I just want to stop -
February 20th 2012, 02:38 AM
I just want to stop doing this to myself. I want to roll up my sleeves and wear T-shirts and not be so worrie about people seeing my arms. I want to be able to stop. But I can't. I can't think of anything else to do when I get upset or mad or hurt. Sometimes my motivation to stop triggers something else and makes me go to cut myself again. I just don't want to do this anymore...

It is really great you want to stop self harming.
I know how hard it can be.
Have you tried looking at the list of self harm alternatives?
They are very helpful when trying to fight urges.
Also, if you haven't yet, I'd recommend you try talking to your parents about this and seeing about getting help from a professional counselor or therapist.
Therapists or counselors can help you figure out why you cut and then they can teach you really awesome ways of coping and they can give really good advice.
I really hoep this helps and you can click on my name and send me a message if you ever need someone to talk to.
