Unhappy help - March 30th 2012, 11:36 PM

I'VE BEEN TRYING FOR MONTHS NOW TO STAY HARM FREE, BUT ITS A LOT HARDER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. IT SEEMS THE LONGER I STAY AWAY THE WORSE IT ENDS UP BEING IN THE LONG RUN. LAST TIME I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR 3 WEEKS. I REALLY NEED HELP.

I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through this. Something that really helped me was finding different outlets for my emotions. I spent time doing things like scrapbooking or random artsy things just to distract myself. It took time, and I'm not completely cured, but I have stayed out of the hospital and have avoided harming myself for several months. Stay strong

Hi there,

Staying self-harm free is a massive thing, and you should be really proud for attempting it. It IS really hard, I agree- it can seem impossibly hard, but I know you have the strength to do it, I just know you have. You might not want to, but have you considered telling anybody about how hard you're finding things at the minute? It can really help to have somebody's support during difficult times. However you should know, I and so many other people are here to help you and support you too. The best thing about this site is that there's always someone here who you can talk to and who can give you support and advice from experience.

Have you looked at the alternatives thread? http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/ There's some really good techniques and distractions for when you feel the urge to self harm. My favorite is the butterfly challenge. Drawing a butterfly and letting it fade naturally means you've allowed the butterfly to live. Cutting the butterfly means you've killed it. But not all the techniques work for everyone, it's about finding the one that works for you.

Good luck and I'm always here if you need someone to talk to <3

-Laura



Take as long as you need.
