I'm really trying to stop cutting but I get so mad at myself 'cause I do it anyway, way too often. and then I'm really upset so of course I wanna cut... I don't know what to do when I'm upset except cut. and I can tell my bestie's patience is running out but I still can't stop. I'm such an idiot... and I'm gonna be a friendless idiot if I don't find something else to do...*bangs head on wall* stupid girl!

Sorry that I am repeating myself but....

you HAVE to tell your parents how serious this has become. Cutting is like an addiction and it is not something you can just stop by yourself, especially when it has reached the severity that you are at.

Please please please show your parents and get proper help!!!

Hello there,

Speaking from personal experience, it is very difficult to stop self-injuring on your own. The best way to stop self-injuring is with the help of a professional. You are getting upset that you can't stop, and you are being disparaging against yourself with your words and remarks, these too make it difficult to stop on your own. You realize you are having trouble with emotions and that is why you are cutting. There are a lot of different therapies to help one learn to manage emotions without cutting. But you need help to learn these. I agree with Chemar. Talk to your parents again. Yes it might make them sad, but they have to see your suffering and get you into some treatment. You can get your life back free of cutting. It is possible. You just need some help to do that.

Best

Junie

Well I know I really should tell my parents but I start panicking just thinking about. I'm havin' friggin' nightmares about them finding out!

It doesn't make them sad so much as uncomfortable. They just ask me what they should do anyway...

Your parents need to take you to see a psychologist who is qualified to help people who self harm,,,if they cannot deal with this then you need to tell another adult that can talk to them for you.

Doing nothing is not an option...it just perpetuates the cycle. You need to take this seriously....cutting can kill you! You could get a serious infection or bleed to death. PLEASE get help!

I hope you will talk to your youth pastor.

I don't know you but I care, and it makes me sad that you are having to suffer with all this. Never forget that God loves you. He understands even if no-one else does. I'll be praying for you
