I'm close. I've been close. its like I see almost no reason to keep going on. I'm always in a bad mood. I cut for the first time in two months the other night. I almost decided to drown myself twice now. Never did try. But now, I feel like I'm a burden for everyone. Why am I still trying?

I am a cutter. I am quitting.
I am a trichotillomanic. I am quitting.
I am tired. But I cannot give up.

Hello Vor,
As bleak as things may seem, it is important to resist these feelings of defeat as best you can. Even with all of the things causing you to feel down, there are definitely lots of great things to look forward to, and somehow your circumstances will get better. You are not, nor have you ever been a burden to anyone. Going two months without SH was a pretty good start, and I bet you can go even longer this time. I suggest to try to think more about the things you enjoy, hopefully with positive thoughts it will help you break through this sooner. The bad feelings you are experiencing are like a barrier, it can be hard to get through, but not impossible. Try to stay strong. You can get through this.
