Today I went to my first ever Write to Recovery meeting. I didn't think about the fact I would be in a group of new people until I got to the door of the building. I wondered about the people that I would meet and what they would be like. I felt welcome when I arrived and took my seat. As the room filled up with a small number of people I found myself wondering what each person struggled with in the room. They all looked "Normal". Other than my physical scars im pretty sure I looked "normal" too, but it wasn't hard to tell that I was/am a self-harmer.
We all introduced ourselves and spoke a little about our reason for being there. There was a wide range of health issues but we all came together as a group to support one another in the areas which we were worried about.
I had to leave early as I had my self-harm support worker and I really wish I didn't have to leave as I was really enjoying myself.
I also enjoyed putting in my input about the write to recovery website and hope I can help make this site better.
