I am home alone Help ASAP - October 12th 2016, 09:31 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Triggering for ED and SH

I am home alone for an hour or more. I feel like cutting myself really badly. I also feel like B/P. I just feel like shit and need something to fix that. Even if I wasn't home alone I would still want to do it. IDK what to do.

What can you do to distract yourself? What coping skills do you have? If you need to talk, please, please feel free to PM me.

Hi Essa,

I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner, I've been out for the past 4-5 hours. I hope you're okay since your parents are probably back home so you might have done what you were planning to, or you might not have. I will never know.

I think when your parents go out that you should try and distract yourself. I used to feel the same way when I was having trouble coping and when my parents left me home alone. There were several times I was ready to do something more permanent while they were gone.

I know that you're stronger then that and you can get through the urges that you're feeling when your parents aren't home. A couple things I tried to do was either watch something funny on TV or a movie, go for a walk, play a video game, colour, do a craft, and go to a friends house. What you could also do is go with your parents. I know it sounds boring but it will stop you from doing something. You can ALWAYS message me, as long as I'm not at work I'm usually on or at least I check the site every 1-2 hours.

I hope this helps, stay strong.

Let me know if I can do anything else to help.

Brittany

I went to a friends house and spent a couple hours there talking to her. I did not act on the urges yesterday. I also went driving. I will have my license hopefully next friday. So i will have more freedom.

You should well look up Buddhism!

Jus google anything saying, 'what do Buddhists thing of....' those guys have cracked some awesome stuff through meditation. Meditation is awesome for getting rid of negative feelings too. I do it anytime I'm feeling particularly bad.

I'm so glad that you're okay and that you were able to reach out for help! Have you ever done DBT as part of treatment? I'm not an expert by any means, but your symptoms sound like skills-based treatment like that offered in DBT would be incredibly helpful!

Hey

I just wanted to say a big well done on beating the urges and getting through it and managing it in a healthy way! I know you have been struggling but this proves you CAN do this. I am so proud. Remember we're always here

I didn't see this reply either! I'm glad you were safe and found ways to cope with your thoughts. Now that you've made it through that urge you're that much stronger now then you were before. Did you end up getting your license? Having your license is always a good feeling. I definitely understand the having more freedom with it.

I hope you're still doing okay!
