You need to find someone you can trust that is a good listener and will not freak out! My daughter's friend used to cut pretty badly and I gently spoke to her about it one day, telling her (and showing her) I had a first aid kit that we could use every time it happened and so long as she came to me and we could talk, I did not tell her parents.
In time the cutting stopped, she just enjoyed the talks.
Life honestly gets better, you never know what tomorrow will be like - your life is PRECIOUS and it has a purpose - you are here on earth for a reason - you just haven't found out why yet. I do know it is not to end your life. High School, Midlife Crisis - there are times in everyone's lives where things aren't where they should be or how we expected. You just have to know its a phase, like one day you'll look back and say, wow 2012 was a hard year for me, but it didn't break you and you got through it. Sometimes the worst things that happen to us, shape our life's perspective. I have been assaulted, I now counsel women who have been assaulted. I had three miscarriages throughout my marriage and also lost a baby right after birth, and I must get calls at least once a week asking if I can talk to someone's friend who went through the same thing, or who is looking into adoption and wants my advice. Do you know what I mean? Maybe you will be the right person in someone's life (or lots of someone's) who can see their pain when no one else notices. It could be your journey.
I'm glad you came on here but I hope you can find someone in your life who you can share your feelings with. And, go to your doctor as well, you may just have a chemical imbalance and need some help to move away from those negative thoughts.
One more idea - volunteer somewhere - get your mind off your troubles and focus on others - it honestly works.
I'll be praying and please feel free to write again
wow, that was a really awesome response. It even made me think, a little. Good on you for this awesome response. Sorry, I just had to say.
i love it when you talk gently with your child's friend ^-^
Call someone. Now. They won't mind that you woke them up once you tell them what's prowling around in your head. Pray. To whoever or whatever even if you don't believe. I've been there.. 4 times exactly. Every time won me a trip to the hospital and a week long visit in the psych ward. I cut too, plus recovering alcoholic, anorexic, and general basket case. I got help, got on Meds and am thankful for every single day now. Life can be wonderful once you get the demons out of your head. Serious. Ask for help.
I feel you completely on that. Just don't end it. Don't cut too deep. The feeling will pass. Take it easy. do you take meds?
i hate my life tooooo.....maybe thtz the reason i'm here in EP. tryin' 2 nt think much abt life nd just go with the rollin' stone!!! the most tht i hate in my life is i'm a loser nd i dnt knw anythng else abt this life. i'm tryin' 2 find new ways 2 live this life bt i'm stuck in the mud...it'z true- i've got mud on my face i'm a big disgrace kickin' my can all over thee place!!! :(
I used to cut to. And I was even put in a mental health institution for a week. I beat it though. Cutting is an addiction. U have to treat it like one. If u truely want to stop, u should find a hobby and develop some coping skills. I know its hard but once u kick the habit it gets much easier.
You have give more detail in what is troubling you that makes you want to make such an extreme measure.

babe mail me if you want to talk ok. Hugs. It doesn't need to end this way :( xox
tomorrow is another day maybe just maybe things will get better xx
Call the psychiatric team. There are healthier ways to relieve your pain than cutting. Try eating some chocolate and doing some relaxation exercises. Go to the doctor or ER and tell them you are having suicidal thoughts. Please don't do it. Get help and work through it. In a few weeks you could be feeling dramatically improved.
It gets better. Not the cutting part - that always sucks. The life part. Set a goal and ignore the negative aspects until you get there.
