I’m new to this blog. I’m not much of a writer/blogger but I want to give it a try. I found out about this site through S.A.F.E’s book, which I was recently given to read. I am a college senior and have struggled with self-injury since middle school. I have come a long way since then, but recently I have been relapsing and struggling with my thoughts & feelings. I don’t verbalize what I am thinking and feeling very well, but trying to work on that. I also realized that throughout years of therapy, I/we never really discussed the reason behind my self-injury. I don’t want to resort to SI any more, but I am having a hard time stopping. Hopefully the book will help give me insight on different coping techniques and get to the bottom of it, as well as talking through it with my new therapist. I want to be able to talk about it and not feel scared or embarrassed. I struggle moving beyond this.
