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 there Leslie (: ,

Firstly, I think you should relax. Your post shows that you are extremely worried about yourself and what others are going to think. Take a step back from your situation and just take a deep breathe. There isn't any reason to start freaking yourself out.

It's great that you realized that you seem to be needing self harm more and more; and that you want to stop before it get's worse. My suggestion is to try some alternatives. Here are a list of some possible alternatives (there are many more, these are just some that your fellow TeenHelp users suggested) : http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/ .

You seem pretty concerned that your friend is going to be mad at you just because you wouldn't be at her house this weekend because you were about to check yourself in. If she's a true friend then she wouldn't mind and should fully support you getting help. Or if you really feel like you need to be admitted, talk to her and say that something has come up and you need to reschedule a different time for you guys to hang out.

Relax, take a few more deep breaths, and try some alternatives.
Use the fact that you don't want this to get worse as your motivation to stop.

I hope everything goes well <3
If you ever want to talk, feel free to message me.
Stay strong <3

Hey,
Keep trying with the alternatives, eventually you will find one that works. By the sounds of it you are worried about yourself and really want to stop, maybe you could talk to a family member, or an adult that you trust - someone that could help and support you through this?
I know how you feel with the addiction, and it will be hard to break, but you can do it; i know you can. Keep reminding yourself that you want to stop, you don't want to upset your friends, it will scar and you don't deserve the pain. You are amazing and beautiful.
You can do this, i believe in you
Stay strong and take care
Feel free to PM me if you ever want to talk
