    Do you plan times when you can SI?


    • I was wondering if anyone else plans when they can self injure. Yes, obviously sometimes its a impulse thing, but are there ever times when you know you want to, but its not super strong feeling, just a slight urge, and you think “Okay, I can do it during so-in-so times.” I do this because I’m a very busy person, and can’t just do it whenever. My family is very observant, so I have to wait for moments alone when I know NO ONE will see me, or interrupt me. Any one else do this to?

    Definitely. I do not feeling that I could risk anyone knowing about my SI at this time(especially the cutting ) so I sometimes have to wait more than a week to do it, all while fighting the constant need to cut...

    Right now I feel like I'm waiting until Sunday.  But sometimes the time will come and then I just don't care.  I suppose I should look at that as a good thing.

    I plan my SI all the time actually. When the urge to cut myself begins to appear, I can somehow control it, waiting for the perfect moment to do it. Usually it's when my dad is working the whole afternoon so I can be alone and do what I want, meaning listening to music,, drinkink, feeling sad and then cutting.

    I don't plan my cuts because I don't want anyone to notice it (they already know) but yeah, for me it's some sort of ritual that has to be meticulously prepared.

    Yeah, I mostly cut in the shower so I can never get caught. the shower disposes of all the evidence. no bloody gauze or fingers because of the water. plus no one would walk in on me.
