No More Self Hate

I scratched and wrist banged for 4 years. I never thought that I would ever stop. However after being diagnosed with Dystimic depression I was put into therapy and am now much better able to understand alternative ways of coping with the intense despair that Dystimia can bring. I was in therapy group and individual for one year. Though I am now out of therapy the urge to SM is still there. The only difference is that since getting help I know healthier ways to cope. These ways are praying, talking to my mother, writing and grabbing ice cubes fresh from the freezer. You can do it! Don't let your SM fool you, you can change. If anybody needs support or just wants to talk please contact me at Bigbeauty202001@yahoo.com Stay strong and God Bless. Love, Shawna
