I don't know What to do to help myself - November 20th 2014, 09:02 PM

I get random urges to try to break things. Or hurt myself kind of. I've never self harmed. But I get urges to. I'll rip my hoodie pockets for example I've snapped my phone in half and I've broken my tablet. Ad I don't know why. I'm not sad. I'm not angry. I'm happy jut I just get urges to do things. And it's just getting worse

Hi There!

Welcome to TeenHelp! Hopefully we can help you figure this out.
I am not at all a psychological professional (even if I were, diagnosis Etc. are against TeenHelp's Terms of Service) but I will try to help as best I can with what I know about mental health.
You mentioned that you are thinking of breaking things and hurting yourself but that you have not hurt self and you have broken things. You also mentioned how you do not have any anger, you are not sad and that you are happy. I'm just restating things just so I can be sure I am understanding you clearly and not missing anything important.
Do you know of any events that could have happened to make you angry at some point? Maybe you have repressed anger: you could be angry somewhere deep inside your subconscious and consciously you could not be clear as to why you are angry but you are reacting to it externally?
It also could be a build-up of a combination of things: family issues that have not been resolved that could be weighing on your mind, friend issues Etc.
There also could be many other reasons for this.
I suggest that you talk to a mental health professional such as a school counselor, counselor you may be seeing outside of school or an adult that you trust that can help you connect with a person that can help you.
I hope that you find this helpful and that you can get help soon.
If you would like to talk about anything, you can send me a PM or VM on here and I will do my best to reply as soon as possible.
Take care.

"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."
