I’ve started biting my arms a lot again. I’m working on doing a gentle kiss instead, a technique I learnt last year during my habit reversal therapy. But because this won’t work immediately I’ve also bought some arm protectors online. Like my helmet, these are things rugby players use. They arrived this morning and they’re wicked. The padding looks a bit like honeycomb and it gives when I bite it so it doesn’t hurt my teeth.
I went into Poppy’s room and showed them to her. I said, “Look I’m like a Ninja.” I then banged my arm against her doorframe and bit myself. She smiled and said, “I haven’t seen many Ninja’s do that!”
