The temptation to cut *TRIG*

Last night, I wanted to cut. I haven't cut for 2.5 years. But last night, following a horrible afternoon and evening (see my posts on the friends and family board), I wanted to numb the emotions. I have the DBT skills to 'ride the wave' but I didn't want to do that. I wanted the feelings to go away....

Re: Friend in crisis...again. Warning: ranting

Thanks for your response. I do understand what you're saying. I'm just not sure exactly where she is right now. She'll 'happily' talk to me about her problems dealing with emotions. She's diagnosed BPD and is under a specialist BPD network where she currently has a CPN. She's supposed to be starting...

Friend in crisis...again. Warning: ranting

Why do I have such dysfunctional friends?! I chatted with my friend this morning, arranging to meet her tomorrow at Sycamore House (a cafe and meeting place for people with mental health problems). This afternoon she told me she'd overdosed...again. Bang goes our meeting. Sodding hell. She waited he...

Re: Friend in crisis and I'm struggling

Thanks Christabel. My friend has just got home from the hospital. The crisis team told her to stop 'acting up' which hardly seems an appropriate thing to say to someone in distress. She got even more upset and smacked her head off a brick wall. The result? 14 staples in the original wound, plus glue...

Friend in crisis and I'm struggling

I have plenty of problems of my own right now, trying to maintain stability with my mental health. However, I have a friend who is struggling even more than me. She's just phoned me in really distressed tears because she's self harmed (cut badly) in a public place (a park). I'm at a loss. I've final...

Poem - Failure (self harm, anorexia, distress)

Failure Sometimes it seems like everything I try to do goes wrong; As if I'm singing, but keep forgetting the words of the song. I try so hard to do what's right and make them all so proud; But inside I feel like screaming - violent, long and loud. I eat the meals to please them, ignoring the voice...

EMDR query

I'm scheduled to begin EMDR in a few weeks time. Or at least the preparation stage. However, I'm really worried about it and would like to benefit from anyone's experiences. The therapist tells me that the EMDR will process the trauma memories so that they don't give me such strong/overwhelming emot...

Re: Poem: Strange Place

I love the imagery in this. Also the idea of a Strange Place. It captures the feelings when you start to fall and, although you've been there before, it still feels alien.
I hope you're doing okay today.
