Unhappy I'm cutting again... - January 19th 2012, 08:00 PM

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.

I started cutting mostly because I was angry and didnt know where else to direct my anger. Yesterday I started cutting on my shoulder and upper arm. I stole a small blade that was lying around the automotive shop this morning and cut a few more cuts because I felt like I needed to do more damage. I thought it would make me feel better but I feel bad again because I know I shouldn't have done that :/
I just don't know what to do...


Everthing I see seems to be a lie. And everything you see in me you think is the truth. But, really all you see is what I'm masking the real me with. You never see me cry. Because I'll never let you. And you'll never see me die because I feel like I already have in a way.

Hey there,

I'm really sorry things are hard for you at the moment. When you are angry or upset it sometimes feels like the easiest way is to SH, it isn't. I would really suggest talking a look at the alternatives thread and next time you get urges you can try some of them. It is trial and error and therefore not all of them may work for you, but hang in there and you WILL find one that does.
Also perhaps you could talk to someone about this, such as a family member or even your doctor? Someone that can help and support you through this.

Hang in there, you can get through this,
Feel free to PM me if you ever want/need to talk,
take care,
Charli
