Hello all,

I am a new member to this site… which I am guessing you can probably tell. I bought the Bodily Harm book a few years ago when I went through a tough period of self-injury. The book definitely helped me stop for over year. Unfortunately I started again about a month ago due to some relationship problems, and stress due to my upcoming graduation in May from graduate school. I feel incredibly guilty about starting again because I am working in a helping profession and feel I should “know better”. I guess I just feel ridiculously overwhelmed with life and then dealing with it with self-injury makes it hard because I feel like I should be beyond turning to it to help me through rough times. Are there any other people out there in helping professions who still struggle??
