Happy Holidays to you all, too!

I'm glad your appointment went smoothly, Frostbite. This could be a sign that this new counsellor can really help you! And good for you in going! I know it can be nerve-wracking to bring yourself there at all. I've only made one appointment for my mental health and never showed up 'cause I chickened out.
Today I didn't cut, but I bruised myself pretty badly with a rubber band. It may not sound as bad as cutting but in my opinion it's still a problem, since I'm still using pain to cope. Right now I'm feeling okay, I got high to help me stay calm at a family Christmas party. Not too proud of that either, but eventually I know that I'll be feeling better and won't need drugs or self-harm to cope, I just usually get very depressed in the month between my birthday and Christmas.
