 What does self Harm mean to you, how do you handle it, is it an addition, some say no its not an addition I disagree,I'm a 48 year old woman whose been self harming for alot of years x for me it's an addiction and a coping mechanism, it's a very complicated mental health issues, I do know people don't know how to deal with it, even people in mental health have problems dealing with it, sometimes I feel so alone, I do know that each person that self harms does it for different reasons,all we need is for people to try and understand and not judge, and to,over us as we are normal human beings. 

Words of encouragement

  1. Healing from the inside to the outside is a long process, some people never heal they just learn to live the pain, they say that first you forgive your abuser it helps you heal, I like,even many others can not forgive there abusers and have just learnt to live with the pain,as I said the healing process is a long and hard one, if anyone has any material that would help please feel free to send it to me, weather it's poetry or art or pictures /videos , I will add them to my site x love joydevil x

I love this x

 ways to try and distract yourself 

                 finding ways to distract yourself from self Harm x there's so many ways you can try as distraction x mine is colouring in the new adult colouring books that are out, it takes your mind off the urge to self Harm it's quite a complicated as when your Colouring there's so many little bits and pieces to colour, anyway it helps me, what helps others I'd love to know and I can include them on my website x love to everyone
