Thanks Bill. Struggling a bit with SUI feelings which I know SH would eliminate, but I'm planning on sticking with my promise, even though it's hard. Just been praying to get through this time. HUGS Kit

Lent is over but I extended my promise to not SH until Pentecost. It's still a ways away. Right after Lent was over, I was really like, what did I do? Why did I make this promise? It's all going to be too hard, too much. It's been a little easier the past couple of days. I've had some urges. My cat scratched me when I picked her up and away from the dog food (she's diabetic so I really have to watch what she eats). And that was triggering because I wanted to cut after that. And for some reason, on Sunday mornings--the last time I cut was on a Sunday morning--I get a lot of urges. But I've been sticking with it. Mostly out of stubbornness I guess. I don't want to fail. I want to keep going. I'm trying to think beyond Pentecost, which I know my T will ask me, what happens after Pentecost? I'm not sure yet. I know to continue my progress, I'll have to make another promise because that seems to be the only thing that really works.


I still have a ways to get to Pentecost, so I'm trying to not get ahead of myself. After all, I may fail before then, though I hope not. Maybe I shouldn't be framing it as success or failure. But I don't know what else to frame it as. Either I make it, or I don't. Either I succeed at my goal or I fail. I feel like I am at a cross-roads. Either to push forward and try to make this a really big life change, or continue with what I'm doing, promising for a while, then going back to it, then promising for a while, then going back to it. It's really hard to not SH at times. It's like I can't think of other things when it's really bad. It's the physical thing that has been with me my whole life other than my faith. I think I'm grieving SH a little bit today. HUGS To all, Kit

You're doing amazing SlumberKitty! You've already succeeded and I hope you can continue. If using your faith and making a promise to a higher power gives you strength then use that. Use whatever tools you have. I hope as you go forward that it will become easier (it did for me). Cheering you on!

Do you find that you turn to God more, or differently, without SH or when faced with urges to SH?

Yeah, I used to just try to deal with everything myself, which I just made a huge mess of. But going to God when I want to SH really seems to be helping. I'm not alone in this struggle. Sometimes I can see God wanting to deliver me from this so I don't spend a lifetime stuck in the ravages of SH. I'm doing a lot more faithing Him. HUGS Kit
