I'm sorry to hear its getting worse but ur not mad ur just hurting inside and dont know how to express it in a so called "healthy way" i have never burnt myself on candle wax because to me a candle is a relaxing thing especially if its scented. Y not try and see if u can look at candles as relaxing

I drip the wax onto my wrists, not dipping in, but dripping the wax sometimes helps when I want to cut.

I haven't done it in a long time, but yeah, I used to do that, but I never saw it as an si. I just thought it looked/ felt cool. Sorry to hear things are going bad for you. Just keep writing and talking until the wave of an urge has passed.
