Tubbydub Posted July 19, 2008 Share Posted July 19, 2008 Hey, this is my first post ever on this site. I stumbled over it while looking for some place to discuss self-injury. What brings me here? Well, there are a few reasons, and they may each deserve a separate topic, but for now I'll put it all here. I'm basically just trying to find somebody to talk to. I think that starting a discussion with somebody may help me through my current life situation. My main reason for being here is my girlfriend. We've been together for almost a year and a half now. I love her dearly, and I really think she's the love of my life. About 8 to 10 months ago, she began injuring herself. She told me about it last December. It of course hurt me deeply, and I let her know that I was here for her, but that I thought she needed professional advice. A few months ago she finally started seeing a therapist that specializes in SI. They both decided that the best course of action would be to admit herself into the SAFE Alternatives inpatient program. Today is the 4th day of her treatment. So, why do I tell you this? I just miss her very deeply. I feel both sad, upset, distressed, and anxious about her. I feel like this is all out of my hands, because really it is. I have even thought about turning to SI in the past few days just to rezlive some of the tension I'm feeling. I guess what I'm asking is what do I do now? The girl of my dreams is almost 1,000 miles away. I can only talk to her once a day, and she has to call me first. I feel out of contact and just really alone. I know this is all temporary. I know this really is the best for her, and that she's in the right place. Yet for some reason, I'm really afraid of what will happen. I'm not sure how to get through this month while she's gone.
