Hi!  To be honest, I’m kind of nervous to be writing about this so publicly.  I have been SIing for about four years now and I finally admitted it to my parents in the last two months.  I hate that I’m hurting my family so much by SIing.  I want to stay strong and I want to be able to get past all of this one day.  I know it’s going to take some time, but I’m hoping that talking out loud about it will help a little bit.  Are there any suggestions in how some of you are coping with the urge to SI.  I’ve tried several remedies, I haven’t had any success, though.  I’m constantly going back to square one, I feel so trapped in this cycle, and I would just like to step out of it, even if it’s just for a few moments.  Thanks so much!!  🙂
