Should I just give up? - September 1st 2012, 01:55 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I don't know why I'm posting this, and I'm not really sure what to say, but I've seriously had enough. I can't take this anymore. The depression has gotten better at times, but ultimately it keeps getting worse. I don't think I can do this. I'm not strong. I've started masking my emotions again-pretending I'm happy because no one cares when I'm not. Being honest with a few people I trusted only made everything worse. The urges to hurt myself are back again, although I've been trying to avoid doing that. I wish I could though; it's the only thing that helps now. I want to run away but I've got nowhere to run, and I'd probably just be found anyway. I feel so trapped. Everything seems so pointless. I just don't know what to do anymore.

I'm no help to you, but I have to say I can identify exactly with you. Talking to people doesn't help even if they are supportive and nonjudgmental, and although the depression gets better for a bit sometimes, ultimately it's all going downhill and I see no future for myself and I don't believe I'll ever be better/normal

You are strong. you are stronger than you will ever know, you have helped me with so much! I can understand the depression getting worse, it happens all too often. I care, you can always talk to me, and I know that's a little more difficult since school started up but I am here if you need me. When you get the urges to SH you have to try your best to use any positive distraction you have available. And I know what it feels like to have SH be the only thing that makes you feel better, but that feeling doesn't last and it is often replaced by shame. I hope this helped a little.

Stay strong!!!!!

Maybe talking about the things that are making you feel this hopeless, might help. I am a great listener and have been through nearly every bad thing imaginable. My email address is novakief@gmail.com. I can be reached there with ease.

Thanks... I don't know what I would do without you guys; I just wish a few people I see all the time would care too, you know? I hate feeling as if I don't belong, and it certainly doesn't help that my parents have been lying to me. Yet whatever I do is always wrong. I don't know; I just wish I could give up on trying. That's all I've done my entire life and I've gotten nowhere. No one understands. They know I've been in pain and they don't care at all. It's too hard.

Yes, I do know. You want the people that are close to you to acknowledge that you are in pain, and you want to hear them say that they are there for you.

Depression and self harm arent easy things to go through and I think your really brave sharing your feelings. Trying to stop self harming is like giving up an addiction like drinking, it's hard to do and there maybe times when the urges come back when your feeling overwhelmed and there maybe times when you relapse. You can choice to stop hurting yourself and find other ways of coping when your feeling overwhelmed by everything and having a good support system around you is really key in beating depression and self harm. You have great friends here but have you thought about counselling? having a great counsellor one that your trust and feel comfortable around can really help you turn your life around, and beat that depression. I am here if you need to chat anytime. take care

Karley: I can't really believe that right now, but thank you. As of right now, I'm not going anywhere though.
Nicole: Okay, you're dead on... Part of the reason I want to run away is because none of the people I see would care. Maybe they would notice. Maybe they'd wonder and talk about it for a day. But that's it. They'd just forget about it and it'd be like I never existed.
Chantel: I've been trying to stop self-harming, but when everything is wrong, it's so hard not to because that's the only thing that helps. Yeah, I can usually prevent myself from giving in to the urges but it usually just makes me feel worse. And I appreciate the advice, but counselling is out of the option for me.
