Honestly, if that's what you need I think you should have it. Your mother would regret not telling someone if you ended up killing yourself. On the other hand, self harm isn't necessarily a precurser of suicide or (paticularly) homocide. If you don't need to be in a mental hospital, then it could be a problem. It's a tricky situation, it really is.
Cutting and scratching? Well, ow. I've always associated the act with emos o.o
I don't cut myself, never have. But, I, uh... I scratch myself with a mechanical pencil. ... yeah.
but i would be cut off from her and yall and my boyfriend and my friends
Super dont b embrassed.... when im in school and i have no way to kill the urge i do the same with my pencil or nails
i sometimes cut my arm with my nail file (yes this actually works) but then i discovered tht i if i filed and smoothed out my nails with the nail file, i dont feel lik i need to cut
Yall should try this if u cant find a way to kill the urge
SuperFloree: self-harm is self-harm, no matter how small it may seem. We're here for you if you need anything!
Keirsten: I know, but it wouldn't be forever, would it? There was one time that I had to go to a hospital for two weeks and I was cut off from everything. It felt like a really long time, but it really wasn't. I needed it and now I'm glad I ended up going. And good idea about the nail filing thing!
Eh, I'm fine guys ^^; I just have kinda erratic emotions sometimes. Like, I get a B on my test and I turn suicidal XD Just today a girl kept on calling me "Glasses" cuz she didnt know my name (and after i told her it, she couldn't remember) and it annoyed me so much that I swear if I haven't had left sooner I would've punched her in the face.
The pencil thing's nothing to worry about. It just distracts me long enough until I get outta my pi.ssy mood =w=
That's usually what self-harm does is distract the person from an emotion and it's not a very good coping mechanism (sorry that I sound kind of motherly).
ay, it's the only one that works for me. If i don't it lasts even longer and it's just a pain in the butt. It's fine though, i mean, most of the time i try not to leave a mark, and the worst i can get is a red line that'll heal in a few days.
Again, self harm is self harm. You don't have to, say, chop your arm off to be self harming (mild exaggeration xD )
XD true, but im still fine.
Alrighty, but the offer still stands. If you think you need support, we're here. C:
You could always try venting in this thread, see if that helps.
