I Cut Myself

I started to cut myself at the beginning of this year. I started to feel depressed and it just felt like the only thing i could do at the time. As the year went on my depression got a lot worse and i began cutting myself a lot more often. i would always do it in places that i could hide it in. when april came along i was in a house fire, my house fire. after that i didn't think it was possible to feel any worse and to top that all off i had the state exam that june. my life was in bis i wasn't eating at all i hide it from my family and my friends didn't catch on which hurt me a little. I began cutting myself regularly and more often. my depression was very serve, i couldn't sleep or find any enjoyment out of anything. after i finished the exam my depression slowly started to go away but i still felt the urge to cut myself. its gone at the moment but i still cut myself and im terrified it will come back only worse. i just think i need to let this out to the world. if you have any advice i would love to hear it. thanks for reading

Cutting isn't just a coping method. It's an addiction. Alternative: rub an ice cube on your arm instead

There is no need for you to chop soy yourself! I know it's easy to say because I'm not in your position. Have you tried going for counseling ? Have you tried reaching out to someone to talk about what's bothering you? Have you tried walking it off to distract yourself ? I'm sorry but it seems to me that you really need to give it a thought " you need some counseling my dear"....please try ok?
