Long story short, I am 31 years old, have injured since I was five.  I started working through the SAFE program through the Bodily Harm book, and after a few years, I became injury free.  I am happy to say that to this day, I have been injury free for five years now.  This is the longest I have ever been without injuring, but I still have thoughts and urges to injure.  Sometimes those urges are so strong that I almost give into them.  My Pastor helped me work through the program as part of the program, we set a date that when I reached it injury free, I would receive a ring, a promise ring.  When I get my thoughts and urges, I always reach for my ring and think about the day I received it and how I got to where I am now, and how I have come so far and I don’t want to loose that progress, that has kept me from falling back on injuring, but it hasn’t changed the fact that I still struggle with the urges and thoughts.  Is this normal?  I don’t know anyone else who has been injury free to ask them.  I just found this blog today, I have not visited the SAFE site for years, so I am glad that I found it now!  Please let me know what you think.  Thank you….
