Anxiety & Impulse control May Trigger

Hi Everyone,


I've been lurking lately. I'm not exactly sure why. I just don't feel like I have anything to add to what you guys have already said on most threads.

I haven't been leaving the house since my release from the hospital last month. If I go to the store or a Doctor's appointment it's a big deal for me. I've been sleeping A LOT (like 15-18 hours/day).

So tonight I'm super anxious. Even after my klonopin. I've been wondering lately if my whole issue isn't just impulse control. When I've been down this week, I keep looking at the razor or my wrists. I've been able to control it, but tonight, I don't know if I will. I am pretty impulsive & maybe that's what I need to fix. I know that my S attempts were impulsive acts. I know my cutting is impulsive. I know I become more impulsive the more anxious I get.

I don't know why I'm telling you guys this. I guess I just needed to tell someone what's going on in my head.
