I am so happy that you have no intention of any more self injury. I think that what they are concerned about
is going into detail about
it, we have children as young as thirteen that read the forum and I think that is the worry. They are so impressional. Not that they don't do it already, we just don't want to have them read about
it. So we just wont go into any detail.
I think if your gut feeling is that the counselor can help you, that means you are comfortable with her and that is so important. I hope that she can get your insurance to cover. That happened to me at one point and my insurance did cover the one that I wanted to see. I think that in your case it is important for you to see who you are most comfortable with. But unfortunately I have no say in the matter. I wish that I did... Just for your sake.
I had a friend that did the same as you did, she once told me that when she did it, she would laugh. So in my mind, she was feeling an emotion. I think that is why she did it. She has stopped now with counseling and medications.
My sister is a thrill seeker, the doctor told her to try sky diving of all things, she was searching for an adrenaline rush. Though she never attempted the sky diving. Some of us are just that way. I wish that you could find something to give you that feeling that you so badly crave. I know that it is hard for you, but you seem to have this under control at the moment. I am happy for that.
If you want to talk in more depth, email me. I will be happy to share what I know about
it and listen to what you need to say. I have more experience than I am allowed to write about
