I'm done fighting these urges - September 20th 2012, 03:05 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.

I'm done fighting these urges. I can't ignore them any longer. Everytime I distract myself, it works, but like a few hours later, they're back and stronger then ever. I just want to cut myself up over, and over, and over again until the pain is gone. I've gone two months and three days without cutting myself, but honestly, with what has been happening with me these past two weeks, I think that streak is going to end very soon. I just have so much going on that I need to make it all go away. I need to feel better.

I am a self-harmer myself, but am in the process of recovery. Try your hardest not to cut. I know there is a great temptation, especially when things get rough, but there are so many other ways to cope. Try to do things you like to get your mind off things.
For example mine are- making bracelets, reading, listening to music, making a collage, journaling, taking photographs, etc.
It's so hard not to give into self-harm, but the longer you go without doing it, the easier it becomes. You just need to find an interest of activities that can get your mind off of things.

Im so sorry you've been feeling like this. I know what that feels like. I wish i could say "______ is the way to get rid of this" but theres nothing you can do to get rid of them in a second. It takes a lot of strength. And time, sadly. You will be rid of them someday. Just keep distracting yourself, im sure you have seen the sticky in the Self harm thread. Try something on there that will take a while. Try something new.
Or maybe theres someone who you could call when you get the urges? Even a hotline. They can really help.
Im always here if you need me, just a PM away.
Stay safe.

From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die
