30 Day Self Harm Awareness Challenge: Day 12

3 Comments

Today’s prompt in the 30 Day Self Harm Awareness Challenge asks
Where do you keep your ‘tools’? (Your room, in a box, disposed of them?)

Over the years, the tools I’ve used to self-harm have been many and varied, all of which ended up being disposed of during whatever ‘no more self-harm’ period I was going through. But after each successive failure, new tools were acquired which were always – to this day – kept in a small box close to my bed.

In addition to the tools of my self-harm, I also keep a variety of medicinal supplies in this box in order to treat myself after each incident of self-harm. This way, I know the whereabouts of everything I may need at all times.

  1. For me I always kept my different tools in different hiding locations, sometimes so many I forgot where I put them. There are probably some lying around today. The majority where hidden under papers in draws and sometimes stuck in books. After some where found however, I took it upon myself to get rid of them so I could stop lying to my friends.
