    ((T.W.)) I was finally able to talk with my therapist about what happened, I have been holding it hostage in my mind for years and spontaneously told her yesterday due to the added courage of people on this site. After I sent the message I started to panic and get worried, I wanted to self-harm and stop my anxiety. I sat there for a while just staring at my blade and then I decided to message my...

    Frustrated

    3
    I recently was told that I was no longer being prescribed my anxiety medication, but without it I feel as if I'm going to relapse into cutting again along with restricting my food to be in control again. I don't understand why this is happening. Even when I'm feeling fine and on top of the world, my anxiety kicks in and causes me to want to hurt myself or end it all.

    I have been cutting for about 5 years and i used to do it daily. Since i recovered from a major depressive episode i managed to keep my self harm to once every few months but i still have the urges for no reason. I just don't know how I'll ever be able to stay clean because cant stop thinking about it and i cant help but loving the feeling, wanting to see blood and have scars. I dont want to feel...

    Hi

    I have no idea what I'm doing, so I guess I'll just talk a little bit about myself and we'll see if there is anyone who identifies with me. I just turned 27 and I've been self harming for 13 years. When I acknowelege how long I've actually been doing this I get a little overwhelmed because I was pretty sure that the whole thing was just a phase and that eventually I would grow up and I wouldn't...

    I feel a relapse coming

    My mother took my phone and saw my daily counter. She asked what it was for and I said nothing but she pushed and pushed. So I told her its counting how long its been since I last cut. Her response? *laughing* you dont have a stressful life, you have no reason to cut. I was hurt so I told her to shut up and she doesnt get it. Yet my brother doing it is understandable but not me. So I am currently...

    Here we go again.

    I've already read a few posts about going so long without harming and then suddenly you get the urges and they are stronger than ever. Well that's kinda of my boat right now. What I think a lot of people don't understand is the self-harm is an addiction. and with most addictions the urges don't ever really go away. you just learn to manage them and replace them with different coping strategies....

    i don't know what to do

    i have been cutting for almost 4 years now. i need to stop, but i can't. i always want to cut. every single thing will set me off. if i see blood, i want to cut. if i see a suicide scene on tv i want to cut or even kill myself. i don't know how to stop this from happening. my boyfriend now cuts, and i'm guessing it's because of me. and if he cuts it makes me want to do it too. i feel helpless.

    I have not cut myself in about 5 years. Yesterday I saw a girl customer where I work who had some fresh cuts on her arm and I just couldn't get it out of my head. I am here to admit that I miss it.

    Ive been having alot of urges lately. I want to self harm. Lately ive been self harming by cutting or overdosing on pills. The overdosing on pills are every night. I just want to increase and increase. Then maybe one day I die. I don't know, I just want a release and/or focus on something that it isnt my pain.

    i don't enjoy

    i don't enjoy it at all.  the things i've done and do, have been designed to make me feel bad.  they don't soothe.  they don't make me feel in control.  on the contrary, they make me realize, i will never be in control.  i am ruled by something no less powerful and cruel than a demon.  if i tell people that i am controlled by a demon though, the'll tell me to go see a doctor.  i know that...
