Being Accountable...

Postby AmandaBroken » Tue Mar 07, 2017 12:08 am

I want to try something. I want to be held accountable. Every day I will post here and report if I have been safe or not.

Today is day one. I have been good. No S.I. of any sort. I had thoughts but I beat them. I will continue to beat them.

Day Two...

It was a good day. I did not hurt myself today. I had passing thoughts but took no action.

All big adventures start with small steps.

I'm just 2 hours from the end of day 3.

I did not cut today although I struggled with thoughts. I did 20 laps of swimming today at school and ran for 4 miles to keep distracted.

Why I need to be held accountable.

I believe I have shared with everyone that I am in college doing a double major. I will in May graduate with a Bachelor's degree in both History and Psychology. The History degree was easy. The Psychology proved more challenging.

In June I start work on my Master's degree. Again, I'm doing a double major. I will pursue a Master's degree in History and Counseling. The History degree is going to be easy compared to the Counseling degree. The Counseling degree also requires 2,000 hours of supervised counseling. I posted elsewhere that it was 400 hours I was very wrong.

I won't be able to start counseling until I go 6 months without any self-harm. No cutting, no nothing. I am asking everyone here to support me, hold me accountable, and give me lots of hugs.

Thank you, everyone, here at Psych Forums for being so very kind to me. I love this place. It has been a pearl of great price.

Day 4, no S.I. and no thoughts of S.I.

Maybe the new girlfriend is helping.

Day Five. I did not cut today. But I wanted too. I'm still struggling with thoughts. But I'm not alone and I am safe. I'm thankful again for my sister and Anna who had her first experience with a panic/anxiety attack. Me in all my ugliness.
