Go see a doctor. Maybe meds will help. Sorry you feel like that and I hope things get better.
maybe go back to counceling
I've done so good refraining for so long. And now that I've slipped I'm having a hard time pulling my self back out. My chest feels heavy and my body hurts. I honestly just want to be done. I'm tired and don't even know where to go. My dr. will prescribe antidepressants and that's all.
The only thing that really helped me actually want to stop was imagining what my children would think. I'd never want to see them deal with their emotions that way so I found healthier ways to cope. It was a very long and difficult road and I still fight urges and resort back to self harm occasionally but I'm just to the point in my life where I want to take care of myself because that's what my kids deserve from me. I hope things get better for you! Feeling like that all the time sucks.

Is counseling an option? I've never been able to bring myself to see a professional, but the one at my high school helped me a lot. I'm in no way saying they're not a good choice, but sometimes it seems like medication isn't the most ideal solution for everyone. For me, they were more like a band-aid than a real solution.

I don't have health insurance at the moment. And I applied, but not in time so it won't go into effect until Jan 1st if it's even approved based on medical history.
I need to get the energy and organized to make phone calls. I seriously need outside help. It's not just about the cutting. It's about everything in my life at the moment.
And I agree about the medication.
Just Niki... We sound very similar up until recently. And keep up the good fight.
Thank you, I hope I can get out of this soon.
I'm sorry. :( I really wish I could be of more help than just saying that. I hope the meds help a bit and you're able to get back on track. Seriously, send me a message if you ever want to talk about anything. I won't judge, especially considering my own history.

You too! I hate admitting this, but I've been so depressed lately that I just wish I could give up. It's so frustrating. :(
Keep on keeping on girl!
If possible maybe try alternatives, I've heard getting two handfuls of ice and holding them until you feel it burn can help, (because it doesn't actually do any harm).

No, thank you for taking the time to respond. I PT'd you so I can get in touch if I need to.
