So desperate to do it - April 28th 2015, 10:15 PM

I feel the need to cut so bad. I can't stop thinking about the bad points in my life right now and I can't do anything to fix it.

Lately my mum has been spending more time with her boyfriend and his kids than me. She dismisses me when he's around, tells me she doesn't care if I starve, and tells me to f*** off.

I've tried talking to her about it but she doesn't listen to me.

I need to cut so much. I really don't know what to do

Hey sweetheart

I'm sorry you are going through such a hard time right now. Maybe you can talk to her boyfriend about it? If he doesn't listen, maybe when her boyfriend is around you can do something to distract yourself?

You said you feel the need to cut. I want you to keep in mind that, self-harm is a want, mot a need. The urges to do it tend to trick us into thinking it's a need. Also, please take it from someone who has self-harmed and still is; it's not worth it in the long run. It can be very addictive and isn't a healthy way to handle things.

I recommend taking a look at this list of alternatives to self-harm. It's helped me get through many urges to harm myself, I think it will you too. http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/

Love you, feel free to message me if you need someone to talk to
