For me, I know it isn't often at all.

My question is, I believe thrash or charge upgrade can be better. Am I alone in this?
You use it in place of a Thrash, on average once every cycle, when Wither and Shock are on cooldown and you don't yet have 3 stacks of HD. It does have a slightly lower chance to proc Energize, but it doesn't make an appreciable difference in overall self-heal timing while simultaneously doing a lot more damage.
