My self harm.

TW covering topics of self harm.
I self harm. I have before, and i did stop for a while. Until recently. I felt the urge to one night and my knife was too dull and i saw a lighter.. i burned myself. And i really liked it. And now i cant stop and im scared of falling into this deep deep hole i fought so hard to dig myself out of. I feel like i need to burn every second of every day and its so scary
I guess, this all starts with the disturbed/distracted mind. You becomes so distracted that it start to make you uneasy. And to get rid of the feeling of uneasiness you start to adopt to any means that can bring back your concentration (even if it is for a while) and make you feel good and oriented. As other means are now not working for you, so any physical injury with sharp pain brings stops your distracted mind for a while and you feels good in that moment.

Solution is a difficult one, taking you from distracted mind to a concentrated mind.
Its about unwavering your focus.

All the Best !!

The thought of hurting myself purposely is so completely foreign to me I simply can not relate to it at all.
Try to remember the lessons of your previous therapy is all I got.
good luck.
