Welcome to my site. It used to be on Blueyonder but since I keep moving house and changing ISP it's back here on GeoCities again. Hopefully I will get round to writing some more actual content in the near future too.
At this precise moment, I've moved most of the files I had except the Christian ones. They need more work but should appear here fairly soon.
I tend to add pages to my site in a fairly haphazard manner as and when I think of them and have the time and inclination to produce them. So what I have at the moment isn't arranged in any particular manner, but here it is:
Contact details, and information about who I am, my self-injury, my faith and why I created this site.
A list of books related to self-injury or mental health, together with my reviews or at least comments on most of them.
Reasons not to self-injure
Not just a list of my own reasons, but also the results of asking 50 self-injurers about theirs.
A truly vast list of ways to stop yourself, ranging from daft distractions to deep delving. Arranged in categories so you can find what suits you best.
Thought Investigation / Thought
From I'm not supposed to feel like this, a CBT-based self-help book by Chris Williams, Ingrid Whitton and Paul Richards, these printable worksheets are a useful way to see how your beliefs and thinking are affecting your mood, and to try to change that.
Some thoughts about Suicide
Lists of practical suggestions if you are feeling suicidal, or if someone you know is or might be, together with some musings of my own on the subject of talking to doctors about suicide.
Self-injury scars: how to prevent them, reduce them, hide them or explain them.
My submission to the UK self-harm
My opinions on how attitudes and the system need to change, illustrated with anecdotes from my own experiences.
Basically a "Bill of Rights" for self-injurers, which was drawn up in 2003 and has the support of some mental health charities.
Arranged in categories, but still a fairly unexciting page I'm afraid.
Poem-type things I have written. No reason why anyone should want to read them, but if you do, here they are.
These are compilations I have created specially to listen to when I'm feeling down. I just put them on my website to give you some ideas.
Self-injury and the Bible
A list of Bible verses related to self-injury, including the passage in which Jesus heals a man who cuts himself.
Suicide and the Bible
Bible verses related to suicide.
Lots more pages are planned.
Notably the specifically Christian parts, but I also hope to write something on what depression actually feels like, create some more pages on campaigning and raising awareness, and split up my links page into more substantial information on the various topics.
