Sudden urges - March 10th 2009, 11:02 PM

Lately, I've been having REALLY deep & sudden urges to cut my wrists, just to bleed out. Like serious urges to where I REALLY have to put on a heater to get really hot to stop the urges (it's weird but it works.) But I have my brothers pocket knife and I feel like slicing myself up like there's no tomorrow!!
And maybe it would feel really good and I have a wrap so IDK if anyone would know cuz I have a torn muscle, so I need it anyway.

Suniesha, I've had these urges, too. You need to remember that although you may want to do this in the moment, it can bring no god results and will only leave you with big, ugly scars and lots of unwanted comments. If you can resist the urge completely, that would be wonderful--if you have to cut, though, try to do it somewhere where it isn't quite so risky.
Love, Calla

look me in the heart and tell me that you won't go
look me in the eye and promise no love is like our love
look me in the heart and unbreak broken, it won't happen

You should try looking at the Alternatives and Distractions thread, and see if there are any ideas there you have not thought of. The whole goal is to try and make it through the next hour without self harm. Then after that, the next hour. All the way until the urges pass. You can do it. =)

I also want to point out, that the doctor may want to look at your arm or wherever if you have a torn muscle, and then you can't hide the cuts. While, you should not do it anyway, make sure you're thinking about if that is a possibility.

Hang in there.

The best wayout is always through~
