Hi all, |
In my struggle with self injury I have been looking for resources that are trans-positive and include stories from male identified people. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any. I believe the resource should be out there and I am committed to helping to create such a resource. I see self injury as a coping mechanism and my goal is to spread awareness around the issues of self injury that are inclusive of the transmasculine community.
I'm asking for personal contributions particularly from the FTM, transmasculine and genderqueer community from people who either currently deal with or in the past have dealt with self injury. Note, stories from people of all identities will be accepted. I'm interested in how people learn to stop or the struggle to stop. What has helped (or not helped) along the way. Support or lack thereof. How one describes their self injury to others (if at all). Or anything else that you wish to share.
Please submit your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org before June 1st.
