I caved. - December 5th 2011, 10:42 AM

One week! I was so happy to acknowledge that important milestone Saturday..

Then Sunday night, I got into the same slump I have been in and picked up a razor this time, not scissors, and stupidly tried to stop the pain I'm in.

Last night it was the same thing, but to the point that I had to wrap up my leg before bed to keep myself from bleeding through.

I don't know what to do.

Stress caused me to self harm. I wasn't thinking. I was just stressed, and so I did it.

This makes me sad :/

Think of all the good things. Stress or someone else hurting you is not grounds to take it out on yourself. You didn't do anything to deserve that.



PM me if you need ANYTHING!! (:

So you slipped up. I promise it happens to all of us, and I know how hard it can be to stop SH-ing. What matters now is that you keep trying. Try the alternatives thread (if you haven't read it already, I suggest you do). You can do this! Stay strong, lovely <3

It makes me sad too. I've been looking at the alternatives and they are great ideas, but sometimes when I'm being irrational I don't always think to look there.

And I know it happens to everyone, but it seems to be happening to me pretty much daily. I just feel bad that I can't stop it.

I know how it is, once you get into that frame of mind, you don't even want to try to stop. I really don't know what to say to this (and any advice I give you will be totally hypocritical... :-/). One thing that helps me, though, is that I printed out the list of alternatives so it's easy to get to when I'm triggered.

Also, have you considered talking to a counselor about this? They're there to help, and they could help you deal with your emotions.

Thanks for the idea about the alternatives. I might try that. I'll just have to make sure it's hidden.

And I was actually going to talk to my school counselor today, but she wasn't there and the only one there was a guy. Because of my past, I don't like discussing things with guys. I may try again tomorrow.

You definitely need to speak to someone that can help you immediately. That is all I can say.
