Urges are back - December 4th 2011, 01:41 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.


My sister moved out and my mom got mad because she moved in with a guy that steal and stuff like that. I don't know what to do I feel like my family's falling apart. I have been having really strong urges to cut for the last few days not only because of what happened today its also because I have Mid-Terms coming up and I need to pass them that is kind of stressing me out. I am loosing my mentor at the end of this month because of insurance issues.

Please Help!?

Thanks In Advance,

Cutting yourself will not help you pass your exams. Studying will. Concentrate all your anger towards studying and passing your mid-terms. Any time you feel the urge tell yourself no and drop it. It is like when your parents tell you no and it is the end of discussion. NO! and that is it don't think about it anymore. Think about studying and then go study.

Hope this helps..

Thanks for responding! I am a little better today. Studying has always been a problem for me because I have autism and it makes it hard to study.

Hi there.

I'm really glad that you have come to us here at TeenHelp for some support, you definitely deserve it.

Firstly, I can relate to studying. I can normally focus for about ten minutes. What I do is, work for ten, and break for five. It might help you to take little breaks like this through out your studying. It might help and it might not but it could be worth trying. In those breaks perhaps get around and walk or sing for a little. Do some drawing or something to break your mind from the focus you have had on your work to something more enjoyable. Or just go and talk to someone for a few minutes for a break. Like already said, you hurting yourself isn't going to make your grades better, help you focus more or make studying easier. It's not worth the pain love.

I am sorry to hear that things are a bit rough in your family right now, but you need to take some time of for you and be a little selfish and look after yourself. You're struggling right now and it's okay for you to have some you time. How about you treat yourself each day? Just something little which you will appreciate, like having some chocolate, getting a bubble bath, going for a long walk, watching a film with a hot choccy. Anything, just have some you time and enjoy it because you deserve it.

If you want to talk to me more about the self harm or whats going on at home, you're more than welcome to. Just remember you're worth more than self harm and as hard as things are for you right now, they can and they will get better so hang on in there. You can do this.

Stay safe,

"Only in the dark, can you see the stars..."
