Can I have a private post on your other page please?
As a teenager I was a really bad self harmer. I attempted to take my own life 3 time and was always in and out of hospital with cuts or self inflicted burns.
I had my son at 16 and he completely turned my life around. I stopped hurting myself and drinking and started addressing my problems in other ways, like seeing someone to speak to and channeling my anger and upset into art and music.
Recently my head has been going 100mph, everything seems to have fallen around me and I don’t know why. I suffer with anxiety, PTSD and sever depression.
I’ve found myself scratching my legs and hands until they blister and bleed. I don’t even realise I’m doing it. I’ve tried wearing gloves and I’ve tried distracting myself when stressed but I always end up doing it. Any advice?? I’m not sure if this is classed as self harming or not, but I really don’t wanna end up going back to that dark place😓😓
