I did it again....... - August 21st 2018, 04:53 PM

I was SH free for over 2 months, but yesterday it was like I was possessed. I cut on my thigh and it's not that deep, but now I feel horrible and useless. I swear, I'm fucking horrible. I promised my family I wouldn't do it again, but I fucked up..... I wish it would end.....

Hey,

It is okay. You aren't horrible, and nor are you useless. People relapse. People make mistakes, but that is okay. We are all human.
One thing you may consider is what could possible have been the reason of you SH. Did you make a small mistake? Perhaps you are punishing yourself for one reason or another. But listen, you aren't alone. There are other ways to cope with mistakes, dear. And when you make a mistake, just think to yourself, "Why did I do this? Are there alternatives?"
There are alternatives, yes. Instead of SH, you can get yourself a stress ball, or listen to some calm music. And when you are SH free for a certain amount of time, reward yourself. The reward can be as simple as making your favorite meal, or buying a new song or snack. There are many people here at TeenHelp who understand how you feel, and no one will think you are a horrible person for relapsing. It happens at the worst times, but know what? The next day is a new day, which means a new you.

I am just a PM/VM away. If you ever want to talk about the reasons for SH or any problem at all, feel free to message me.


When the world drags you down, roll over and smell the roses.

For me it was easy as throwing the blade away, but then after a few months I thought, "Well gee dude, there's more blades I can just get another one." After a nice slap of reality, I threw the blade away a third time. Cutting and self harm is considered an addition, and trust me, there's billions of time where I'm like "There's another blade though!" Brushing it off may not be so easy. The rubber band method works but strat out with a hair tie. You don't want to hurt yourself, you just want to snap out of the thought. Also journaling helps with any anger or depression as well.

I hope things get better soon.
