If you are willing to help others who SH, reply :) - July 10th 2011, 05:59 AM

I feel like we should have a thread telling people who they can PM for help if they need it... i dont know, i think many times that might have helped me. Just an idea

So i guess, if you are there to help out others struggling with SH, reply to this



I am, btw,

They're the ones that stand to lose

Great idea! So I don't exactly have personal experience with the issue, but I'm always open if anyone needs to talk or vent!

If anyone needs help or advice, just PM me. I can't guarantee I'll be helpful but I'll try my best.

And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.
And Hell followed with him.

I love this idea as well! I'll definitely be glad to talk to anyone. (: I'm still struggling through urges of my own, so I know how hard it can be for people, especially when you feel like you're doing so on your own. Feel free to PM me anytime.

I am more than willing to help anyone who is struggling with self-harm. However, I do have a great alternative to self harm called symbolic cutting. This is where you draw your body on a piece of paper. You then take a red marker and draw cuts on the picture (where you typically harm yourself). You then write on the picture what made you want to harm yourself and how you feel because you didn't. I use it personally and it does work.

I'll try to help, but make no mistake. I might be very blunt, and I will not tell you what you want to hear if I don't agree with it. But, I also went through a lot of things having to do with SH. I don't help by being all cuddles and rainbows, so if that's the type of help you're looking for you'd be better off talking to someone else that will. If you're looking for advice, or someone to tell you what you need to hear (which is not blunt or bad in all circumstances) or someone that isn't going to walk on eggshells, then you're welcome to talk to me.

While never having experienced any self-harm related issues, I am always happy to help others in any capacity possible with any issue, including self-harm. Do note that my PM box is nearing capacity, so in the event that a message gets rejected, use the link in my profile to email me.
