Weighing ,Trgger

I have been weighing myself at my nutritionists office for awhile and i just recently admitted it to her and im unsure how things will turn out but i like she had to know to be honest but how could i stop doing it weighing myself anywhere there is a scale ?

I just feel hopeless with that.

Ideas

I hate plain water, so I like to put flavoring to make it easier to get water in during the day.

My Si journey

I told a nurse and she wants me to go in and get them checked it out and get a tetanus shot since i had not had one since 2009 now 2017, And she really wanted me to go in to urgent care even if i could not do a regular appt , and she also got a second opinion from the mental health staff at Park Nicollet and the mental health nurse which if she finds out what more they can do to help she will call me back the nurse .

Im super scared to get a tetanus shot she said it stings a little bit then stops but still im freaked out . And she also wanted me to give up all sharp items to my advocates so i would not be tempted to cut when i have the urges again , and if i have to keep them covered then to keep from reopening then do it .
Im not sure I have the strength to give them up yet so i don't know how i can do it without getting in very high distress. Im in way over my head and super emotional because im sick and have my period .

Hey there,
Thanks for the update, this sounds like a really tough night. Being sick and having your period can make a tough situation even more tough. Is there any self care you can do tonight to take care of yourself?
Also I just want to share the self harm hotline number: 800-366-8288.
Best wishes

Hi thanks

Yea I do have several support people and such for the SI ,but find it hard to try to communicate what I need from my supporter's and provider's and how they can help when im not so sure myself .

I could take a shower but my CTS might sting like before and at the same time it calms me down . And im listening to music and audiobooks currently and i gagged dinner since my tummy was not ready for a full meal yet and I have a beverage ordered for me.

I might watch tv as well. But once i take my sleep aids and i fall asleep in 10 mins and sleep the whole night .

Well the only reason im sick and throwing up really is due to stomach flu and fevers and dehydration and period etc and Im for the most part healed from the ED but now thats healed mostly i guess i turned to SI to control and punish myself .
