Tonight I realized something...

Tonight for the first time I realized I am proud to be a survivor of Self-Injury. I can proudly look at my scars and say "I went through hell and lived to tell the tale"

Is anyone else a survivor and would like to tell their story?

I was a cutter for years.  It wasn't until my husband came into the picture that i stopped doing it to myself.  I never really did it in places that I have to worry about people seeing, and I got a lot of the scars covered by tattoo.  It's not something that I talk about often, if ever.  I'm still very embarrassed  by it.  While I don't do it any more, I'm ashamed to admit that I still have the urges in high stress situations.  Thank God I haven't acted on them.  DD reminds me every day that I have to be strong for her.

Not someone who's done that, but I wanted to post and say I'm proud of you for surviving and getting past that. :
