Well, I messed up. - March 10th 2011, 11:03 PM

Last night things got so tough, and I let myself cut. I made designs in my arms and I haven't done that since last October. I feel terrible. I should have used better coping skills... Anyway, I just wanted to let someone know what I did and get it off my chest

Getting it off your chest is the best thing you can do, though it's always better to get it off your chest before considering cutting. Whenever you're having a hard time, come here and post a thread, or visit the chat. There are always people here that can help you through the hard and tough time, so that you don't have to cut.

Stupid questions do not exist!
Or do they? Nah. Ask and you shall be answered!

Hey there.

I know you're probably feeling bad about this right now. My advice? Don't. This was just a slip-up. It's nothing more than that. It's nothing you can't bounce back from. It's good you were able to admit you've done something feel you shouldn't have, and you've realised it was perhaps not the best choice.

Do you want to talk about what brought you to this point? What made you feel like you wanted to hurt yourself? What were you feeling at the time? How do you feel now?

I hope things get better for you soon.

Take care.

Hey there.

I'm really glad you've managed to open up and get this of your chest. It's great you know you should have used other coping skills and you recognize where you went wrong!

Chess is right, this is just a slip up. You are in recovry and thats what being in recovery is all about. Its not about self harming and then completely stopping. Its not about having urges or slip ups but its about picking yourself back up and again and starting over. And that you can do, you have the strength!

We're always here so feel free to reach out to us if you ever need any support!

It's good to tell, it always feels better when you do... I know it's not the same, but I wear an emergency elastic band for when I need to cut but can't. Maybe you could do the same. Snap it as hard as you can and come back into reality, think about it and move away from sharp objects, remember why you want to quit and in time you should quit. It's not as easy as people think and a slip-up is vital in getting over it. Remember this regret and you should recover! Good Luck! PM me if you need to talk <3

When life gives you one thousand reasons to cry, show life one million reasons to SMILE!
