    Healing Scars *TW*

    1
    Hello! I recently cut a phrase into myself that I don't really want to last forever. I have been putting neosporin on it, and I bought mederma. I was wondering how soon I could use the mederma, and also wondering if you guys have had any success with it. Or, is there anything else you guys have used? Thanks! :)

    Not sure why...

    1
    I don't know why but I've been having urges to burn myself. I take something metal and hold it over a fire then hold it onto my skin. It doesn't make any sense. Also I want to pull at my nails until they bleed, and pull my hair or scratch my scalp with something sharp. I don't really know if that counts, or why I started doing it. Any thoughts/advice?

    I need help

    Hey. I just joined this group and I just hope that someone can help me. I'm 16 years old and I've been cutting myself since I was 12. Everytime I say it's the last time and I never keep my promise. I've been proud of myself because I haven't cut for a month but today something happened and I did it again. I am suffering from depression and i don't think I want to stop cutting but I feel like I...

    Sharp as nails

    Hey, I'm new and I need help. Instead of using a razor I use my fingernails to slice my skin. I don't know what's wrong with me. I can't be happy because if I'm not sad, I'm mad, and if I'm not that, I'm numb. Just looking for some support from others who have gone through the same thing

    I feel like if I dont cut for a few days then I'll just get better and I know that's not true but it's how I feel and I feel like I'm putting too much of hurting myself into my self-worth and I know that I'm addicted again and I know I should fight it but I really want to cut and I think about it and I think about dying almost all the time and I just don't know what to do, please help.

    Struggling so much

    hi I'm new to this support group- just joined since I thought it'd help.   I am also struggling with self harming.   Been really wanting to cut myself.   I enjoy the relief that it gives me.  For once in my life I get to forget about my struggles when I cut.  I realize it's not the healthiest thing to do.   I did start talking to a counsellor- had my 3rd session on Friday.  Seeing them...

    What Do I Do

    I've been hurting myself for almost two years and at first it wasn't bad I'd just take something sharp and poke my leg but then as my depression got worse I would hurt myself more and then it wouldn't be as bad and then it'd be bad again and recently it's been really bad and I cut almost everyday and I think about it all the time and I think I'm getting addicted again but I can't just throw away...

    Concerned

    3
    Last summer I first started to self-harm  and it got bad in September and even worse in April. A few people knew but didn't care or do anything about it. I cover it up with bandaids and people will ask what happened since I have a bandaid but I lie because I don't want my parents to know. I have been free from doing it for almost 3 months but still notice it everyday. I am struggling more than...

    No tools

    3
    I can't take away tools from myself because I've started just hitting myself physically with fists (or whatever portable dense object is nearest), sometimes to the point of week-or-more bruising. I also sometimes feel like there's no other option for me because there doesn't seem to be any other expression that will get out the negative energy I have in me that causes me to lash out on my body. I...

    I can't hold on much longer.

    Well I don't want to talk about why, but I've been cutting for god knows how long. (somewhere between 1 and 3.5 monthes). I tried burning once, but I was worried my parents would hear the sizzling. Long story short I haven't cut in over three days because I lost my razor even though it was in a super good hiding spot I don't know where it went (Im stupid, don't hate) and since I haven't cut or...

    I feel like I need to self harm

    hi, this is my first time on here but right now I am really needing some help. So I was released from a recovery center two weeks ago and I have been doing pretty good so far until now. I felt like I needed to self harm last night and I still do. I want to but then I stress it about doing it and then I do it and then feel even more anxious about someone finding out. And since it's summer, there...
