my self injury has spread around two whole schools of about 1500 pupils. this is what happens when you talk to a gp. if anyone has anything to say about us being bad people, then you obviously hate the subject. so why are you here???

Thanks DocJohn

I am new to this PC and saw this room. Its been a few months that I havn't self injured and it's taking alot of doing. I am using different coping skills to deal with the sadness and it's helping. I'm not saying it isn't a struggle because it is but it's worth doing things differently. I am glad there is a place to talk about this subject and others who are fighting to change these actions. Thanks again Welcome to the self injury room

Default Re: self injury

I'm not sure if i should write or not. I'm out of therapy currently and slipped up today - met up with a plastic wrap carton with teeth. =( Haven't quite made it 2 months without cutting but was doing well avoiding razors. But i could feel it building and knew i couldn't avoid sharp things forever. This was better than some other options, yes? Not that it is good to cut, but considering.... I never know how to deal with the urges. I don't feel it is serious enough to call a crisis line, and I've never had to go get stitches or anything, so i feel silly asking for help around it. Plus so many people think cutting is a way to get attention - and it's not! At least not for me. Very few people know i cut and my mom thinks i haven't cut in over 2 years! OK i'm feeling odd taking up space.

Hi Kiya. Welcome to the community. You never have to worry about taking up space here. There's plenty of space to go around.

Thanks... I really ought to call a crisis line. I'm sinking ever faster into isolation & dispair and didn't remember to keep a life jacket. I just don't know what I'd tell them. I'm terrible talking on the phone even to my (former) T or minister. I want to connect in the chat rooms but i have to install the java update.... I don't want a crisis line to know who I am or think something troubling and send someone to my place.

until later... Welcome to the self injury room

I really like the little lambs in your picture =) they make me smile.

Kiya, please call and get help if you need it. Or set up an appointment with a therapist (either your former one or a new one). I am more concerned about your despair than anything else. You don't have to live that way.

Hope to see you in chat soon.

I'm tryin, Rap. Thanks. I did finally get an appointment - it's taken 3 weeks for them to figure out i can't pay *anything* (that's why I quit the last time), and that my dr. is adament (sp) that i be in therapy right now. But i don't get in until *next* monday. I can make it. it's only a week. I can make it. Just seven little days.
I found the courage to ask them if they do crisis intervention there at that clinic (since I'm teetering on the edge) and they do only if one already is set up with a T. Then one would call the crisis line.... sounds vaguely familiar...
I can't get the java install to work - there's an error, so no chat for me. Today there's been just a bit more rage, rather than dispair, which can be utilized as energy to keep me going.
One day at a time, right? Kiya

Hey, just wanna say thanks alot for this thread, it has helped a great deal and reading others posts aswell has helped me understand more about the subject. I feel safer coming on here with all the support than I ever have had before, even more so that it has encouraged me to be strong and try and but an end to it all... I now know that I am not alone. Its made me understand that I shouldnt be ashamed of who I am, and if I feel I cant stop it altogether straight away, then I can at least try and beat my record of how long I can last for each time and just take it one day at a time.

I also love giving support to others aswell, it makes me feel useful Welcome to the self injury room

Thanks, and thanks again, its realy helped me put a positive spin on it all and given me hope. Take care everyone, we can fight this together Welcome to the self injury room
