Everything has turned around-and for the better!

Hey guys!

It has been aggggesssss since my last post. But I'm really glad to announce that I have overcome..well everything!

I finished up my last session with my psychologist at headspace yesterday and do not need to go back as of yet.

Apart from that session yesterday I have had no support or anyone to talk to for over 2 months and I have been coping fine.

I have stopped self harming for about 3 months now; I haven't purged or starved myself for about that as well; maybe a bit longer. I am really proud of how well I'm doing actually...

Anyway; thanks to everyone here at Reach Out for helping me through such difficult times; you guys are awesome!

I now hope to help other people get through their tough times by taking the experience from getting through my own.

Thanks again!!

Re: Everything has turned around-and for the better!

Thank you!

I think what really helped me was realising that I can't keep doing this to myself. It's not good for my health and I found it so hard to try and hide my scars all the time.

But a few strategies I used where writing a diary and keeping track of everything; having someone to talk to; even a friend to keep myself distracted. But the one thing that helped me so much was venting. On RO, to a friend or family member, a counsellor or even yelling into my pillow or writing it all down. Letting it out makes it so much easier and you feel amazing afterwards. Well at least better than before anyway! :-)

Hey @Pillow ,

 

Wow! That sounds really, really good! I'm sure it's taken a lot of hard work to get here so a big high five and well done from me. 

 

I definitely agree that sometimes you just need to get those thoughts out of your head! Sometimes for me getting up and jumping around is enough to do it.

 

Feel free to keep posting, I'm sure lots of people would love to hear how things help you. And remember ReachOut is always here, in good and bad times Smiley Happy
