Managing triggers on social media

I was just scrolling through Facebook and this person I don't really talk to shared a photo of some seriously graphic self harm and made a joke about it. I can't believe what I just saw. I feel so sick and it's just like holy shit. And the image in my head won't go away and I haven't done that for so long but it feels like something I might do.

@j95, I'm really worried about you, that image sounds really overwhelming for you.. have you harmed yourself in any way, or are you thinking of harming yourself?

@j95, your being so hard on yourself tonight.

it sounds like you're really struggling at the moment and I'm really concerned about you. Can you tell me if you're able to keep yourself safe even though your having these thoughts?
