some encouragement if needed - September 18th 2009, 04:50 AM

I went to a counselor/therapist the other day to get help for my cutting and other problems. I was really scared and still am but I have some friends who are supporting me and not really giving me a choice. It was really hard to do but I did it! =] I want to encourage anyone who is thinking about it to try it too. I really hope that everyone has some kind of support system, it really does help. Look around and try different people, if they arent helpful then look for it somewhere else. whatever you do, dont give up! it might not seem it but its worth it! if you ever need to talk im here if you need me.

Hey Angie,

Well done on getting help for your self harm! That is a huge and positive step to take. I know how hard it can be and how scary it is to go to a psychologist for the first time. I only got help for myself after about four years of self harm. But it is worth it to get help and I hope that you're able to recover and beat this thing

Take care.

Great job in starting to get help for your SH and such. Seriously, it takes a lot of courage and strength to do that. It's a scary thing, but I think that you'll see with time, it really isn't so bad and will help. It's wonderful you have friends who care so much about you. It's great you're also trying to encourage people to find help.

Take care. Best of luck with your recovery, it's hard but so worth it.

"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.

Oh, that is wonderful! It makes me so happy to hear that you took that scary first step and sought help. It's also really cool to think that you could be helping so many people by encouraging them to do the same, isn't it? Most people just need to hear from someone firsthand what to expect from therapy.
I'm proud of you!!
