30 Days Challenge: Self Harm Awareness Day 20

5 Nov

Master List

20. What is the most vivid memory you have of self harm.

I don’t really have very many vivid memories of self harm, usually when I self harm I am dissociated to some degree.  I guess the most vivid memory I have of self harming was at work one day when I was desperately stabbing my ankle with a pair of children’s “safety” scissors to relieve anxiety about a parent teacher conference later that day.  The most vivid after memory is when I completely dissociated at one point during the night and woke up with blood on me, my t-shirt, and the sheets.  I freaked out and called the therapist, because this was a time my case manager was on FMLA, and she tried to hospitalize me.  I was adamant about not going to the hospital, that I was fine now and had calmed down and I guess I was kind of rude and disrespectful but I didn’t end up getting hospitalized.
