Hello,

well first of all welcome to TH since I noticed that you're new here . Hope you find everything you're looking for and more around here. It really is a great place to be.

Need and want are too totally different things. You may feel as though you need to cut but at the same time you mentioned that you are scared to do so which tells me that you don't want to cut either. Self harm is never the answer. There is a handy list of alternatives thread that can help you get through this though if you'd like to check it out.

http://forums.teenhelp.org/f12-self-...ves-self-harm/

Find something whether its on the alternatives list or something you normally enjoy doing. Anything on the list to distract yourself for the time being. Also..if you'd like to chat my inbox is always open and there are a variety of other ways to find help on the site...another important question to ask yourself if why you feel as though you need to cut. What's causing you to feel this way right now?

<3 Take Care,
Becca

i dont know, i accidentally cut myself earlier and i just saw a lil bit of blood and it kind of made me think. it hurts its bad. i dnt want to do it. but something about it is really intriguing.

i try to be a happy person and i kinda try not to think why i try to be happy all the time.

hi,
you need to cut because you think that physical pain can ease up psychological pain.......well, it does not , instead, each time you will blame your self and feel bad for cutting your self and you will remember the cut and the reason that caused you to cut every time you see it , so you feel more pain instead of less.
the fact that you can stop now means you are strong enough and have control, keep doing the good job and hopefully you wont need that blade again.


If ur at the bottom then cheer it only can go better
If you are lonely then smile
You do not need them to stay alive
If they hurt you bad ,been hurt worst and every thing is just pushing u down...
And even though you are strong enough to survive


p.m me.........I quite like it

Hey-

Situations like this are extremely hard. I'm sorry you're dealing with this. Did you end up cutting yourself? If you did, that's okay. It happens. If you didn't, that's amazing.

Check out the Alternatives to Self Harm thread that's stickied at the top of this forum. If you can't find it, let me know. I'd be more than happy to link you. If you do at least 5 of those, for at least 10 minutes a peice, you have at least 50min more self harm free. And sometimes you really do have to take it minute by minute.

If you need someone to talk to, feel free to PM me.
Maria.
