I have a confession to make. I keep overdosing, not with the intention of killing myself, but in order to make whatever is happening at the time stop so I can pass out. This is known as a method of self harm. It’s my only grip right now on life, and it is costing me time and energy from my positive and healthy activities.
Sadly, I feel both better and worse for it, but this does not mean I condone the behaviour. I’m going to ask for a 1:1 with our DBT counsellor in order to try and address this issue, so I know which pages I need to look at in our textbook, and so I know what I should try and do in order to not do this. Sadly enough though, for me, it works. It always works.
