Hi Bill, I had a rough weekend, but I didn't give in and SH. So I'm at 92 days right now. Looking forward til I can get to triple digits. I have to decide what to do after Pentecost. I don't want to break a promise to God. Been praying a lot. The temptation is there to give in. But I'm being strengthened from within. Thanks for your prayers, and your friendship. HUGS Kit.

I feel like I'm going to relapse. I feel it in me, like in my bones. I'm trying to hang on but I feel like it's futile.

I made it through yesterday. I still feel like I'm going to relapse. I haven't yet. I'm trying to hang on. Kit

Well done Kit!

One day, one hour, one minute at a time. 🙂

You are doing terrific!

Is this your longest time without SI?

What helped you yesterday to not SI?

Go SlumberKitty! Almost 100 days is such an accomplishment. I know you've been struggling recently but try to think of what things have helped you in the last few months and keep doing those things. I find the best thing when I want to SH is to get up and move. Go for a walk outside if you can. Sometimes removing myself from the situation until the feelings pass helps me. I know you can do this. If I can do it so can you

It's not my longest time without SH but one of the longest...I'm still doing my exercises and deep breathing and prayer (actually I exercised a bit less this week, bad weather and migraines). I'm more stressed though, work changes, financial problems, so my coping mechanisms are being overran by my emotions. I'm praying and I'm hanging on by my toenails. I just feel like a relapse is really close. I'm just trying to hang on. I see T tomorrow. Maybe she will give me some insights or something to help me not to give in. HUGS Kit

Thanks MsSunflower. I'm really trying. Exercise helps me too, I'm going to try to take a walk tomorrow because I've not exercised as much this week. And I see T tomorrow. So I'm going to try to hang in until I see T. Maybe she will give me some tools or techniques or something. Or we can work on my anxiety and feelings of failure or something that I'm dealing with and maybe I won't have to SH. HUGS Kit
