Unhappy HELP........:'( - June 22nd 2012, 03:26 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

HELPPPP....... One of my friends just cut tonight, I mean she said it was too bad, but she still did it. I told her to talk to me to try to pass the urges away and just get distracted. I also told her that I was here for her whenever she needed to talk to or vent with.

Thing is....I'm getting triggered by her cutting herself and all. I want to tear up my arm soooo freaking badly and want to go deeper to actually make scars. Is that a bad friend of me???? I can't let her know that it is triggering me because I want to be there for her as much as I can!!

I just want to cry! I'm withdrawling!

I'm sorry that you have to go through that. Try distracting yourself with something that involves your hands. Just don't cut yourself. Please stay strong

Hey there,

I know it's hard but maybe you could try and do what you advised your friend to do. Talk to her, talk to one another about it and that way it may be easier. If she knows what you're going through and you know what she's going through then you two can be there to help each other through your difficult times, that's what friends are for! Try and distract yourself by doing something creative, read a book or maybe exercising or doing something fun to keep you distracted from cutting for a while. Maybe you could visit your friend and spend some time together? Plan something positive like a sleep over or a shopping trip. Try your best to keep yourself as distracted as possible.

If you need anything then feel free to PM me!

Take care of yourself.

Thanks everyone.....I mean I didn't last night just because I was a little worked up and all, plus everyone was home. I'm home alone right now and can't concentrate on anything else and just want to cut. I can't stop crying and I don't know why. Sorry for bothering everyone and complaining

Too late.................. Slipped a little bit ago, nothing too drastic I guess.

I am so sorry that you had to resort to cutting to get rid of your pain. Next time you have the urge to cut yourself, distract yourself.

Cathy, I tried to distract myself. All morning I've been trying to work on some work here and there, but I just couldn't get my mind off of it and all. I mean they are only just a few scrtaches here and there on my wrist, just stings. Doubt it will scar :/ Not with what I have right now, but hopefully when my other things come I will be able to make them work!
