I just cut myself again. Bad. really bad. I havent done it in a while and its been a long time since ive done it like this. I dont know what happened, i just freaked out and went at it. And im not satisfied, it didnt fix the problem, the urge is still there and i want to do it again. i dont know why this happened. im so disappointed and i dont know what to do because i feel like im going to do it again any second now.

Hello Lola,

I hear you when you say that you don't know what caused the self-injury, but can you give us a little more information on what happened in the moments leading up to it? Perhaps that can give us some insight into where this came from.

Hoping you feel at least a little more okay than when you clicked Post.

Hey Lola. Do you know why you freaked out? Have you been feeling like cutting for a while? I know that it's still hard after not cutting for a while, I've gone months and even over a year without cutting to find myself back in that situation and still wanting to do it even knowing it doesn't help.

Have you used any the alternatives to SH? If you can't figure out the problem right now, they can at least distract you from the urge itself until you can learn why you want to and why you slipped up.

Stay strong, and if you ever need to you can PM me. <3


when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

I know how hard things can get, and you just have to try and move on and keep going. Attempt to fight it and remember the reasons why you didnt want to in the first place, and maybe go and call someone to distract you or something. It will be okay StayStrong<3


Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is SCARS
They don't see the ANGEL

Lola, you were correct in saying that cutting yourself will not solve your problems, it only causes you physical pain and makes you angry. Please do not hurt yourself, because no matter what you think of yourself, you will always mean a lot to someone.

So you're not generally sure what caused you to want cutting, but you've a bit of an inkling it had to do with your recent isolation.

I'm getting the impression you don't see this as the reason, though. Is this perhaps because you're not seeing it as a 'bad' enough reason to cut, and therefore not justified? Or perhaps that part of you likes being by yourself, so how could it be the trigger for negative feelings? Or something else, perhaps? I am putting feelers out with this, so I may be completely wrong with the above, so feel free to say so if I'm off the mark.
