Question how can i stop myself? is there any alternatives that work - March 7th 2012, 12:07 AM

im currently suffering from depression and i cant cope, ive been to the dotors but he was basically saying i needed o pull myself together, and i havent heard back from them since. each day gets harder, each week feels like an eternity, i cant do anything anymore, when i get into my head i cant get out, i cant calm down and i just think about how much easier life would be for everyone if i wasnmt here. i think about everything ive done wrong, everyone ive let down, diissapointed, i cant escape the thoughts no matter what i do and it all gets to much and i have to punish myself for being a faliure, so i cut myself, currently i have about 4 cuts on my arm and 3 deep ones on my leg. i feel awful and sick when i realise what ive done but when im in my head i dont think rationally and it seems like the right thing to do, i dont want to do it anymore but i just dont know how to get myself out when i start feeling like this, sometimes smoking a cigerette helps but i cant always get hold of one, someone please tell me some alternatives

First off, Welcome to TeenHelp! I hope you are finding things around the site okay and that it is easy to get used to for you.

If you haven't yet, I really recommend you look at the Self Harm Alternatives thread.
There are a lot of great alternatives there and some may help you, some may not, it is all about trying them out and seeing what works for you.
I really hope this helps and you can send me a message if you ever need anything.
Stay strong
You can do this!

"i don't care your intentions. I just want you to know my self-hatred never took me where I wanted to go. At the end of the day...I can pick at the pain but I can't cut it away."
