Hello Tiffany.
Its good to hear that you are strong enough to be able to stop self harm for a few weeks, but sad that the urges are too strong.
Whenever you get an urge you need to try and do something to take your mind off it, it can be anything really, like going for a walk, writing a poem, listening to happy music, reading a book etc.
Im sorry to hear you have been diagnosed with depression, i know how you feel with depression.. very horrible thing to have and very hard to cope with, you need as much help as you can get to get through depression, there are lots of people out there that can support you through this difficult time, we on this website are here to support you through this and we will be here for you every step of the way.
I am on live chat now if you want a chat? Im also in the chatroom.
Im not sure what time i will be online until though but hope to chat sometime Smile

Take Care
Love Beth I love you

Sorry to hear about the strong urges!
I self harm too, and i get very strong urges, i find them hard to ignore.
I just talk to people when i get them, and they just keep talking to me to take my mind off things, it works Very Happy
Hope you are ok! x
