"in a mental hosiptal so i dont kill myself or others" were their words so.....
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.
XD i could, but a lot of the things id vent about would sound stupid. Plus, i dont even really know what there is to vent about. I have an awesome life =w=
^ Just realized that sounded kinda narcissistic. What i mean is, i really dont have any problems in my life at all. Got a loving family that's 100% together, got awesome friends, at a good school, seriously like, there's nothing wrong with my life. At all.
That doesn't make your problems any less important.
Like I said, don't really have any problems ^^; Like,if I vent here it'd be like "DUDE I HAVE A FREAKING B IN ENGLISH AND AMG LIKE ROMEO AND JULIET'S A PAIN IN THE BU.TT AND WHY WONT IT GO UPPPPP" or something. I'm just mentally weird.
Oh, well probably other threads can take that kind of complaining. Still, the offer is open.
Not that people need an invitation to post on this thread. xD
XD yeah im okai.
