Yes. Every time, as soon as I am done hurting myself, I wish I could stop. I wish I would stop. And I try to stop. And I will be fine for a few days, but the desire to hurt myself just gets stonger and stronger untill I can’t resist. Then I give in, and feel good for about 5 minutes. Untill I start wishing I could stop again. And I start the process all over.
