Unhappy Hi. I'm Alex. And I really wanna quit... - February 21st 2012, 11:19 PM

Hello.
I'm Alex, as you can tell.
I've been scratching myself, Nd it's steadily getting worse.
At first I was just doing it a little bit, until I almost bled, but not quite.
Now I do it much more often, and I get a couple drops of blood because there was more pressure.
The butterfly project hasn't worked, it's like in that moment, they're invisible, and after I finish, I see them, dead, and it makes me angry that I slipped up...
I checked out the alternatives thread, and I might pick a few out of there to use next time.
I just need a bit of support is all. Please? Just reassurance that I'm not.... Weird, alone, just being stupid...



I love you.... I wish you'd love me too...

Hi there, Alex. I'm glad that you've checked out the alternatives thread here on TH because it has a lot of great ways to distract yourself from how you're feeling in the moment. And it has helped me quite a few times. You are not weird, you most certainly aren't alone, and you are not being stupid - not at all. Have you ever thought of talking to someone who you trust about how you've been feeling? Stay safe, take care, and if you ever need someone to talk to feel free to pm me.



Rescue is possible. Love is the movement ♥

You're definitely not weird or alone or stupid, at all. I'm a cutter too, although I'm getting much better because I'm trying really hard to stop. Try ripping up paper or breaking pencils, if you have any lying around. I guess it sound kinda violent and destructive but it helps me and hey, it's better than hurting yourself!
PM me if you need to talk about anything. And please try your hardest to stop because my cutting got much much worse very fast and I don't want that to happen to you <3 I'm here if you ever need someone.
