I really need help. I cannot do it anymore. Im staring at the box full of SH weapons, thinking whether I should die or not. I am this close to killing myself.

For all of us who have been through self harm know how bad that urge can get. Ever heard of the fifteen minute game? Now I might be too late replying to this, but you can use it for next time. Take fifteen minutes, and do whatever mkes you happy. Watch a comedy show, take a walk, write, come on TH. By the time that fifteen minutes is over, you'll usually be occupied with something else and you'll have forgotten about self harming. Please don't even attempt suicide. Give yourself 24 hours and then go speak to someone if it gets worse. The last time I tried to kill myself was 18 days ago. If you killed yourself, I'd wonder what I could have done to help you, let us all help you. Hang in there <3

Hey, DeDe. I'm Kayla and I'd like to say, I've been where you are. It's torture and it's a crippling urge. But there's always hope. Always. I was in a place about 6 months ago of complete and total despair and pain and guilt and I just wanted all of it to end. It was completely unbearable. I understand what you're going through and I'd like to help you.

I hope that you will feel free to PM me anytime, and I will reply asap and I will be there for you and help you as much as possible through this. You CAN win this fight. If I could, you can too.


So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."

What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?
