Self Harm

Recommended Posts

I understand completely @Tika it feels like that a lot for me, but I also have other triggers, like feeling I need to be punished, Or as I've said, It's a manifistation of the scares on my mind. It is an evil thing and getting help and talking about is the best way to help stop. I am on the beginning of my healing journey and I will gladly take anyone willing to join me along for the ride.

I'll be happy to join you, I'm not sure where I'm at on my own ride, somewhere in the middle maybe.  Some days I think I'm good, some days I fight to function on the inside.  Almost every day no one sees any of it.  ~hugs @Aliea~ but one thing I learned a long time ago about the people here is you're never alone  (even if I haven't reached out to any of them in a very long time)

This is so true. I have had such a hard time making friends in RL yet as soon as @hirondelletold me this place was back i felt like I belonged somewhere again and this is where my friends live :)

As for the constant battle, this is why mental health is so stigmatized, because it is an internal fight and only we see it. All we can do is try to talk about it, to get out as best we can what we are fighting.  It is exhausting in so many ways but we keep fighting and that is what counts.

We will work together hun and we will come out the other side changed but stronger for everything we have gone through x x

@Tika and @Aliea when you two need it I am sure that your NL friends will be here in a close knit circle to stand within and receive our unconditional all accepting love.

I will not promise that I won't nip either of you or whoever else needs the help but that's for my own therapy. See? :)

Today is a bad day that will only get worse as the day comes to an end and the kids go to bed and I'm by myself.  October has always been my favorite month, it's fall (my favorite season), it's my birthday at the end of the month, it's Halloween.  But it's tainted right now because this month it's been a year since he moved out.  The 6 months he originally promised to come home is long gone.  And I told myself and him I wouldn't put myself through this for more than a year...  And the thought of ending it kills me, but the thought of staying in this limbo hell kills me too...

@Tika you sound exactly like me when I just know what the day is going to be like and no amount of talking or distraction helps. However, I will give you an option to talk to someone who knows what it is like. I will PM u my details and you can either call me or facebook msg me or snap chat or just talk on here. Our circumstances may be different but from what I have read our reactions are the same and I feel it's good to talk to someone who completely gets it. Take care lovely and no pressure what so ever I am just opening that door for you x x

~hugs~ thank you :x

I think part of it for me too with my situation right now is the lack of control I have over things right now.  But I can control causing myself pain.

I didn't do anything tonight.  I really wanted to go take a bath and shave my legs but I realised that probably wasn't a good idea.  I snapped at my kids for no real reason (although I apologised and tried to explain why to them) it still makes me feel like shit because I know my emotions make me a bitch sometimes.  I wound up just going to bed.  But now it's 2 am and I'm awake again.

Damn that last post was so insignificant and it paved a way for so much more and much worse.

I now have so pretty hefty scars or at least they are to me.

Anyways, I stopped again, yay, started a whole new thing with butterflies and such (if u follow me in Instagram you will have seen :) ) it helps a lot.

But then two days ago I scratched myself...doesn't sound like much right? Well I think most scratches fade after a few hours, these took two days to fade. I have never done that before, it hurt more funnily enough, stung through put the day and it was a lot more noticeable than a simple cut. 

The trigger behind it was complicated. A rush of emotion, hate, guilt, self doubt, anger, confusion basically all the negatives over something that was not my doing but was made out to be. 

"I am not responsible for other ppls reactions."

This is something I struggle with, something I find hard to believe. But I know it's true and I try hard to build on it and remember it as much as possible when I feel like I have cause others to act the way they do.

Well I'm rambling but yeah. Back to day one, well now on day three of being free, let's see how long this one lasts.

I like the butterflies @Aliea.  Yes, you are not responsible for other peoples reactions.  Whatever is going on with other people is their story and not yours.

      A few of you have asked about The Underworld. It was, is and always will be the most precious RP I have wasted my time in. It was created in PI and I dragged it around to every fantasy themed discussion board I joined, or helped run ever since.  However I won't be starting it here... I chatted with Kim and we felt it was appropriate to share why.
       
      Our beloved friend Bob Forsythe passed away on July 25 2012.  He played Ogre in the Underworld and although he no longer posted often when he did is was a little bit of wonderful. 
      Ogre loved two things: Guinness and women.  He really did love all of us, but one Underworldly woman had a special place in his heart (and on his lap) and that was our Vyxen.  When, a year after the Bob's death, we decided to close The Northlands, neither Kim or I had posted much in there for a while; and yet it was - to both of us - the place where he was.  We could feel his spirit in the space and we didn't want to leave him, but we knew we couldn't bring him any further. So we decided to leave him there as our eternal guardian - and, perhaps inevitably, Vyxen chose to remain with him.
      So on July 25th 2013 - exactly one year after Bob passed away Hirondelle sealed Vyxen and Ogre in The Underworld together and removed all access and then a day later we closed the board completely.  The Underworld can never be retrieved - we can access it in our hearts and minds but it will never exist digitally, and new stories cannot be shaped there (though if you buy us a Guinness I am sure we could be convinced to tell you some old ones). So as far is this world is concerned there is no Underworld and no Vyxen (though we are fortunate enough to have a lovely @fox who is very like her).  
      The Underworld is not gone, It exists beyond our reach and I am sure a beautiful story is being written there... but it is a private love story and one we will never get to read.  
      We love you Ogre, rest well Bob.
