lost hope - April 4th 2010, 05:05 PM

Recently I want sixty two days without cutting and I just started again a couple days ago. When I was not cutting, I had friends. Now I feel like I have no one. All my friends I feel they have abandoned me. I asked a couple of my friends if they wanted to hang out and they just say "I'm busy with some other people." And it really hurts my feelings. When I see them like...for example, at a park, I'll say why couldnt i have joined you? And they'll make up an excuse saying "Oh well.....because...it would have been awkward for you since you didn't know one of my friends." That hurts my feelings even more that they lie to me.

It's like I have no reason to stop cutting because no one cares. i feel so alone. I'm looking into Mercy Ministries though. anyone been there?

I know how much it sucks when it doesn't seem like anybody cares, but i'm sure at least one person does. Have you tried talking to your friends about cutting? Or how they make you feel? If they don't want to be your "friend," maybe look for new friends! I'm sure people would love to be friends with you. You can't base the fact that you don't have any reason to not cut on people though. You have to stop for yourself, you have to stop because it's only hurting you in the long run. I know it's complicated to stop but you can do it! I believe in you!

I've never been to mercy ministries, but I've heard nothing but good things about it. I would encourage you to check further into it. I have a couple books fonded by them; there's a few on "self-harm/cutting" as well, I would look into that also!

Best Of Luck.
