When I tell people I’m getting better, they think my urges went away. They think I realized cutting up my body was a horrible thing to do and that it was just a phase. They are so far from the truth. I still think about it, all day long. My body aches for the relief. Yes, I do realize cutting is wrong but I completely understand why I did it and I relate to others who do. Recovery means that I’m better at distracting myself. I am finding other methods to relieve the pain, even if it isn’t as satisfiying. It means I am over coming my addiction. That for once I am trying to take control. Not that it is out of my life.
