I haven't been having too many self harm urges but today I had some memories of the hospital and then after that I have wanted to self harm. It's not all encompassing wanting to. It's a moderate wanting to. I need to get distracted, probably once I am off of work, and then I will probably not notice the urges so much. Right now I am not distracted so I am noticing the urges.


In other news I am taking April 2nd off of work (good Friday) to celebrate the end of Lent. Which I know doesn't officially end until Easter. But I figure if I make it to Good Friday I will make it to Easter.

I'm having bad urges today. I know that means that my level of distress is overwhelming my coping strategies. I know that is all that it means. I have to wonder if it is worth it to throw everything away for the sweet relief SH would bring.

Now I am numbed out and no longer care. I got so distressed that my numbing coping mechanism took over. I don't care. I hope I stay numb.

Still numb. At least it's better than tons of urges.
