Hey sorry to hear of your sadness. What do you think makes you feel like that? I know if I dwell on the past makes me cut. Depression is a arse of an illness it makes you lose yourself and isolate everyone else.

well i dont really know if it is depression but i wouldnt be surprised if it was. i guess its a part of growing up but um when i do give in and cut then it makes me feel better.

I think the only person whos opinion matters is your own. Because you self harm doesn't really mean you crazy or messed up . It's a coping mechanism for people granted most people have had trauma in there life . How do you self harm? And how often? Would you ever consider to see a doctor . I believe there's also a group called self harmers annomus if that would in interest you .

i do it cause i feel alone.. over the last 2 years i've lost most of my friends and now i feel like i'm losing my best friends over her boyfriend. and i never had a bf or anyone to love me. that makes me depressed Sad
i cut myself and just as scars were about to fade (cause i try not to go too deep) i do it again. nobody knows. i tried to tell it to my best friend, i told her that i'm really sad and that i think i need help but i never told why and what's really going on. i don't know how to ask for a help (cause i'm not close with my parents and i don't talk about my feelings) and i think it's getting worse Sad

Yeah it's touch when you don't have parental support !
I never told my mum she kinda found out when I was thirteen
She can't handle that I've got depression or that I self harm.
That's good that your not doing them deep I would maybe go
To your gp and say exactly how you feel I think without
Medical intervention things will not get better for you.

Please feel free to message me anytime!
