Exclamation i did it again....why does this have to happen to me? - January 21st 2010, 06:16 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

i hate my life!!! today my mom started bitching about the bathroom remodel and she started yelling at me for making doing something wrong. so tonight after dinner i went to room and shut the door and went to closet and cut myself. i went overboard, with the razor and now my left arm really hurts, i just went overboard with my razor again. for me things are falling apart, and i almost cried tonight. why does cutting have to affect me? why can't i stop? when will my life end? i really want to stop, but i can't go more than 2 days without cutting myself. and can't get myself to tell an adult about my problems. i'm going to get a friend to tell my youth leader for me so that she can help me maybe even two friends. or three. i really want to stop, or i'm afraid i'm just going to end up killing myself one night.

Last day I cut: 7-13-2010

I believe in everyone that I help that they will get over whatever they are struggling with.

I regret nothing in my past. My past made me who I am today.

Well you seem to be heading in the right direction by getting your friend to talk to your Youth Leader, so thats something you should be proud of.

If you get the right support from your friends, Youth Leader, and anyone else who is privvy to information and willing to help, it'll get easier overtime. Don't give up hope.

Remember, other people on here have struggled, or are still struggling, with these issues, and other issues as well. You're not alone in this.

Hey Alex,

I'm sorry to hear about what happened, and I know that at times it seems as though cutting is the only route to go. When in reality, its the worst way to go. I used to be lucky to go 2 days without cutting. I recommend talking to an adult about it, they are the best people to talk to because they can help you. I know you may be scared, but in the long run, you will not regret it! Below I'm going to post some links for you to help you the next time you want to do it. As always, my PM is always available if you need to talk about anything.

Keep strong, keep pushing to the future, and don't look back on the past, nothing can change the past. You can only change the future.

I've had times like that, when I can't go more than two days. You just have to look through it, like it's a fog. I know, I'm a crappy advice giver, but find something to look forward to. Join a club, find a television show, join a website (teeeeenhelp...?) And just do something that makes you look forward to SOMETHING and make something worth living for.
If you want to quit, I always say this, but you also need to get rid of your tools. That has made the biggest difference in lowering my cutting.
