Hi, I read the article. It is extremely accurate. The only thing that was left out was the real reason for success: The patients at this point really have no other choice. Like the woman in the beginning said...It is this or death. If anyone thinks this therapy is easy, forget it. I feel a thousand times worse when I leave there and now think of suicide and cutting,instead of just cutting. Today I am trying to be creative as I already have the knife out. I thought I could melt shavings of red candles onto a rag or a towel and perhaps listen to some music. Or even put the rag on my lap with clothes on so I do not get burned. Part of the satisfaction I get from cutting is watching the bleeding. I hope this is not too close to the actual thing. Thanks for pointing out the article. terrics
