Unhappy Having a bad day. - April 11th 2012, 10:59 PM

So, earlier today, I told my best friend that I sometimes self-harm. I liked the way he reacted. He didn't have a go at me, or get really upset, or even ask me to stop. He just told me that he understands (I know he does, because he does it sometimes too). We basically sat and talked about different experiences together. I thought it might help me now that someone knows.

But it hasn't helped. I'm having a bad day. I really want to do anything to hurt myself. It's been a week since I've done it, but now I want to do it more than ever before. I don't know what to do. I've tried all the things on the list of alternatives, but none of them seem to work.

That's good you have a best friend to talk to about it now if you want.

Wow, a week is great! You want to, but part of doesn't because you want to stop, right? I know the urge I did it again yesterday after going 5 days without. So that's awesome you made a week! Don't do it again. I have faith in you. Try drawing on yourself with red ink then snapping a rubberband. it hurts but not as damaging as other SHing and it kinda looks like blood.. I'm just trying to help.
just make it through today. You can do it. Don't count the days you go without; just take one day at a time. try talking to your friend again about the urges and what not since he understands a bit.

I've tried the elastic bands and the pen, but they just don't work.

5 days is brilliant, well done

But you've gone five days before, you can do it again. I believe in you.

Thank you. I appreciate it. It's tough, but I'm doing all I can not to do it.

Aw, thanks so much. I started March 3rd and the longest I've gone yet is 16 days.

I believe in you, too. You can do it. Keep holding on, you're doing a great job.

In a way, I've been doing it all my life. In primary school, I would make myself fall over during break times so that I could cut my knee and sit inside alone, rather than play with the other children.

But thank you. Really.
