Hi, I used to be a self-harmer so I can relate to you completely. Sometimes we just feel so helpless that cutting seems the only way to feel any relief; I used to do horrible things to myself because I felt that I deserved to feel pain, I felt as if that was the only way to deal with myself. Obviously that's not true since I don't cut anymore, and I know you're the same. You're not a monster, you're just lost, you need attention, you need to feel that someone cares. I know you probably feel completely helpless now, but believe me, life has so much to offer. The darkest hour is just before the dawn, what you're going through right now is only a stage... It's not permanent. I wish you all the best, and I hope one day you find your happiness, just like I did. If you'd like to talk about this more, please feel free to PM me. I've been there too so I know (at least to some extent) how you feel, but most importantly, please don't give up on yourself!

Hi There!

Wow. It seems like you are really struggling right now. YOUR NOT ALONE. There are people that care and want to help. I am one I will talk to you anytime you anytime you need to talk. I am sorry that you are struggling so much. Can you try some coping skills like going for a walk/run, watching a movie, reading a book, playing video games... Anything that will get your mind off cutting. You CAN get through this. I know you can.

Please don't hesitate to PM me if you need anything


Stay Safe,
