  • Anxiety triggers a lot if strange actions, like I bite on my fingers so I pull off skin and make them bleed. I scratch my arms until they bleed without realising I'm doing so and It all is down to my anxiety and depression. Yet if I don't know I'm doing it, how can I stop it...?

    So, I've been cut free for a while now, probably about a month or two, I did something today that I know I shouldn't have which was buying self harm items, the urge to cut right now isn't that intense but the emotional pain I'm feeling right now is, I just want it to go away quickly. I know I should throw the sh items out but I can't bring myself to do it. I just feel so depressed.

    Today was my last day of treatment for my eating disorder. They were also treating my self harm too though. I feel like when I have gone a period without self harming I have always done it for someone else, never for myself. My urges seem to always be there, they never seem to go away. I am really struggline with motivation. Self harming makes me feel special, different, and unique. I want to be...

I have even gone as far as to causing a boxers fracture because I put my fist...

    too much support

    Hi guys. Just a quick intro: I am 33 diagnosed with Bipolar II, ADHD, GAD. I have been cutting off and on since I was about 15. Well, on Wednesday when I went to see my therapist, I was in a pretty dark place. I wanted to cut so bad I could taste it. I agreed to see the crisis management team and we came up with a plan they felt would keep me safe. I say "they felt" because I knew I could be free...
  • Hi guys. I'm returning to DS after a really long stretch, and I'm hoping somebody might be able to help me.I struggle with self harming, usually it is cutting, but sometimes if the emotions are really high, I kind of go on auto-pilot (I have no awareness of what I'm doing with my hands- I'll be aware of conversation, or a movie I'm watching, but hands are out of my control) and just start...

    Cutting vs drinking

    I was wondering what you do when you feel an intense sadness, I don't know how to cope with something right now and I have nothing to harm myself with, so I've gone with binge drinking.
