I just want some support - February 18th 2010, 10:11 PM

I've been feeling really low lately, I've been trying to get out with my friends more and to do things that I used to enjoy, but it's not working. My councillor keeps trying to get me to talk about my past abuse, but I don't want to talk about it. I don't feel as though it is relevant to my life now. It's not causing me huge problems so I would rather leave it alone. I want to cut so bad, but I feel guilty coz me and a couple of my flatmates watched a film in my room and I only had short sleeves on and they both saw. I saw them looking. One of them already knew, but I'm scared of what the other one will think. If I was dead, none of this would matter. I want to be dead. Can anyone help me?

Hahaha i gave up. i cut. I'm a piece of shit.

Dont even kill yourself. Dont worry about what people think, Ive got permanent scars running up my arms, people dont even notice, you'd be surprised. And mostly if they do they dont care, because they dont understand, so you dont have to worry anyway. And if people do say something its because they want to help. Its not something to be ashamed of. We are trying to help ourselves, its a very serious thing but we are surviving, I think of them as battle scars, Im pretty much proud of mine "I went through depression, Ive crawled out of it on my own, Im strong"

It seems like you are in depression. Now of course I am not a doctor, so you should definitely see a doctor, or a psychologist. Past issues do matter, friend. Post-traumatic disorder do appear later after a traumatic events and it can bring down anyone. From what I read from here, maybe the past abuse you spoke off could be causing the issues you are dealing with now.

Either way, please don't kill yourself. It isn't a solution, and your death will hurt many people around you enormously, even if you believe no one cares. The fact is, they care. There are many people here who SH before certainly could help you out with the issue of cutting.

Please, hang in there. Let me know if you need anything.
