Overwhelmed.

Last thing I need is to be bashed but I am sure some people will.

Needed to just vent a little bit.

Been extremely overwhelmed and it is getting hard to not turn to old coping mechanisms.
I struggle with self harm. I have since I was 7 years old. I haven't hurt myself in over a year, I have also been clean for over 2 years. I am proud of that, I really am.

I keep finding myself wanting to cut again. I have been fighting it for the past 2 months, I don't know how much longer I can fight this. Drugs are not an option, at all. I have 2 beautiful girls who are 4 years old and 4 moths old, I have a great husband too but our relationship has been under a lot of stress. One problem, we live with his crazy parents. We have been saving for our own place and found a place. Now we just have to wait till the middle of feb to move in. I look forward to that so much, I just hope things get better when we are in our own home.

I just feel so alone even though I am in a house full of people.

Could you "harm" yourself in a healthy way? Go for a run, don't come home again until you feel like you could not take another step. It's amazing how exerize can affect your mood. Congratulations on being clean and not cutting.

Don't do it. Your girls need you. The mom above me is right: can you go running? Running helps you emotionally, as well. Your girls would be horrified to see you with "boo boos."
