I think its getting worse. This time i actually did it alittle bit deeper. Everytime i get upset I take it out on myself. I end up cuttin myself deeper n deeper. I thought i needed stiches but no i dont. Its ok. I feel like im losing it everytime i get upset. I need to stop I DO! But wat can i distract myself with other than cuttin. I dont want anyone to see this. I NEED ADVICE real BAD!

You learn at a certain pace. Then that pace goes away. Then

you try and try to do everything you can. Then it gets harder.

Then you give up. Then its all over.

Hey,
I sorry things are rough for you at the moment.
It sounds like it has become an addiction which will be hard to break, but you can do it.
You need to try alternatives that will distract you and help the urges to fade, such as; reading, writing, drawing - something that you enjoy.
Maybe you should talk to someone you trust, such as a family a member? Someone who will support and help you through this.
If you ever want/need to talk feel free to PM me,
Take care and stay strong,
Charli :-)

I threw wat i was using n hopefully i can distract myself n try not to do it again. I hate doing it. I just feel like im a bad person. I hate feeling this way. Im trying to do my best. Ive talked to a therapist bout wat i was doing but who cares no one understands. I dont want to be put away for life or for alittle while for wat i am doing to myself. Im scared to go back bc im not that person. Im a good person n i just have problems. I dont need to be in a place like tat. n plus im adult now n there r scaring adults n tat would tramatize me. I dont want tat. so im going to stop looking for attention n start being the right persont tat everyone wants me to be. Im tired of doing this. I need god in me to help me get through this. Thank u guys for all ur help.

Hey. I know how you feel. When self harm starts becoming an addiction, when all you turn to is self harm, it can be difficult to deal with. I know the thing that I do when I don't want to resort to self harm is to try and get a friend to distract me. My friends and I have a sort of secret code where if we ask a question and it doesn't get answered, then we don't ask anymore. So if I ask my friend "Hey, can you distract me for a while?" She may ask why, and if it has to do with me trying not to self harm I'll just say "I need a distraction." And she'll leave it at that. It's a good way to get my mind off of self harm and a good way to develop a trust in someone as well.

So I say to just go hang out with someone or talk to someone. You don't have to tell them you want to self harm or do self harm. It's just a good way to get away and get your mind off of it. People provide the perfect distraction because generally we self harm when we are alone.



What we see depends
mainly on what
we look
for.
