    One.....(Trigger warning...)

    From the beginning of 2016 I was sent into a massive relapse of self harming. Last month on this date (1/19/17) I was suffering so bad emotionally and no one seemed to have noticed. I wasnt able to express how I felt and I no longer had any friends to talk to me. While I was online surfing for random things, I came across this symbol that meant 'Healing'. Thats when I thought to my self that I...

    self harm

    Hi I'm a new member here.  I've been cutting for over 10 years.  I was clean for about a month and I cut last weekend. I tried to find a local support group but unable to find one, so I decided to join this online group. Self harming is very addictive. I've been trying to stop, but it's very difficult. I've tried different alternative methods to cope with my negative emotions, but nothing has...
  • Today was a great day. I felt so sick these last few days so I was happy when I woke up and could breathe out of my nose. I went into work and was helping run self-checkout when another cashier asked me to help him find an item for a customer. The customer was very nice. He asked me how I was doing and before I even answered he started talking. "I dont know anything about you, but what could make...

    What should I cut with?

    I've been cutting for several months now and I have been using scissors. Just like the tip of it to scrape myself which does not make for a very clean cut. I dont really have access to a razor blade or knife or anything like that. Are there any suggestions on what i could use that would give me cleaner cuts that heal better?

    The other day was a good day. Things were nice, but yet I still have the urges. I feel like an addict but its not to drugs or alcohol, its to self harm. I have tried to stop but now I am at the point it doesnt bother me. But I have no clue how to stop. I am on medicine  and I have a profesesional I talk too but I have no idea how to even stop this wreck of a train. Any ideas?

    I have been cutting for 14 years now. Started when I was 12. I was doing really well for about 5 years then I started going to therapy again. Diagnosed with PTSD for a traumatic event that occurred when I was 14. Relapsed a couple weeks ago and I can't stop thinking about cutting. It's getting so hard and I'm really struggling. I need support.

    My mind is my worst nightmare

    Trying to push through the urge to slice my vein open is harder than most people think . I have been trying to push through it at the moment. I don't know what else to do. My life is up in the air at the moment . I'm currently in recovery from cutting it has been 7 months with one release .

    Does anyone else find sad songs both cathartic and triggering. I've been listening to them often when I study and I find that they help me feel, but also make me need to cut to get rid of the emotion brought on by the songs. I want to feel but then once I do all I want to is get rid of those feelings.

    How can I stop the urges I feel to harm myself... lately I have been tempted more and more as my living situation gets worse and worse... I'm trying to stop these urges, but if things don't get better I may do something stupid... I don't know what to do anymore. I am trying my best to get my mind off of it or to seek some sort of help to get over it. I seek counseling, I use every form of safety...
