Today is Self Injury Awareness Day

Recommended Posts

if you have an orange awareness bracelet, or an orange ribbon, or indeed anything orange, remember today is the day to wear it. ;)

I've got some orange bracelets that I'll be wearing.

I don't SI any more, but have 'slipped up' a few times with all the efexor dose changes and withdrawal. I'm going to do my best to stop SI for the whole of Lent. (which, coincidentally, starts today!)

I never cut, but I have scrached and hit myself.

I want to recover from this, and am learning to regulate my emotions more....and be compassionate towards myself.

Books on SI that I recommend -

A bright red scream

Women who hurt themselves

Healing the hurt within.
