Exclamation Don't know what to do... - September 16th 2012, 04:01 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.

Every once in a while I go through a night where I feel like I can't take it anymore. I'm afraid to actually cut so I take a red pen and dig it into my hand or wrist in a cutting motion. I don't know if this is weird but sometimes seeing the fake scar on my hand helps me let go of some of my pain...

I have a hopeless crush and feel worthless and like nothing. I'm afraid that what I'm doing now will escalate into something else and I don't know what to do..

It's great that you are doing something other than self harm. If you afraid it'll progress perhaps find another way, another type of sensation to keep your mind of hurting yourself. For example, maybe run a feather up and down your forearm, or pushing ice on your skin, something like that.

Hope it helps, keep fighting,
Jay.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
