how do you tell... - September 16th 2010, 01:00 AM

so attempting to adjust to living on my own, isn't going that well.
i'm miles away from home, no car, no way back and i'm stuck.
i feel completely alone and depressed.
i totally thought i was over the self-harm and suicide part of my life.
i've been self-harm free for a little over a year.
and i haven't thought about suicide in a year and a half.
it's all coming back.
every single feeling of self-harm and suicide are taking over AGAIN.
self-harm, more than suicide but they're both there.
i think i need more help controlling the s/h atm though.
and i don't know what to do.
i've been talking to one of my profs and stuff BUT i'm scared to tell him these things.
i'm pretty sure he would understand but who knows.
he's actually done more for me in the past two weeks than most people have done for me in the my whole life; so i feel like i can trust him
but i'm shy and i don't do well.
so i'll probably just text him.
but i feel like i can't tonight because we've already talked today.
and i don't know what to do.
i feel hopeless, alone, and miserable. :[

all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

Hi Sammie
Firstly I want to congratulate you on being free of self-harm for over a year and not thinking of suicide for longer. That's a really good achievement and you should be proud of yourself for being able to reach that.
You said in your thread that you need help with self-harming the most. I've included a link that you can check out if you like that suggests alternatives other then self-harming:
I've also included a link that you can look at if you want to for reasons to hold on and to keep fighting; not letting suicide win:
It's amazing that you have someone to talk to. If it helps you then keep talking to your professor because talking to someone can really help you relief some of the stress and other negative emotions you may feel.
I hope I helped. Remember to keep holding on and fighting. If there's anyone you need to talk to, you can always message me and I'll listen.
Take care.

Hey there,

The links Rihanna gave are fantastic and I really hope you look into them. They might help you in times when you are really struggling. There are a few links I wanted to give you as well. The first lists some hotlines you can call; if you are really struggling give the hotline a try. I did that once or twice and it helped me immensely.

Here is the link:


Do you like music? The next link lists a lot of songs that are inspirational etc. I know I am a huge fan of music and a number of songs on my Ipod contain these suggestions. In times of struggle I turn on those songs and just listen. Some of them make me think, some make me laugh and others make me cry. They are just what I need and maybe they will help you as well.

Here is the link:


Now, I think that going to a new place is always hard and I think you will adjust eventually until then I think that needing extra help is no problem at all. It does not make you weak or any such thing. I think talking to that professor is a good idea as well as reaching out to the psychological services at your school. While it might be scary to do I am sure it will help to not feel alone in this and I am sure that they will be able to help you through this.

If you need anything feel free to pm me.

it's just getting worse, i couldn't even make it to half of my classes because i was just too depressed. i want to leave, but i know going home isn't going to help either. it sucks because either way im screwed. and i don't know, but it sucks, i can't eat, i can't sleep, i can't go to class, i feel emotionally, spiritually and physcially sick. i have to drag myself to work and i just i don't know. i wish i could crawl into my bed and sleep forever. i can't help but want to cut, it takes the pain away, even if for a little bit. i don't care at the moment. i have hold off til tomorrow for that though, just because i have people coming up to visit me. and i'd rather not look to messed up. ugh. i really just wish i could make it stop. this sucks.

all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
