I don't understand... :/ - June 19th 2010, 06:16 PM

I wander around, looking for someone to help me, attention seeking, yet also hiding.. Then when I get attention, I can't bring myself to talk and just run away from it... I am sick of being alone, yet want to be alone.. I hate all my friends being in relationships and me barely being in one, and am selfish enough to be rude to them, I guess as trying to cry out that...
I don't even know, I don't understand. I am conscious that I do this, I know that it is wrong, I know that I will regret it later.. But because I am in such a low mood I am rude anyway...

I don't even know what I'm trying to say, I'm doing it again, right now. I just want help, yet don't... *sigh*

I guess the only solution is to help myself, but argh, I don't know what to do.. I try, ish, but can't fwoihoiwehgrg argh.

Fffffff.

I'm not gonna be able to be much help, hopefully someone else will be. but I understand.
It's like me with my anxiety. All I wanna do is stay home in my comfort zone. But then I hate myself for letting anxiety defeat me. Yet I don't wanna do anything else.
What other problems are you experiencing? Is this the only problem, or more?

I understand what you're saying. I used to experience the same thing with my self-harm. There I was, hoping someone would notice my marks so that they could see how much pain I was in and help me. Then, whenever someone did notice and did ask me about them, I would panic and make up petty excuses.

What helped me immensely was approaching someone myself and initiating the conversation. Saying, "Hey, I have this problem that I really need help with." That way, I had control over who I told. I made sure the person I told first was someone I trust. There was no shock to my system when someone unexpectedly inquired about it and no sudden rush of panic to make me fumble over my words. I could think about or write down what I wanted to say beforehand. Plus, I was boxing myself in in a sense, so that there was no escaping the situation. I had to explain what was going on. I couldn't just leave the person hanging.

I hope that helped a bit!
