Exclamation Help... - May 12th 2015, 01:02 PM

I want to cut really bad again and I've been clean for about 5 weeks or so but I want to do it again just cause of all the stress and all the things people say to me and about me. My sister looks at me in disgust every time I see her just because I exist, my mum basically abuses us by yelling things at us and then crying if we yell back telling her to stop and blames us for abusing her when we don't, and my dad literally wants nothing to do with us. I know this because I read his emails between him and my mum. I can't take all this stress and I want something to help and cutting is the only thing that seems like it is going to help but I know I shouldn't so I'm stuck in this cycle of should I shouldn't I. HELP ME!!!!! I can't tell anyone cause no one I know likes me or knows me well enough for me to tell them. And the people I used to know well enough and that I did tell, basically have told me they want nothing to do with me anymore. What do I do????????

Hey,

Do you use any alternatives to help you through what you're feeling? I know it can seem like cutting is the only thing that will help you through all of this, but self-harm is not the answer. It's an unhealthy coping mechanism and you'll benefit from finding better ways to cope. Here is a list of self-harm alternatives. Different alternatives work for different people, so try some until you find what work you you!

Try to remember that each urge will eventually pass; you just have to stay distracted.

I'm sorry to hear about the grief with your parents - family strife can be incredibly upsetting. With that said, self-harming is not the route to go and will only worsen things. If possible, I would suggest reaching out to another family member or maybe a school counselor. I wish you the best with everything.

I was going to talk to the school chaplain today but he wasn't there and I felt sick from how much I want it to stop. I do try alternatives but they don't work. I cant think of anything of anything else to do don't I have looked up more alternatives as well but they don't do anything to help, they just make it worse. I'm thinking that if I still want to on Monday, I will. But if I don't then I wont. But I'm waiting till Monday.

I'm not sure I can offer many alternatives that you haven't already tried, but I do know that going for a walk or run while listening to music can help spend energy and possibly give you an outlet. I don't know if that is something you have tried, but it may be worth consideration.

I think speaking to your school chaplain when he is there is a very good idea. You shouldn't try to endure this alone and if you are comfortable going to him, that is great. All the best to you.
