in my efforts to stop self harming, i have opened up to people close to me. but if i have done it since they are frustrated because they think i can control it and make the decision not to self harm. whilst i know this is possible and my long term solution, i tried to explain it like when you feel sick and have to throw up - you have no control of that situation, and in the moment of self harm it feels like i have no control of the situation. is there a better way of explaining it?
