Unhappy Im actually quite nervous about posting this one up - March 23rd 2012, 10:55 PM

Im actually quite nervous about posting this one up

Ok I have tried so hard to give up self harm but I cant do it. My best friend knows and shes been helping me soo much and I feel a bit like a burden on her now.

I really know I should probably seek professional help with it but Im scared because it means its beaten me and that if I talk about it properly I means its actually happening, I dont want to except that I need help.
Ever since I started I used to SH when I was happy like just wanting to, but know I feel like I have to that its something I have to do that Im not aloud to be happy.

It makes me feel like a freak, I probably am a freak. I have been finding it very difficult talking about it and I usually am fine talking to my best friend about it but now I dont know, its like I dont trust her but Im supposed to shes my best friend. I could trust her with everything before
I just dont know what to do? I dont particularly want to live but I dont think I could ever kill myself

I just want some advice.

That's it!, you've answered your own question here. Go tell some adult, show them what you've been doing, and get that help.

Forget all your other excuses, the goal is to be done with the S/H..you deserve to feel better. Don't confuse yourself by making this some control struggle..it's not about control, it's about happiness.

Go tell.

PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.
