I’m making a distraction box

I’m still having strong urges to self harm or od, although i’ve managed not to do it as yet. Anyway, a friend suggested to me that I make myself a distraction box, full of lovely things to keep me occupied when the urges come.

So that’s my plan for today. A trip around town, mostly rooting round the charity shops as I don’t have much money. I’ve thought of a few things to go in there. Stress balls, red pen for drawing on my arms, a pack of cards, notebook and pens for drawing or writing things down, puzzle book, sudoko book, some funny postcards, the leaving cards i was given when i finished group therapy. Perhaps some glue and glitter and other craft items to play with. Some photos of people i care about. Emergency cigarette. DVD of chicago which i love.

I don’t need any excuse to go shopping so this is going to be fun!
