i dont know what to do. - June 29th 2011, 02:35 AM

I have been self harming since 3rd grade after my sister died. I'm in 7th grade now and its worse than ever. I can't go a day with out cutting. Cutting is all I think about. Eveyone in my family knows but they still don't help me. I'm starting to lose hope. I'm not suicidal but being dead seems a lot better than being alive. I always feel dead, but cutting reminds me that I am alive. Its and addiction and sadly I don't think I want to stop. I have no idea what to do.

Hey there,

I'm really sorry things are hard for you at the moment. It is always really hard losing someone close to you and i am sorry for your loss, it is understandable that you still feel pain over this. I know that sometimes cutting feels as though it can help, but it doesn't. As you said yourself it is addictive and becomes extremely hard to stop, you CAN do it, I know you can: you have to believe in yourself.
Have you looked at the alternatives thread? They will help to distract you while the urges fade, it is trial and error and not all of them may work for you: but hang in there and you WILL find one that does.
You said that your family know about it, have you tried sitting down and talking to them about what is causing you to feel this way? They should be there to support you through this and get you the help that you need.
Feel free to PM me if you ever want to talk,

Take care and stay strong,
