I just self harmed after being 'clean' for like a month, and I'm terrified to tell my therapist tomorrow.
It would be best to tell your therapist. Are you physically okay?
yes I am physically fine.
good luck with therapy
I don’t think she’ll be mad. She won’t even be disappointed. She’ll probably want to investigate why, so that when you move forward you guys can work on your triggers together. That’s all it is, after all—something must have really bothered you a lot today or yesterday or last week. It’s not so much your fault as something to learn to manage better and better as time moves forward.
I did the same thing recently and had to go back into therapy. It helps to be honest with them. My therapist implemented plans for me to relay to my partner to keep me safer. As well as ways to calm down when I feel I need to do that
Same here, in the waiting room now, it'll be ok I promise
Update: My personal counseling is actually tomorrow but I have IOP today. I just texted my personal counselor and told her.
thanks for keeping us in the loop!
I did the same thing 3 weeks ago and had to get 20 stitches. But slip-ups are part of the journey to getting better and do not mean failing, like a song I love from citizen soldier "my scars are my war paint" they show all the battles you didn't succumb to and you'll beat.
