    Have you tried talking to friends? Take a walk? Go shopping? Just an idea you could try to go out get some air. If you're comfortable try getting professional help reach out. I know that talking about it with a therapist and even letting it out can help you feel better like unbottling your feelings. If you wanna talk I'm here for you message me anytime. Self injury is quite worrying please if you need anything I'm available to message.

    Mindfulness can be really really helpful. The more you do it the easier it will get to do. Also, I find this app called Calm Harm really beneficial. It gives you a lot of ideas on things to do depending on what feeling you need/are dealing with. SH can be addicting. But you got this. One day at a time, moment by moment. Always keep fighting.
