Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    It is hard to believe I haven't posted since September of 2008. Even more surprising I have not done any SH since then even though I wanted to off and on.
    I have a question for anyone who is using the board now. I recently found out one of my friends cuts too. I let her know I have been through dealing with SH for a while and offered her my support.
    The part I am baffled by is that she told me she cuts because it gives her a high. I don't understand because I have always SHed to feel normal. Do any of you get a high from it? She has a therapist and takes meds so at least I know I am not her only support with this.
    Thanks
    Sandy

    Thanks. I can really use the encouragement some days it is still hard to not revert into the old behaviors.

    It is good to 'see' a familiar face.
