Any Advice!

I`m a suicide surviver plus used to be cutter. Since i found my boy friend who as been with me for 2 years i havent cut myself. But everytime somthing happens i find myself taking comfort in holding something sharp again. Everytime i turn around i want to pick it up again. But i keep the urge away for Brad. It`s almost like a drug like quitting it but deep down you want it again. I wish there was a way i could just forget about it. Should i seek help or is there i way thats not exspensive that i can get over this. It`s not as bad as it used to but it frustrates me thats my first thought when things get bad. Anyone have any advice.

Re: Any Advice!

Hi Izzy, welcome to the Boards. I'm Kat. I have BiPolar w/severe suicidal depression and have been cutting for 30 years along with a past that includes several suicide attempts. The urge to cut doesn't really go away, you can learn techniques to help control it, but it's kind of always there under the surface, your mind knowing that if you're in pain, scared, hurting that the quick fix is always there. But it is possible to learn to "tamp" it down and learn other ways to deal with your inner demons and emotions. There are drugs that can help and therapy really is a good bet, there's an awful lot that a good therapist can teach you. That's what I would reccomend. If you don't have the funds to pay a private therapist, or insurance, you can contact your local social services office and find out what type of public services your town offers.

Re: Any Advice!

I deeply suggest you seek the help of a dr. so you don't relapse. It is so hard and yes, is an addiction. So, please be careful!
