So close to being done. - March 6th 2012, 06:45 PM

I'm trying so hard to not do it, for my family, for my wonderful boyfriend, for myself. But its so hard. I'm so stressed from being grounded, I get stir crazy when I'm home too long. And my father won't let me go to my boyfriend's house because they smoke weed over there so me and him won't get any more alone time. I'm not allowed to smoke anything anymore. And my boyfriend went through my camera and found pictures of old cuts which makes me feel terrible about myself. I feel so disgusting. I want to carve chunks out of myself so I can feel a little better. The blood always seems to help.

I am sure you know this, but it seems to me you need someone to remind you.

In the long run self harming will make you feel worse, your guilt will heighten. You will have more scars, things to cover up and worry about people seeing.

Self harm isn't worth it. Go on the alternatives thread, delete the pictures on your camera, read, excersise, write down all the emotions you are feelings, talk to your boyfriend, emerce yourself in school work. Do anythings but self harm.

You can beat this.
Stay strong.

I broke. I'm an idiot and I broke. I'm not strong enough to live without it. Its all I've known for 5 years. I'm lost without it. God save me.

I understand that completly, What I did was try a different distraction technique everyday until I found one that worked. Once I found one that worked I used it until it stopped working if it did.

It is a very very slow process, but you will get there. It is nearly 3 months since I self harmed now, and 4 and a half years since I started. Slow steps have got me there. It will get you there to.

I don't even know if I'm worth stopping now. Last time I felt like this I did 400 gashes in the span of 3 hours. I can only imagine how good I'd feel.

Yes you will feel good for about 5 seconds max. Then you will feel annoyed, angry, frustrated, upset etc.

You are worth recovery. No one including you is worth self harm and not recovering.

Think of the scars that last time left. The annoyance you felt etc.

You don't want to feel that guilt.

The more you self harm the more you are addicted.

Please cling on, fight. You can beat this.

Good luck and well done
