please, someone respond - February 21st 2009, 04:32 AM

i just need to talk to someone. i'm a freshman in college now. i've never really had any friends. none in high school, and none in college. my loneliness causes me to get really really depressed. and it gets worse on the weekends when everyone is hanging out with their friends, and i'm stuck in my pathetic room doing homework. recently i've been getting urges to cut myself. and today i bought razors so that when i decide to start, i would have it available. but i keep telling myself not to do it. it's like smoking, it gets addictive and it's bad for u. just as if i need to stand up to peer pressure and say no to smoking, i need to stand up to the part of me that wants to cut myself, right? but the urge is so strong, and that's what's causing me confusion right now. should i do it or not? and this debate that's going on and on in my head is making my head hurt. and i don't have anyone to talk to so i can't let my feelings out. please, someone just talk to me...

No, resist it as long as you can. Have you seen the alternatives thread?

Becca, feel free to pm me (or anyone else on here you would like, that what it's for). I think making some friends that you could meet with in person would be best, but for now you can try to just take baby steps and chat with us here. Good luck Becca, stay strong.

Try and do something to keep your hands busy.

http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/showthread.php?t=22 Maybe look at this and see if this can help?

my best suggestion would be to try to tell yourself that if you cut in the end your only going to cause yourself more pain...maybe...do you have one close friend you could talk to it about...a trusted role model...try finding some thing to distract your thoughts from cutting..

hey becca.

cutting is NOT the way to do things because it woll only result in hurt and pain.. there's sooo many ways that can help you to deal with this ...try doing something meaningful and simple (ranging from treating yourself to warm cocoa to watching a show and reading a book ) because it'll help make everything feel better. and feeling better is already a part of recovery trust me, it helps

i think you're going through what a lot of people went through... my best advice is to start taking part in activities that will allow you to interact with more people. then, try to get to know more people and since i'm REALLY sure that you're someone who's nice to know people will start talking to you more

and besides that, always remember we're all here to talk to in case you need anyone to help you in case you're feeling down.


Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!
