Punching and biting myself - May 28th 2011, 07:12 PM

Whenever a situation is overwhelming I bite my hand between my index finger and thumb. My mom yells at me for it and even hit me for it.

If I have a bad day at school or get yelled at I punch myself as hard as I can. I'll use an open palm sometimes or my fist. The first time I did it was last year when I got in trouble at school.

On occaision I'll use my fingernails to scratch my arms. I cut before but I didn't really like it.

I know I should stop but I can't tell anybody. If I break something or start crying or throw something at the wall I'll get yelled at by my mom.

These are both self destructive behavior, and you should try your best to break these habits. I would recommend talking to someone, such as an adult you trust, or a counselor about these issues. Also the alternatives as PurpleKC95 has mentioned would be great for you to look at.
Stay strong, and PM me if you ever need.

Hey Emma,
I do think it would be useful for you to take a look at the self harm alternative thread
.
I'm sorry to hear your mum shouts at you when you cry. Crying can really help if you're feeling upset. Do you think you could speak to your mum about the way you've been feeling and about why you've been hurting yourself? Maybe if she understands she will be more supportive. Alternatively is there a teacher or another adult you trust who you could talk to?

You don't have to struggle with how you're feeling on your own. If you ever want to talk them let me know.
I hope you start feeling better.
Take care,
Vicky

When I put off hitting myself it gives me urges to cut. It kind of different from cutting because I do it when I'm super angry.

I have the urges to do much of the same activities that you do. What I did to stop one of them today was stop and think about My horse, yeah that sounds weird but she is the thing that makes ma happiest in the world. Thinking about her calmed me down enough that I no longer felt the urge. Maybe you could try thinking about something or someone who makes you happy and go from there. I hope I helped at least a little. Hugs ~shana~

I know how you feel I have stopped cutting and haven't in over four years but still bite myself pinch and scratch but the thing is pretty soon that isn't going to be enough and your going to go into something a lot worse. Since your mom already knows about what your doing maybe you should try telling her that you need to see a therapist if you don't already have one. Also try the alternatives they do work for a lot of people or make up your own

Thanks, I have a cat I could try to think about. My mom doesn't know about the punching, only the biting. I couldn't tell her because my mom is nice but she thinks I'm kind of crazy so that wouldn't go over well. My school is over in like a week so I might as well have the counselor thinking I'm not totally crazy.

i didn't mean school councilor i meant a reg therapist that you see once a week to get the help and support you need from a specialist
