Unhappy No one cares but I post this anyways... - February 24th 2012, 10:29 PM

So I use to cut... I stopped but when I stopped my depressions got worse n I started having suicidal thoughts. About a week ago I had a relapse and I cut again... Ive done it 4 times since then... In October Is when I started cutting... Just because I thought it would be something to help... In November I knew I had a cutting problem and so I told a few close friends hoping they would help... They shut me out for a few weeks not knowing what to do... Than they told the school counselor... Her conclusion was she wasn't worried about me and I was going to be fine... But I wasn't... I kept cutting and all my friends kinda turned against me... I finally stopped cutting late December, I was going to get my friends back... They didn't really want me back... So now I'm a school, I don't have friends to work with on projects, no one to sit with at lunch...no one to talk too... S now I have a triple threat... Depression self harm and suicidal thoughts.... I'm so sick of life n idk half the time I just wanna run away...die...something better than the place I'm in now.

Please don't think like that, there are always people to talk to, like here. and in school, maybe you could just try to go to someone who seems nice and try to talk a bit. it maybe seems like they would think "she's weird" or something, but I promise you, they won't.

Hey Amanda
I am sorry that you're going through such a hard time. No one deserves to be in such an awful place. But things will get better, I promise. It may not seem like that they ever will, but one day they will.

People usually see self harmers as "weird, crazy, stupid". Most of the time they can't understand Self Harm. They don't know how to respond and how to deal with such a situation. So they prefer to run away from it. Like your friends did. It does not make you bad. They are the ones who didn't know how to handle the situation.

And well, congratulations on going 2 months without cutting! It is a great achievement! Self Harm is very addicting. Its difficult to stop doing it once you start. 2 months is a long time, and I am proud of you for going that long without it. You should try stopping again. You have done it once and I am sure you will be able to do it again. We all have relapses, it is okay. But what is important is that we get back on our feet and try again. Try to use these alternatives whenever you feel like cutting. Every alternative may not work for you. You might have to try some to find the one that works.

Try setting up short and long term goals for you. Like getting married, having kids, visiting other places. And short term goals like eating something you like, watching a movie etc. Move out of the house at least once a day. Exercise, ride a bike. take a walk in a park. Don't put yourself in a shell. It is not healthy.
Also check out the reasons to live.

You need to tell someone about all this and get help. Here is a list of people whom you can tell. Your friends and school counselor didn't understand, but there are others who will and who will get you professional help and support you. You just need to find the right person, like finding the right alternative for SH.

We are all here to help you and support you. PM/VM me anytime. I'd be happy to talk to you and help you in any way that I can.
Stay strong and take care
