Have you spoken to your doctor? How would you feel about seeing a counsellor?

I don't really know what to suggest apart from explaining your stresses to your doctor again and see if you can get a referal. I guess you could wear an elastic band round your wrist and whenever you feel like hurting yourself, just pull the elastic band and let it go..etc There are many users here, who unlike me, have gone through this and will be able to help you.

hey huni

well i've been self-harmin for four years and cutting for about a year so i know how you feel. Recently ive been trying to stop and its been nearly 3months since i last cut. Ive found what helps me most is picking up the phone and dialing one of my friends and just having a good long talk.. it doesnt have to be someone who knows you cut, just say that you fancied a chat or something... the other thing is write down how you feel and then rip it up.. for some reason this really helps me.

Hope everything gets better
feel free to PM me

Hey..

I used to scratch myself for hours till it bled...coz the pain felt relieving. I did this for years, until i found punch bags. It is the biggest stress relief ever it really is. And it keeps you fit, whenever you're upset turn it to anger and just smack the punch bag until your muscles are just knackered, im getting one hung up in my garage. And also Jess1234 is right..writing things down helps A LOT i do it all the time. I write songs/ poems /diary entries everything and then just tear them up.
There are so many things you can do to stop it.
Love

Hi Megasweet_shaz!
my heart goes out to you! its such a shame that your soing this to yourself, you really need help! i'll help in any way i can, sweetheart.

i had a rough childhood and i was self harming for as long as i can remember. i started cutting myself when i was about 12 and i don it for years. people told me it was bad but i didnt understand, i couldnt see what was so bad about doing something to myself like that, and i didnt stop for years. by the sounds of it, you've done it for a while too.

i think it is a brilliant thing that you have realised what you are doing to yourself, absolutely brilliant! you've made the first step! one thing that helped me stop (I was doing it for about 6 years) was to think "actually, if i cut myself someone will have a go at me and i cant be bothered with people feeling sorry for me."

maybe try that?

also, i used the elastic band trick, it works a treat!! and one day, someone saw i had an elastic band on my wrist, and, not knowing what it was for, twanged it really hard as a joke. i didnt like it. thats when i knew things were getting somewhere!

even now i still feel like cutting myself sometimes, but it doesnt help anything. i've recently met a lot of new people and when they see my scars they ask me about it, and i go all embarassed. they can see the pain i was in, and its my past and my old pain that i would rather keep to myself. if you cut yourself, people can read you like a book.

i also got into the habit of seeing my friends more often, and telling them how i felt, and when i finished telling them, we would mess around and have fun! laughter is the best cure.

those were some of my ways, but you need to find your own personal coping strategy. i hope everything goes well for you! let me know how your getting on, ok?

good look sweetie and sorry about the length!!

xxxxx
That's Me!
