Breathe. Count down from 10, do it again.

Why are you having these thoughts? It's going to be okay, but hurting yourself isn't going to help anything that's going on right now. Just try and clam down a little bit.

Get away from amthing you could use to self harm. If possible go into a room around people or text/ ring a friend just for a normal chat which hopefully will distract you. Write down how you are feeling as this will let out your emotions in a healthy way.
Those are a few suggestions go to alternative thread for more if the above are not possible or don't work.
Keep strong. Keep fighting.
By posting this it means you don't want to self harm so don't let it win. You can beat self harm.
Take care and please don't hurt yourself. I and the rest of teenhelp are here for you through this difficult time so near that inimd.

Keep going. Stay strong

I think you really need to consider getting professional help. Based on your threads, you are a threat to yourself. If you're already getting professional help and it's not working, I would highly suggest inpatient treatment. I don't think there's too much we can do on this website to truly help you. We might be able to help you deal with short term things like urges, but we aren't doctors.

Hey Megan.

First off, have you tried any of our alternatives? They can really help when you're feeling triggered, and they're all a lot safer and better than hurting yourself.

I know what it's like to have these thoughts. I know what it's like to fight them off, and to let them win - and I'm not going to insult your intelligence by telling you which way I think is better.

I'd also like to remind you of the difference between thoughts and actions. Yes, you want to hurt yourself, but you don't have to. Yes, you have these thoughts, but you don't have to act on them.

I hope you feel better soon.

Take care.
