Aw Midsy. I'm so sorry.
I know you've been stressed about your gramma.

I'm sorry you are experiencing this again. Lunacie is right, a little love from a furball will help a lot.



There is a medication called naltrexone hydrochloridethat has been found to help decrease self-injury. The earliest I found literature on it is 1987 so there have been years of anecdotal evidence and studies done. It is available in the UK for various ailments so perhaps for this as well.

Re: Self harm

Mids something tangible. Try to crush ice with your hands. It's painful AF but leaves no damage to feel ashamed about later.

Hugs I hope it goes away soon x

I use to self harm...though it's been over 8 years now.

I use to run a red permanent marker across my skin really hard...and it worked surprisingly well.
I'd also put a rubberband around my wrist and snap it really hard...hurts like hell, but it too helped to keep me from adding more scars.

Re: Self harm

I think the problem is I feel bad over what poor Ebony went through and I started blaming myself again over what the scumbags did to her

What the scumbags did to Ebony was NOT your fault.
I wish your brain would accept the truth of that.

We're here. Now's the time to get the help you need. Go. Call. Promise? Robin says he wants you to pinky-claw swear. And call a crisis line if you need immediate help! -^.^-

Cats are amazing, When I cry my cat comforts me. He knows when I'm unhappy. They are amazing and have a special sense.

For what it's worth I'm thinking of you
