Dear mamma, I think the not being alone is very important. I think that if every time I need to use the bathroom or even go to the bed room bymyself I'm at risk of hurting myself. I did, however, have a long talk with my husband about my disorder. I really expressed my feelings about why I think that I do it and why it really doesn't have anything to do with him personaly, cuz I've been doing this CSP thing since I was 6 or 7 and now I'm 44 and still do it. And he and I have only been together for 3 years. So, he should not feel like it's about him, only the anxiety that I feel from my stress of everyday. So if when I'm anxious and feel stress if we could all have a gaurdian angel on our shoulders to literally hold our hands it would be a wonderful thing. I am so glad that you have the opportunity to have a safety net like your fiance that you can call during those times of trial. CONGRATULATIONS!keep up with the not picking; I hope and pray that we can all find what we need to stop this madness that the world does not understand. It is so wonderful to know that I'm not alone with this problem, cuz for along time now I thought I was the only one out there. The mental health people and docs only think about cutters but could not phathom what we do or even begin to understand why. THANKS!
