Re: what can i do, instead of cut myself

I would suggest finding a positive outlet for your pain. People cut as a form of emotional release, so why not channel that into something you can benefit from?! I know that it is much easier said than done, but it is the only way that you can begin to heal. When I become overwhelmed and feel the urge to cut, I write about my feelings instead of cutting. It doesn't always work, because sometimes the pain is just too much. But it's a start.

Keep posting!! Talking about your feelings with people that truly understand your struggle is incredibly theraputic. Good Luck!!

Re: what can i do, instead of cut myself

is that why you do it? to feel alive? ... break something... punch someone... anything at this point for "us" is better than an accidental death! i am no one to talk! i messed up the new year... but it's like... YOUR RIGHT! ... what else can we do... i don't know... i'd rather beat someone's *** then... no no... that's a lie (in a way)... i feel you on the fact to bleed... for me the scars... BUT! ... we just have to take it one day one hour one minute at a time! ... it sucks! BUT! ... you and me... that's what we have to do! why do you cut yourself?!

Re: what can i do, instead of cut myself

I have some alternative coping mechanisms that I've posted on here for some folks before, that my psychologist gave me. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll post em again.
