I used to cut. And I just want to get this out there. By talking about it on here, all you'll get is sympathetic comments. I know it's hard to go or help, but you really have to. I did, unfortunately I got sent away. But afterward, I got a therapist, got to meet people who were recovering as well. It's hard to take that first step. But sometimes you have to jump, and deal with the rest accordingly. I was scared how my family would react, and it's ok. They're reactions will haunt me. And it's their feelings that made me want to move on. Because I knew they loved me. There is nothing wrong with you for doing what you're doing. But it hurts your emotional health even more to worry about hiding it.
It will be rough, but I garuntee it will get better.
A website that helped me was
You can call, email, or send letters. It's all anonymous, so I got to let it all put without worry. And after a few months, I got the courage to talk to my guidance counseler, and you should too. It will all be worth it in the end.
I guess that's all, but I wish you all the best<3
I'm really scared to get therapy. Last time it was really horrible and uh.. doctors keep telling me to just take some more pills and deal with it 'cuz I'm a student and apparently my studies are more important than my mental health.
Your sanity is more important sounds like a therapist is being unprofessional can you not get a second opinion . I had counselling I found it helped I had to stop because of work but I think I'll have to go back because I'm really depressed and back to self harming.
Thank you for saying that, love.. (Is it ok to call you love? I just do that to everyone I like) I guess I should find a better doctor but for now I'm just popping pills.. Smoking constantly and drinking when it gets too bad. I dunno. I know logically that this isn't what I should do but I'm just too tired, you know?
i'm sorry to hear that you've relapsed .. I've relapsed recently, too. But strangely cutting didn't make me feel better this time so I've stopped. Nothing makes it better, really. Ciggies are the next best thing.
I'm glad to hear cutting is not an option for you sometimes its just so hard being tired and withdrawn its makes you even more depressed . I have been drinking quite a lot recently I was considering a.a but id rather deal with my problems privately I mean on here nobody knows who you are and can help each other.
