Hello everyone:

I just wanted to greet everyone as I am new to this site.  I’m hoping to find some sort of inspiration and encouragement here, and hopefully from that, a will to want to stop my self injuring.  It’s going on 8 years now, and this form of coping is proving to be very destructive for me.  But as I’m sure most of us here know, it’s not that easy to just let it go, especially when we’re going through really tough ordeals.  I think we’re all very brave for reaching out on this site. 🙂
