slowly losing my will to live - April 3rd 2011, 02:37 PM

i started cutting nearly 3 months ago. i started off only doing one cut. i tried to give it up but recently relapsed. now i'm making multiple cuts and i'm cutting deeper. it seems like everything is going wrong right now
first my parents' non-stop arguing, then my boyfriend was only using me, then my parents' non-stop arguing again, and now my so-called "friends" have given up on me and aren't even trying to help me through this anymore.
sometimes i feel like everyone would be so much better off without me here anymore




and in that moment, I swear we were infinite

Celine,

I'm sorry you're going through a hard time at the moment. I understand how hard it can be for you to not SH, but it's not the best option, and you know tihs because you've posted asking for help.

I urge you to maybe seek professional help for it, if it gets too bad. SH is bad for you and only makes the way you feel that much worse by adding guilt and physical pain to it all. Also try looking at the SH alternatives: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/ try them, and although not all will work, you're bound to find one that does. PM me if you ever need to talk.

Hey there.

I'm really sorry that theres a lot going on right now and it's getting a bit to much.

Self harm can become a viscous cycle and it can often be hard to get out of this cycle. It can become quite an addiction because you are using it to cope. And if you're finding something which helps you cope and makes you feel better for even just a few minutes then you're going to use it because yo're hurting so much right now.

I really want to encourage you to look at the list of alternatives which Hollie sent you the link to in her reply. Not every single thing out there will help you but there will be ones which do. You will come across ones which don't and its really important that you don't get hung up on them and let them stop you trying new things.

If you want to talk about whats going on more you're more than welcome to. I want to make sure you know that you are not alone and that people do love and care about you. That by self harming you're only hurting yourself more and you are honestly worth so much more than it. You can beat it, I'm not saying its going to be easy because it definitely won't be but it will be worth it and you can live a life with out self harm.

I really hope you're okay. Stay strong.

Jessie.
