    Day 54 - 26 days clean. I was so close yesterday to losing it all, but I didn't. It becoming really hard.

    Well done @LorryTruck you're doing really well <3
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Hey @LorryTruck ,

    Your strength and determination these last few weeks has been amazing. I am so pleased that you have been able to avoid self-harming for 26 days. Fidget cubes are a great idea btw! It is good to relieve your pain and stress in a non-harmful way.

    I hope you had a nice weekend. What did you get up to?

    :)

    @LorryTruck a month, wow! I am really happy for you. Do you have a method of coping for times like last night when you were really struggling.

    Keep taking it one day at a time. You've got this.

    @LorryTruck I'm so proud of you for doing so well. Even if it is a struggle, it is worth it. I'm glad you've been enjoying music and using that as a way to cope. I honestly use that too mostly.

    I have two favourite bands: Bring Me The Horizon and Citizen Soldier. I actually really love them so much. Yeah I know hits radio, they play pretty good music sometimes I agree. Any favourite artists?

    Yeah I'm definitely getting one ha, seems like it would be useful

    Oh cool! Bring Me The Horizon are the ones who did 'Can You Feel My Heart', right? Hmm, no particular favourite artists! I tend to go through phases haha. Listening to quite a bit of Lauv's stuff atm :)

    Did you get a fidget cube in the end?

    (also well done for reaching 30 days! <3)

    Hi @LorryTruck <3
    You are doing absolutely brilliantly! <3 I struggle with it myself too, and I don't know what coping mechanisms you have in place, but I'll say what I do incase it helps you <3 when I get the urges (and don't laugh at me XD) I'll put on some really cringy music to make me laugh and have a proper workout (whether it be strength or stamina), until all I can think about is how my heart is pumping round my body and how amazing the body is to keep up with what we demand of it. The oxygen rushing to your lungs, absorbing into the blood stream, all whilst your body realises it's too hot and sweats to cool down. It's simply amazing :3
    I don't know if that helps, but sometimes maybe heading for a state of bodily appreciation can be really special :3<3
    With hugs,
    meila <3

    Keep going - well done and shout scream if u need to, let it out! Be proud 😀
  • AislingDMAislingDM Moderator Posts: 1,666 Extreme Poster
    That sounds extremely stressful for you, particularly when you've just started a new school year. Having all this unexpected pressure and challenges is really frustrating, so it's unsurprising that you were unintentionally rude. Plus the fact that you recognise that this was not great is really good and reinforces how much of a good person you are! We are so proud of you xx
