Hey there,

I'm sorry you're feeling like this now but you can make it. Just think you've made it for 19 days already, that's a great achievement and you can go so much longer. Urges can be hard things to get rid of but I'm sure you've see the Alternative to Self Harm thread so I hope you'll consider using that. Even just reading through the list of alternatives can act as a distraction in itself.

I strongly hope you can ignore these urges because you're so much better than them and you don't need self harm in your life, there are many more healthier ways of coping with things. Just remember though, if you do slip up don't feel like it's the end of the world, slip ups do happen but there's nothing to stop you picking yourself up and trying again.

Take care <3

Hi there,

First off, as Cara said, you made it nineteen days, and that's a long time, especially as it sounds like you've been triggered for a while. If you've gone this long, you can go longer. Just keep ignoring the urges, and they'll fade.

Do you want to talk about why things are tough at the moment? The more we know, the better we can help.

It might help, at this stage, to take some time out from the negatives and focus on the positives - what's good in your life? What are you grateful for? What do you have to look forward to? When some people slip into the 'self-harm thoughts' mode, they block out anything that could make them feel better, choosing instead to concentrate on the things that support their view that 'everything is bad'. I'm not saying that's what you're doing, I'm just giving you something to think about.

I hope you feel better soon.

Stay strong, and take care.

Hey,
Thanks for your replies, it means a lot. Everything's just so confusing at the moment. I don't even know what I want anymore. I failed the first year of uni, I can resit the module but I'm not even sure if I want to. My parents keep saying how I'll enjoy it more next year and it was just the depression this year. I went through a stage of not wanting to get out of bed for about a month. But in all honesty, even if I hadn't had depression, I don't think I would've wanted to go to those lectures. I don't know. Sometimes it just seems like that's how I always thought my life would pan out ya know, with university and all that.

Extremely triggered right now. Had an absolutely nuff of everything! Parents just totally flipping out on me when all's I tried to do was help. Dad called me stupid I can't do this anymore. I'm not strong enough. I'm obviously f*cking stupid so I might aswell do it anyway
