i thought i could do it
i thought i could stop self harming, but i guess i can't, bcause 2night i took a staple and cut open the scabs of three cuts from over last weekend. i don't know what 2 do. help me. btw i've been feeling really depressed lately, and it seems like i always have 2 force a smile out. i don't if i have depression. but i may cause like i've felt unhappy since early last year. i don't know if i should talk 2 my counselor about mayb having depression or not. i think imight but i'm not sure. i do know that suicide is always seems 2 b floating somewhere in the back of my mind in the background. but i need help. i wish i hadn't slid that staple across those scabs 2day.:'(

Re: i thought i could do it
Well, first off, talking to your councellor is a good first step. And you\'ll have to be open and honest for them to be able to help you in any way.

Second, take a look at the "Alternatives" thread. I mean, I\'m guessing you SH when you\'re worse off? Either way, the thread covers alternatives for all the reasons one would SH.

Hope this helps, and I know you can get through this.

Hey Alex,

It sounds like things are pretty tough for you right now. You can stop self harming; you might have had a little slip up right now but that doesn\'t mean you can\'t stop. If you want to stop then you sure can. It is a really good idea to speak to your counsellor about feeling depressed. They would hopefully be able to help you so the right help can be put in place for you. I hope you do manage to speak to your counsellor Alex. You deserve help but you just have to reach out for it.

Stay strong.

Re: i thought i could do it
I agree with Jen, it is a good idea to talk to your counsellor as she will be able to either help herself or tell you who can, then you can get the help you deserve.

Everyone slips up when they try to stop... Are you using any alternatives? If you feel they aren\'t working maybe try another, or if you aren\'t using any then maybe look at the thread (click here) and try to find one that you think will work for you. If it doesn't, keep trying them.

Seeing a counsellor is hard and you're doing really well, perhaps mention the idea of suicide? It won't solve anything, just cause more pain for those you leave behind <3
