Anonymous: I just relapsed after almost 2 months from not cutting. Now im scared I wont be able to stop. Part of me knows I want to stop more then anything and get better because I was doing so well before, but another part of me misses it I guess and that sounds terrible, but I do. I regret doing it, but I dont know how strong I am. You dont have to answer this, I just thought I needed to tell someone because nobody even knows I even started cutting. I dont know. Im stupid. Sorrry.
You’re not stupid for feeling this way. I relapsed after over 100 days of not cutting, and I wanted so badly just to give up. But relapse is a part of recovery, and just remind yourself that you were strong before and you STILL are strong. Keep telling yourself that you want to recover and that cutting isn’t worth it. Because its not; it just makes things worse and wastes time that you could be using to solve the situation that you’re in.
Since you went 2 months before, one day without it won’t seem like much. But it is, so remember to feel proud of yourself with each day, even after the relapse. And if you do relapse again, don’t feel bad. Just keep trying. Also, if you ever feel like cutting and want to distract yourself you can always talk to one of us instead.
