Just wanted to say thank you. I’ve been struggling with trauma group that led me to self harm my arms and throat the other day. I didn’t go into details with the psychologist but asked her to call me and she called back about 4:30 and we spoke of OCD and self harm. I said I had experienced an increase. She said with trauma often there’s a need for protection / safety (ocd) and punishment or getting emotions out (self harm). She said no wonder due to pregnant and trauma group that those may have increased. She is going to print a list for me of ways to help with self harm by replacing with something else. She made it all seem casual and I thanked her for talking to me and calling - wished her a happy weekend and that I’d see her Wednesday.
I had you all in my mind today and it helped me reach out and be as open as I could
