Unhappy i don't know what to do any more - June 30th 2015, 02:23 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.

So I was at church last weekend and the deacon was speaking about this girl who had recently died. but while he was talking i had this feeling in my stomach like something was eating me from the inside out. I've been self harming for 3 to 4 years now, i started after i had gotten a double concussion and when the headaches never go away. i just kept staring at my arms and thighs the whole time he was talking like they were bleeding. i have urges very often and strange thoughts like i'd like to be in a car crash or something. i don't know how to control the headaches anymore, medicine doesn't help like the doctors think it would. i jut dont have anymore life in me to fight the pain so i just let the headaches rule my life. If anyone has any ideas for helping with the pain suggestion would be great

Hey,

I am so sorry to hear about what you are going through!

Unfortunately I am not a medical professional so I can't tell you how to manage the pain, but perhaps you can go back to the doctor and let them know that the medications that you are on currently aren't helping you and ask if there is anything else that they can suggest. Maybe you can also look into alternative medicine such as going to see a chiropractor. But again, I am not a medical professional so I can't say for sure what will help.

But remember that fighting the pain with pain isn't going to help. Instead it is only going to make things worse. The problems come back in the end, and then you also have to worry about things like infection or people you don't want knowing finding out. These are some alternatives to self harm that you may want to consider trying, because they are healthier and safer ways to cope.

Try and find ways to express your emotions such as writing, art, or music. That way everything isn't pent up inside. Also find ways to take care of yourself, such as by taking a warm bath or shower then curling up with a good book or movie, doing your hair, eating your favorite goodies, or painting your nails. You deserve it!

I think it may be really beneficial for you to see a therapist about this. I think that because they may be able to help you cope with the emotional aspects of dealing with the pain as well as give you ways to cope in general and solve some of your problems. You don't deserve to go through this alone and a therapist is an amazing person to get support from!

I know you can do this!

-Dez
