Its so hard. - January 21st 2009, 01:33 PM

I've been self harming for so long now. Alternatives don't work. I've tried everything.
I've self harmed everywhere, covered in scars. And last night I went crazy.
I was so angry, so upset. And I had to punish myself.
So I kinda shredded my right arm both sides... I know thats not good.
But I feel i must punish myself. I really cannot seem to stop.
And I can never feel the pain either so i don't know how much i've done until the next day unfortunately.
I'm not sure what to do.... am I silly for doing this?

Hey,
Your definitely not silly for doing this. Your obviously going through a lot right now and sometimes self harm can seem like the only escape. Is there anyone you can talk to about this? Having another outlet for your feelings can really help you cope. I think you have to challenge these feelings of needing to punish yourself, it can seem hard but if you keep on trying I'm sure you will be able to do this. I've felt the same about alternatives but if you persevere then I think you can find one that works for you. If you ever need someone to talk to you can always PM me, always. :hugs:

Thank you. And I do just feel like giving up completely. Today i've come so close, and i'm not afraid anymore.

Don't give up, it's not worth it I know it feels like life isn't worth it but giving up is even less worth it. You can do this and you're incredibly brave for carrying on trying. Maybe trying to talk about how you got to this point can help you, but whatever you do, hang in there.

Talking just makes me feel worse. so I guess staying quiet is better for me.

Maybe for now, but I hope you know when you're ready to talk, there's plenty of people ready to listen.

There will come a point where talking isn't so painful.

You're not silly at all for doing this.
I was in an extremely similar situation a few months ago: self harming for years constantly all over my body.

You just have to hold on, it may be difficult, but it's worth it in the end.

PM if you need to chat about it.

Please, don't give up. You are worth so much! If you ever need to talk, I'm here. I'm told i'm a pretty good distraction from hurting oneself.


You are beautiful just the way you are.

Don't listen to what people say.
They don't know the real you, anyways.
