Unhappy hate these urges :( - May 11th 2011, 10:24 PM

Really struggling today. It's one month and one week and the urge is just so strong! I know I can't go back to that, I can't be dealing with fresh cuts again. I just want these urges to go away

When I feel this way, I remember how good it felt when I was SH free for 2 years. I promise you, when the urges go away, you will feel amazing. Show yourself that you are strong, and that you can overcome this. I promise that you will feel so much better without SH. Please stay strong.

I really can't do this
I really need help to get through this! I've tried distracting myself but it's just not working anymore

Yes you can do it. Just keep sayin no to the urges. Have you tried the alternitives th suggests? I know at least a few of em help me. I know exercise is a good one. Im here for ya if you need a friend to talk to about it. Be strong

Thanks. I don't even know what's wrong, the urges are just getting so bad tonight. I'm so tired but I can't sleep. I'm supposed to have my first session with my new counsellor tomorrow but I'm absolutely terrified of talking. That sounds really stupid, staying quiet obviously isn't helping me but I honestly don't know what to tell her.
Kind of gone off on one a bit there, but at least it distracts me for 30seconds. I don't think these urges go away. And I can't even talk to anyone irl about it
I'm so glad people here understand how hard it is.

Aw well if it makes ya feel better i never talked to my councilors either. They finally jus gave up, which i was happy about cuz i didnt like therapy. But now i kinda wish i had a professional to talk to. I guess it just has to be the right time for you, you hav to want their help. But dont feel shy to share ur problems with them, they wont judge, they just wanna help u get better. Either way ull still hav us here on TH

You can do it. You may believe that there is no other way, and that the best option is to cut, but don't do it. I felt those same exact urges and was very serious about doing it. But I took a step back and thought to myself "How is this going to affect me emotionally, and how is it going to affect the people around me?"and I just said No. I know that you can do it, don't give up fighting!!

If you ever need to talk, I'm here to PM!

Im sorry to hear that, um i started cutting when i was in 6th grade i stopped (until lately) and yeah i still urges im not gonna lie and tell you that as you keep living theyll stop but when you can pick up a knife , or whatever you use to cut and you dont have urges ,then you know that you have stopped for good.

-wish you best of luck xoxo naomi
