I need to cut - April 14th 2015, 03:41 AM

I just feel like shit. The biting and stuff isn't working anymore. I just need to cut. Someone please just tell me I can cut...I'm so desprate

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

I don't think anyone here will give you permission to hurt yourself. That being said, though, maybe there are things you can do to lift your mood, like watching a funny movie or being in Chat?

I know you can get through this, and you will be really proud of yourself when you do. <3 I'm sorry I don't have tons to say but I'm rooting for you!

Hiya Frankie,
I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling like that. I suggest that you have a look at the alternatives thread which will help you find some distractions from your urges. Another distraction, which I isn't listed on the alternatives thread is to activate a glow stick and tell yourself that you can't self harm until the glow stick stops glowing; as it glows for several hours, the urges should have passed by the time it stops glowing.

As Dez said you could also visit the Chat Room or watch a film and you could also arrange something with friends or family, such as going to the cinema, bowling or going out for a meal.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you ever need to talk.

I'm here if anyone wants to talk, I'm always here. Feel free to VM or PM me
