Good for you for putting this up here. We all experience pain in our lives. I can assure you that the person who you say doesn't care about you isn't worth hurting yourself over. Nothing is worth hurting yourself over because it'll just make things worse in the long run. Killing yourself also won't help anything, if you've been strong enough to make it this far then you can continue staying strong. Nobody wants to have you die or hurt yourself. Stay strong because I promise you it'll be worth it. PM me if you need anything.

"Love me for me, accept the fact I'm true, live like I want, fufill my dreams,
Dream of me, run out free, capture your words and never let them go."

I'll see you on the other side.

Hey there,

I am sorry you are struggling but it will get better so please hang in there.

I was wondering if you have considered using the alternatives that are listed in this forum? The alternatives can be really helpful when it comes to stopping with the SH. I know that sometimes the alternatives may seem like they don't work but that is usually because your body has become so used to using the SH that it takes a while for it to accept the alternatives. Please don't give up on the alternatives working because they will.

I know how disappointing it can be when we try to stop cutting and then we cut but try and pick yourself up because in the end you can always try again: "If at first you don't succeed try again".

Cutting is a hard habit to overcome but you can beat it and when you do you will be so proud of yourself just don't give up.

I hope this helped.

Hey Erika,

I'm so sorry about the late reply - I hope you're okay.

Please don't hurt yourself. I'm so sorry that you hurt so much - I wish I could be there a hug and remind you that things will be okay. Even though we struggle and things can hurt a ridiculous lot sometimes, pain does subside and the "impossible" becomes the achieved. You are cared about. A lot. Especially by us.

Hang in there, Erika. Feel free to PM me anytime.

Drown in the music,
dance in the rain,
block out the thunder,
and let the scars fade.

You cannot give up on being strong - you need to keep going and live well. If one person gave you a hard time and made you believe that they didn't care about you, I guarantee you there are a hundred more who love you to pieces! Think of your friends and family; I bet even people you wouldn't expect to care about you greatly, like teachers, counselors from school, acquaintances, etc.

It sounds like you need to find the will to be strong; I understand that you feel lost, but you can find yourself again. Please, try speaking to a counselor at school at the least. I guarantee if you open yourself up just a little bit to a counselor, a friends or a parent, you will find so much love coming in your direction!

Hello Erika,

Look dear, keep your head up high. Things are bad now, but I do ensure you that things will get better, maybe not today, or tomorrow, but in the future, things will be fine.

Don't think that no one cares about you, because there are so many people who really do. If we didn't care here, no one would have responded, but look at how many have! People care about you dearly, they don't want to see you hurting.

You don't need to hurt yourself. Find alternatives, look at the sticky on the top of this forum. Try to resist from hurting yourself. It will make you feel better for a few minutes, but then you'll feel guilt afterwards, so it's definitely not worth it.

Please talk to someone, anyone, to get some help. I think you should talk to a school counsellor, or even a therapist to help sort out your feelings.

I think you are strong. Keep your head held high, I care about you, I don't want to see you get hurt. Please talk to someone. I hope this message finds you well. Please take care of yourself.
