hi... - November 29th 2011, 01:19 AM

Hi, Ive already introduced myself under the depression forum but I will do it again. I'm 17, a girl and I'm depressed and self harm. I hace had to take on a lot the past year, I have a form of ocd......I began having eating problems....I began to withdraw myself from my family. I had never self harmed until this year.....first cutting my legs, then top of my arms, now its my stomach. I don't feel addicted to it altgough I do it everyday at least, usually multiple times. I'm embarassed what I do to myself I just don't feel good enough for anything....I'm inadequate. That's about it. :/

Hi there,
Even though you don't feel addicted to self harm, it is best that you try to stop self harming now. Have you checked out any of the Alternatives on this list? A lot of them are very helpful. You have to find something that works for you that is safe, whether it is writing, doing art, or listening to music. It might also be a good idea to tell someone about this, whether it is a doctor, parent, or family member or close friend that cares about you and is willing to listen. It seems like a good idea to talk to a professional about this. Even if you are nervous about it at first, it would be a good idea in the long run. You do not need to battle this alone. It may seem like it is tough now, but with the proper help it WILL get better. Trust me, you are good enough, you ARE. You are loved and people care about you, everybody on TH cares about you. I care about you. Remember that you are not alone in this fight, we are all here looking out for you. Please stay strong.

Let it come and let it be...

Hi Sydney, I'm Maggie.
I agree with what Dez said. Try to quit now, before you're addicted.

Hi Sydney,

Welcome to TeenHelp!
I know it might seem like you aren't addicted to SH, but you can get to that point and rather quickly.
I agree with Dez and Maggie, take a look at the alternatives to self harm thread and try them out.
They are really helpful.
Don't get annoyed if some of them do not help you, because somethings may help you and others may not,you just have to try the alternatives out and find out what works for you and what does not.
Also, talking about your SH is a great idea, you can talk to a parent, teacher, anyone you trust.
Also, if you do not feel like talking to someone, you could write them a letter and give it to them or leave it for the person somewhere to read, that helps because you do not have to be there when it is read and the person will have time to think about it and process the fact that you SH and they will be able to think through how they will react to knowing this and then they will be able to help you get the help you need.
I hope I've helped and if you ever need anything, you can PM me and I will be glad to help.
