***Trigger Warning... (I don't know. I feel like anything I write here might trigger someone). I had not harmed in a while. Thought I was done with it. Then I started picking at the skin on my feet. Did it till bloody. Now I am feeling I need to cut. I still have scars from years ago. Had to wear long sleeves for years. I don't want to start again. It seems dumb, but there are family functions I need to attend and I don't want to be all torn up. But the idea of going to the get togethers makes me so uncomfortable I feel I need relief. Not going increases my depression. It is the snake eating it's tail. How do I stop?

Honey why not try pampering yourself instead of hurting. Try and give yourself a pedi it will make you feel so much better and make you feel good about going to the family outings. I know that it can get stressful I get nervous about going to functions myself so I try and do things to look pretty so that when I go I feel so much better. Please don't hurt yourself anymore it's so not worth it. Sending healing hugs to you. xxx

@Jennipain Thanks. I try to do things that soothe me. Once I started to peel the skin on my feet and it got a little bloody I stopped and feel much better today. Need to remember the feelings will pass. I appreciate your support more than you know!
