Re: TW self harm

Hi @redhead, sounds like you're having a tough night. Smiley Sad What strategies can you use to avoid SH?

 

Just want to remind you also that you are strong and you can get through this - even if it doesn't feel like it right now. Heart

Re: TW self harm

@mrmusic I was working out in the gym. But it's just made me feel worse.

Re: TW self harm

Is working out at the gym usually a strategy that helps you with pushing through the sh thoughts @redhead? That’s frustrating that working out didn’t help this time, is there anything else that’s worked for you before?

Here to support and help brainstorm ideas if you’re unsure ❤️

Re: TW self harm

@linkinpark13 it was my usual work out. I have an exercise regime that I do 3 days a week. Everyone says it releases endorphins but I just don't feel it.
Now I'm trying to watch Netflix but the voices are being re loud.

Re: TW self harm

That so great @redhead 3 days a week! I wish I was half as dedicated as you, I can never stick with going to the gym regularly

I've heard that some people get that result, it happens sometimes for me but not so much most of the time. Usually it helps clear my head or gets me focussed just on the task at hand which can help.

What are you watching on netflix? Do you think multitasking and doing something else at the same time might help quiet the voices?

 

Re: TW self harm

@linkinpark I was watching skin wars.

I gave up on Netflix I'm walking to town now
