Numbness with emotions

Every once in a while when i used to cut i could remember wanted to cut but it was almost like i shut myself off to everything when i cut. I cut and feel better then feel bad because of i cut and hurt friends that care for me. My mom would kill me if she knew even though i have tons of scars. I`ve stopped for a while but i`m afraid that life has been so hecktic lately i`ll just pick it up again. It`s like i`m addicted like with my ciggerettes. What can i do with out going to a therapist

Re: Numbness with emotions

Honestly, if your not willing to go to a therapist for help, it will be hard to stop because it is a form of an addiction. It's how you've trained your mind and body to deal with inner pain and turmoil, and that's not so easy to stop doing on your own.

You can try and do some research on the web on DBT Therapy, thats the way that most people stop self harming, it teaches you positive ways to deal with things as opposed to cutting or hurting yourself.

I agree with Katlin09, and you can also search the web for self help. But, you really should see a dr. so you don't relapse. Good luck!
