Trying so hard. - June 27th 2011, 07:22 PM

I'm really struggling here, today's my first time since my suicide attempt that I've had the dressings off, and now the cuts are out in all their ragged glory.
They hurt, I wont lie, but it isn't stopping me from wanting to cut more.
Maybe not to try and kill myself, but just to cut.
Just to release the tension.

I can feel it on the inside, the urges are so strong, and I don't know another way of making them go. I can feel the tears but they wont come and the only time they do is in the aftermath of my cutting.

I'm really, really struggling. I want to cut so badly, it's driving me insane.
The creative stuff just doesn't work for me, and I can't get this out of my system.

What do I do?

Well if creative stuff won't work why not try talking to someone you trust or anyone on here. Cause everyone is so willing to help you. Also you can try snapping a rubber band on your wrist then cutting untill the urges are lest strong. Hope everything will get better!!! I believe that you can do it. If you need anything just pm or vm me or anyone

Joanna. If you ever need someone to talk to PM me. I will always respond. I am in the States so the time difference is a bit much...but maybe we can even talk live some times. You have come too far to give up on yourself now!

I can be here for you if you want...

You CAN do this, you ARE strong, you need to believe in yourself. I know it is really hard at the moment but you will make it through, things will improve just hang in there.
Take a look at the alternatives, as you know they are trial and error, so therefore not all of them may work for you, but you WILL find one that does, stay strong.
Perhaps you should talk to a family member or someone you trust about this, someone that can help and support you through.

If you ever want to talk, feel free to PM me, i am always willing to listen.
Take care and stay strong,
