Question Nervous Habits Hurt - April 24th 2012, 08:02 PM

Last year I had a lot of bad things happen to me including a rape. I developed a nervous habit of absentmindedly scratching myself. Most of the time it bleeds and a few times I have gotten down to bone without realizing what I am doing. I really hate doing it and it hurts for days until it heals. The other problem with it is that on the days I do it, it keeps me from cutting; but the scratches leave worse scars than my cutting did and it's easier to get away with because it's just a nervous habit. One of my best friends noticed me doing it and he tries to stop me when I do it but we go to different schools and the stress is getting to me. I want to stop but I don't realize I'm doing it. I've tried everything but I feel so lost and stressed. Please help me...?


Give me your heart and your hand and we can run!
We can run, we can run baby, run now.

Have you told anyone at your school that you do it? Maybe if you told teachers, or friends, they could tell you when you do it so that you notice before it gets too bad?
I'm sorry I can't offer any other ideas, as I've never had nervous habits so don't know how to stop them, but I hope this helps.
If you want to talk, please feel free to PM me.

Some of my friends know about it but I don't have any classes with them so they don't see me 'til after class when I already have a few holes in me. A couple teachers have tried to stop me but they have to teach and they can't always be watching me.
