>>Its only recently that I've thought, if I just took a razor and made a shallow cut, it would somehow let the pain out, and be the more intense pain I'm craving. This weekend was so bad, I thought about it alot. But I just got blotto drunk instead. I'm glad I'm seeing my T today.

I don't normally say this but i'm glad you got smashed instead. How'd your' appt. go? did you discuss your urge to SI with your T? PLEASE DO! Do this sooner rather than later.

I would reallly like to add a few statements to my earlier comments. Sometimes skin picking can also follow along lines of OCD. sometimes OCD alone and othertimes crossing with SI. however from the emotions you describe and why you do it i think there might be a combination of both but more weighted with SI -with even a dash of body image issues tossed in for good measure-(don't mean to make light of this).
I would like to strongly urge you fight as hard as you can to not make that first cut. Please TexasChic. I'm not sure if it's with everyone, but for me it's become an almost addictive, and it's something i turn to all too often. i mean, mostly i use it as last resort and sometimes i do it cuz it's all i can do...but I think if you can avoid that first cut...
just be very careful here i think it's a very fine line between "saving" us and pushing us down a spiraling path.

-and i wouldn't suggest using a razor, you could go quite deep real easy with one of those and you don't want to do any permanant damage, you could cut muscle or tendons or something like that.

Please, Please be careful.
My thoughts and prayers are with you TC.
Here is me sending you cyber strength to battle off that first nick.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
