My boyfriend and I trigger each other to self harm. Please help
We both cut ourselves.
Not with each other or anything weird.
We are just all each other has to talk about these kinds of things.
I was recently prescribed Prozac and he is severely depressed, but no longer on any sort of medication.
He found out I cut and a couple weeks later, he cut up his arm badly. I looked at it and had the strongest urge to cut. The next night, I did and I have deep cuts in my upper arm.
We both have a lot of mental problems and can be down right crazy around each other.
When we fight, they are intense. Nothing physical, just intense if that makes sense.
We love each other very much and have been together almost two years.
I just don't like that we trigger each other.
What should we do?
