Recovery isn't often a straight road. You may have moments of recurrence. But I think seven months of no cutting is a tremendous feat and something you should be proud of, see if you can't improve on that. You're doing a really good job.

i didnt stop ant think how it affected my gf, i think she might leave me, im broken now and i dont know if i could keep going after that

Often with mental illness thinking about how it affects other people takes a back seat when you're just so caught up in a negative cycle. But it's not fault of our own. 

I'm not going to tart it up for you, seeing a loved one cut - or anything negative towards themselves - is a painful experience, and sometimes that person just can't take it anymore. But I think of your girlfriend is worth anything she'll be able to put this into perspective and see that you've done a really good job these past seven months, keeping away from cutting. There might initially be anger but hopefully she'll be able to see that this is no doubt a massive improvement from how it used to be.

Thanks :) I really hope she sees it that way

Asho, I'm sorry, mostly for how it's making you feel. Please try not to hate yourself.

Slipping happens, you're not alone. You're taking care of the wound, right?
