I tend to be an emotional sponge as well. Now that I have a working tape player, I'm going to try to listen to my tape on mental shielding again. I already do some visualization on blocking the unhealthy emotions from others, but it's hard work.

If you can possibly set up boundaries with this person, it might be healthier to do that. It's harder, but not impossible, to do it with family. I used to be very very close to my parents, but it just wasn't healthy for me. I have now cut down on contact with them significantly. I have also told my father that if he yells at me or threatens to kill anyone or anything like that, I'll just hang up or leave. And I do it. I do the same with my mother and her dramatics.

For me, the self injury urges comes from feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, mixed with anxiety or anger. Anything that empowers me reduces the self injury urges.

Unfortunately, there are still situations and people with whom I just can't seem to manage that. :(

Congratulations on not acting on the urges!
