getting worse - February 15th 2009, 06:23 PM

been doing SH for like 4years now, and i always try to keep it to 1/2 cuts whenever i cut.. to be able to hide it propperly

But its getting worse, anytime i cut now i get carried away and go straight for 7/8 cuts now.. my arms look messed up

i dont know what to do anymore
i cant talk to a doctor or anyone in real, i dont have the courage to, im too shy/embaressed to..

im lost..
i dunno what to do but cut..

Hey Lisa, As you know self harm is an addictive habit, and its easy to lose control without even realising.
If you find it hard to open up, to people you know personaly, first try to open up here on TH, on chat, or on a thread, the more you get used to this, the more comfortable you will become about talking to someone.
As for the cutting, throw away the item you use to hurt yourself, bury it in the rubbish or go for a walk and just throw it, somewhere you know you wont be able to get it, the further away this item is the less of an urge you'll have if you had it in front of you. Also have a look at the alternatives thread on the SH forum, and when you want to cut have a look at that, and instead, read, have a bath, exercise, draw on your self in red pen etc.
take care
and pm me if you need anything x
