Hi everyone I need your help!I need to find a alternative to sh and not because I want to but because of more intense reasons but I have tried so muchSnapping rubber band on wristPinching selfDrawing with red marker Holding iceSucking ice Eating sour or sweet sucking candiesSqueezing stress ballsPunching non harmful objects Cold showerExercise Listen to happy musicListen to funny podcast Watch uplifting showCall friends Text friends And nothing is working anyone have any other ideas?
Honestly your list is everything I’ve tried myself and all I really know of too but something that I used to do that helped at times was talk to myself. Weird, I know, but I’d just spout out anything I was thinking without filter or instead try and reassure myself. I’d hum and squeeze my thighs too as I got louder, very strange things but they stimulated me for some reason and I could try and clear my head with it or distract myself vocally
Really hope that helps in any way, I know everyone is different with what works and what doesn’t, but at least you are trying and that’s all that matters 💕
If it is safe enough for you to do, I like to draw on pieces of paper and then cut it up so I still get that feeling of relief but without getting hurt.
It doesn't really help me as much as it use to, but what I use to do is I would draw my wrist or wherever I wanted to sh, and I would draw with red marker or I would cut it up with a pair of scissors. It might not be helpful to u, but I do suggest trying it
