Hey Dionna.

Don't feel like you have to apologise. I'm sorry that you felt like you had to hurt yourself - do you want to talk about what brought this on? We're here to listen, and help if we can.

I'm glad to hear that you're not going to let this stop you from recovering, and that it's not going to prevent you from moving on. It's great that you understand that this isn't the end, and that you can move past it. Just dust yourself off and try again, that's the way to go.

I wish you all the best with it.

Hey Dionna.

You honestly have no reason to apologise to us. You haven't done anything worse as such and you certainly didn't mean to hurt any of us.

I am really sorry that you're struggling with self harm right now. I can understand how much of a viscous cycle it can become and how hard it can be to break out of that.

I don't know why you self harm. I don't know what it is which triggers you and what it is about hurting yourself which helps you deal with that. But if you want to talk to use about whats going on for you right now and how self harming makes you feel better and why you do it then you are more than welcome too and I will try and help you as much as I can.

I know it's really hard buy you need to try and use distractions . You have to really force yourself to use them. I can advise you to and you can either listen or use my advice, because at the end of the day you're the one in control. Distractions can help you and they will, it's just finding the right ones for you. Not everything will work and it's real important that you don't let the ones that don't work set you back.

You ARE worth so much more than this though. You don't need to hurt yourself. Things can and will get better. It won't be like this forever. I know things are really hard right now but you know just as well as I do that you have to beat the urges to overcome all of this. That you hurting yourself isn't going to make anything better and that sooner or later you will find yourself with the urges again. You're worth so much and don't deserve to be going through this.

I hope this helps. Keep your chin up.
Jessie.

It's good that you're trying. One of the worst things you can do is lose hope and give up. It sounds like you're not going to let this get you down, and that's great.

What makes you think that you might cut today, though? Has something triggered you?

I'm sorry to hear that.

Is there anything we can do to help? We want to help you, but if you don't give us enough information, that may not be possible.

sure..and the things that triggered me was my friend cut herself again,she cut herself for the first time before me, if one of my friends finds out i cut again she will tell the principal, and i got depressed,and the reason i was depressed is because it was exactly 4 months ago since my dad and his ex-girlfriend broke up..

Re: i cut again - April 6th 2011, 04:15 AM

I know how hard it can be to try and help a friend who's struggling, but, if you look at it logically, hurting yourself isn't going to help their situation either.

It's tough when a friend thinks they know what's best for you, even though you feel something else would be better. It sounds like your friend cares about you, and just wants you to be safe and happy. Have you tried talking to him/her about this, and how they can best help? Because what they believe will help may not be what you actually need.

It's understandable to be upset after something like that happens. Have you talked to anyone about it?

Throw away the razors. And but a rubber band on wrist and snap it when you wanna cut, or draw a butterfly on your wrist. and post stuff if you have urges.
