[TRIGGER] Caution may trigger---------------------------------------------Caution----------


The other day I thought that taking pain pills was better than battling the strong urge to S-I, it didn't cause peace of mind, It caused me to wreak the car on the way home. Lately I have been having those nasty thoughts and feelings ( If you can understand I don't want to spell the word out and cause someone to trigger) thank God nobody got hurt, especially my kids. Mixing pain meds with antideppresents was not smart. So I decided to try my own style of rehad, I put my sharp objects away and dump any pain meds I had still. It's been 2 days, the upcoming day with the holidays and all will not be easy. Hope I can follow through with my new way of controlling my urges to S-I, In the mean time no more pain pills for me.

Nopoin,

I am grateful that no one was injured and I have to applaud you for fighting thru this. I am pleased to hear that you are taking action to keep you safe.

What I learned this week in therapy... Instead of distancing and disassociating... In a safe environment, allow the thoughts and emotions to come forth and allow myself to actually feel them. I had to breakdown so as to breakthrough...

You can do this!
