Rage against the wall

Rage against the wall

The pain causing self-injury is immense.  I wish I could fix it, but I can’t.  We can work through it though.  We have to.

    • Hi Ivory,

      Thank you for the validation…

      This set was to be an acknowledgment of a friends pain; but it morphed into something else. It became about expressing the reasons behind self-injury…

      Take care,

  1. I’m sorry for your pain, too. You can work through it, I know you can. You better or I’ll come over there and injure you myself. Hmph.

    I’m around if you want to chat. ((hugs))

  2. I’m glad you’re better today.
    That picture is very alive. I hope that word makes sense. There’s a lot of emotion there and I’m glad you posted it. It’s incredible. And it pictures the pain surrounding self-injury very, very well. Some in my system related to the picture very much. I’m really sorry that you’re hurting though. I know lack of sleep doesn’t help things. Try to take care of yourself today ok? Is there anything soothing that you can do that’s safe?

    • Hi tai,

      Yes, the word “alive” makes perfect sense.

      It’s always double edged when people identify with work that is filled with pain… there’s validation for both people, but also sadness that someone else is going through a similar pain.

      I’m thinking of going to the zoo today, but I’m not sure if I can handle the crowds. I might go for a walk around the gardens instead…

      Take care,

  3. Intense image, and also intense choice of music. Yes, the pain of self-injury is immense. I know others have made it through and don’t self-injure anymore. I hope that for the rest of us.
