So, this is my first time \"coming out\" about my SI. I\'ve done all the research about SI myself, and I have felt like it\'s a huge achivement. If you read my 1st journal entry it explains what I do. But, I\'ll tell you the short version. I hit/punch myself in the face, head, and thighs. I also pull my eyelashes out (trichotillomania). I\'m not sure why I do this, but i\'ve been hitting myself for about a year now. I guess all the depression and stress took a toll. I know this is something I can get over, but don\'t really know how. I\'m a new mom and have a stressful life. I probably make it like that sometimes, but in reality I realize that life can be stressful. Something that triggers my SI would probably be, when Paul and I are arguing. I\'ve researched about this and I guess I do it because I don\'t know how to handle my emotions. And it\'s just when Paul and I argue. I hope to stick to this and hope to be better soon

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
