Unhappy I Came So Close :'( - June 1st 2011, 06:34 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I was making a sandwich and before I stuck the knife in the mayo I slit my wrist but thankfully it was a butter knife so it just left a white pressure mark. I need help now. I just can't take it anymore! I don't know why I did but I did! I don't want to become one of the SH'ers who can't stop.

Can you tell your parents what's going on? I'm sure they'd be more than willing to help you out. Trust me, they want to know what you're going through.

Also, have you checked out the self-harm alternatives?

It's okay hun, it was just something small and that's good.

Was there something that had happened before that to stress you out and make you feel like you wanted to self harm?

Whenever I want to I find a distraction, like Jazz Guy said, check the alternatives. Those will probably help you a lot. Also, next time you want to do something like that, or you know you're going to, drop the knife and walk away.

I know it's hard to, but if you really don't want it to become a habit, or an addiction, you're going to need to be able to leave for a minute until you calm down.

Chris, I don't really feel comfortable telling them, but we did make an appointment with the counselor today for next Monday. And yes, Hollie (safe-inside-my-head) showed me the alternatives.

Maddie, not as far as I know. I've just been really stressed out lately because of everything and I guess it was an impulse. And I will. I really don't wanting it to become an addiction, I'm not the kind of person.

For me it's always easiest to avoid stressful situations. I know what you mean about impulse.

It is good that you're trying to stop so early on before it becomes an addiction.

<3 It'll be okay.
