    Hello, did you have treatment or help for the issues that caused you to self harm?

    hello sarah!

    if you'd like to (you don't have to) but perhaps tell us what caused the issue to begin with?

    it's entirely optional... it's just nice to have understanding of people and why they do something

    as for things to stop you from self harming, have you heard of something called the butterfly project

    the idea is to draw a butterfly on your arm, and name it after a loved one, or someone that cares about you and wants you to get better

    if you cut, you kill the butterfly. it does not work for everyone, but it's a little insentive to make someone stop

    Well there is a lot of help out there, you have to find the right kind of help for you. Mine was my college counselor, talking about my feelings really helped, and when I felt the urges a few years later I went back to her and had EMDR treatment. It was a big help. But we are all different so get as much information and advice as possible, and don't worry if some doesn't work try as many as you need to find the right help.

    As for worrying about self harming again, just remember that if you do you're not the only one. ;) We all slip up from time to time.
