Hi there,

It seems like your girlfriend has a lot on her plate right now with her schooling and her work so it's understandable for her to want a break. However, I'm sorry to hear that she told you that you cause her stress. You shouldn't be someone that has to be "dealt with" in my opinion. You're someone who should be loved and cherished instead. Perhaps you can tell her how that made you feel when things calm down a little bit.

I think you should take a look at the first aid thread to help you determine whether or not you need medical attention. Please take care of your wounds. Keep them clean, and watch for any signs of infection.

From what you've written, I'm assuming that this is the first time you've self-harmed? Correct me if I'm wrong. It's in your best interest to talk to someone you trust or to see a professional about this before it becomes a habit. Self-harm releases endorphins (chemicals that make you feel happier) and it can become addictive over time. Please talk to someone about this so you can receive the help and support that you deserve. If you can't talk to anyone in your life right now, take a look at this list of hotlines.

In the meantime, try to find things that help you express how you're feeling in a healthy way. Consider keeping a journal or a blog because that will give you your own personal space to release your feelings. Here is a list of self-harm alternatives that you may find helpful. The size of this list can be overwhelming, but some of these alternatives are bound to work for you. Different alternatives work for different people, so keep trying some until you find what works for you.

Hang in there.
