Feeling kind of lost - September 30th 2009, 03:55 PM

Something's not right. I've been at uni since saturday. I've made a couple of friends. I've joined a couple of societies. I'm trying so hard not to isolate myself. I really am, but all I want to do is sit in my room and drink. I dont want to go to lectures. I dont want to try. I've been cutting myself so much lately. I've deeper than I ever have before. I don't know what to do. I can feel myself slipping again. I don't want to end up in hospital for suicide attempts again.

Hey there, Ella. [:

I have to say, I'm extremely proud of you for trying so hard, Ella! I know it's not easy, honestly. I understand how easy it is just to slip into isolating yourself from everybody, but you're trying so hard not to, and I think that's amazing. Be proud of yourself! You're doing so well.

Though it's not easy, I honestly think you just need to keep forcing yourself to get out and go places. It's probably no fun, but just make yourself do it anyway. You know it's for the best, Ella, so just keep on telling yourself that it's what you have to do. Isolating yourself from everybody will make you slip faster, so keep yourself around people. It'll help you a lot in the long run, even if it doesn't feel like that right now.

Have you thought about stopping your Self Harm, Ella? I know it's a coping mechanism, and I know it's addictive, but let's be honest, it doesn't help anybody, not in the long run. It's not easy to resist, but try to fight the urge to hurt yourself. You've just said you don't want to end up in hospital, I don't want you to end up there either, so make sure that doesn't happen! I'm sure you've already seen it, but just in case, here's our Alternatives thread. Just give it a try, yeah? You can track your progress along with everybody else in this thread. It's not easy... but just think about stopping. It'll give you one less thing to stress over. You don't deserve that pain, Ella.

Perhaps you should think about reaching out to somebody near you. Friends or family, just anybody that you can lean on for some support. Perhaps the counselor at your university? You don't have to go through all this alone, Ella. There are lots of people out there willing to help, you just have to let them. Check out this thread to see who can help you when you're feeling like this.

I can see that you're trying so hard. Just keep on trying, Ella. You'll get there in the end, I promise. Just hang on, it's worth it. Stay strong, Ella. You'll be okay. [:

I've been trying for the last 3 years to stop self harming. If i manage to not cut for a while I end up doing other things without even noticing like scratching myself or pulling my hair. I'm so sick of trying and failing. I just want to die.I can't take it anymore.
