Welcome to RYL'S baby sister site. We also run happy_box, siawareness and rylthealbum, so make sure to visit them too.

Recoveryourlife (formerly Ruinyourlife) is a non-judgmental self harm support site. This community is for members of the site and anyone who needs support with self injury issues.

There is never any pressure or obligation here. You are free to take as much or as little part in the community, whatever feels right for you at any given time. All we ask is that you follow a code of conduct, which is just for member's safety. Thank you.

Code of Conduct

*No direct encouragement of self harm

*Anything which may be triggering must be put behind a cut tag (how ironic) with a trig warning. [lj-cut text="____"]....[/lj-cut] (replace [&] with <&>)

*Extremely long posts must also be out behind a cut tag

*Please respect other members. No flaming will be tolerated whatsoever.

*This is a support site, so try to make sure no post goes unanswered.

*No suicide notes, but asking for help when feeling suicidal is fine.

*Everything else goes. Above all, take care and stay safe.

Many thanks, your maintainers dancintrulife, elsh, grlinterupted and plataduckie
