Thumbs down this is what i wanted right? - March 11th 2009, 11:30 PM

my parents to care? No, i didn't get the balls to tell them im still cutting. They are noticing how im not eating now. They went out and bought all this food thats a bunch of crap. I got bugged until i ate a salad. My boyfriend is also worrying about me because we met up in the hallway after i had gym and i almost passed out and he noticed that i wasn't eating lunch. I don't know why i do this to myself. I mean i know im not the skinniest chick ever i like my body sometimes though. Is this also a coping mechanism people use like self-harm? But today in gym i hadn't eaten since lunch the previous day and i haven't slept in god knows how long due to really weird nightmares and i took asprin right before we went outside plus i had a tank top underneath my hoodie and we arent allowed to wear tank tops so i had to keep it on and its already really hot down here. On top of all that crap he wouldn't let me go get water and i had to play football which im normally good at but i got really bad vertigo i think thats what its called and i fell down and everything was like black. The coach didn't notice thank god the last thing i need is to get an ambulance called and have my parents flip out. My grades arent doing so good either like i seriously don't know how they could get any loweer yet they are. Plus i started cutting on my left leg. My dad is all pissed at me because im mad at a comment he made at dinner about how one week im a lesbian then the next im a vegetarian and that i need to make up my mind(that's what my dad calls funny) fyi daddy i never said i was a lesbian im bisexual would you like me to show you what that is? I hate it when he thinks me not eating meat is funny how can one man be so small minded

And found relief in a knife
The blood flows as she cries
Between The Trees-The Way She Feels

As she sits in the corner
face to the floor
she dispels smoke from from her lips
and slowly floats away with it
lettinggo of so much pain
her tears are thick enough to stain
the pavement that slowly becomes
her best friend when she needs to run away

You currently have four active threads in this forum. I think it is fantastic that you are trying to get help with your self harm problem. But it is best if you just update one thread, then creating a new one everyday. With that said I am going to close your other threads and leave this one open. From now on just try to stick to one thread per forum, makes it easier for everyone to follow you.

Hey Savanna,
Your parents obivously do care about you otherwise they wouldn't be trying to make you eat. Not eating is a form of self harm and can lead to all sorts of problems. In the past I know I have gone from not self harming to not eating. It is still a form of self harm. You need to eat though, because otherwise you will end up blacking out like you already have done. Food gives you energy and you can't function without energy. I guess it is hard for your dad to understand why you wouldn't eat. Do you know what stops you from eating? It might help to think about this. You could try eating small amounts regularly, but you need to eat something!

i don't really know why i do it. i mean they aren't pressing the issue as if its an eating disorder they just think im not eating because im a vegetarian and most of the food in this place is meat. They just don't want me to not be able to concentrate on school. Which i already don't i mean ugh.
