
