thank you

im ok. havent had much time to cry of my 'mental problems' due to this pain but its always at the back of my mind and im always thinking about it even in physical pain !

i just want to recover fast and get back to normal even though my normal is not normal:p:

i did say to my mum ive been thinking about all the foods i want when i recover and she did say to me ''think of all the poor out there and the way they think about food'' so that made me :mute:

how're you?
Meh, surviving, just about...

I sometimes wonder what makes a person suicidal? Forget level of trauma for a minute, I guess it comes down to the individual's character or what? Like personally I'm not suicidal in any way shape or form but I have been through a hell of a alot of trauma in the last 2/3 years. Just curious as to what people think, not meaning to touch any nerves or out.
The idea scares me, I don't think I could hurt myself, I don't have it in me. I don't feel like there's anything particularly good in my life at the moment apart from the people I love, but work keeps moving me further and further away from them. However my solution to that is to try and get out of the situation by keep requesting a transfer, I don't think I could go to the extreme.

For me i dont think its my personality, just how my mind tries to cope with things i have been through recently. When i do feel suicidal its because i think it would make things easier for everyone, not just me, if i were no longer around.

:hugs: sorry to hear that. Does it need medical attention or anything? Try to keep it clean, infection is not good.

Once it starts to heal you could try putting bio oil on it to try to stop it scarring.

it's not stupid, it's just what you needed to do to help yourself. I'd never encourage people to cut but it's not for anyone to say you were wrong or stupid.
My counsellor says that although it may not be ideal it's just another coping mechanism and trying to go with out it if it's what you feel you need may cause may harm than good, so while you should really think about it before doing it you shouldn't feel guilt or shame if that's what it comes to.

I'd suggest talking to your best friend without the intention of telling her, but if a time comes up where it feels ok to say it then do. she might even appreciate something to take her mind of her break up. You can't go through all of this without the support of someone close to you, and i'm sure she wouldn't want you to.

I'm better now and I haven't self harmed since April, but it is it normal to still have urges to sel harm when I feel happy and well? Obviously it's worse when there's triggers but occasionally I just get a powerful urge to do it :/.

I still get urges over a year since I last cut, it's like an addiction, I don't think you ever get totally free of it.

Well done on not self harming since april

Awesome what are you getting done? if you don't mind me asking. I love looking at people's tattoos but I'm too fickle to get one myself. :p:

Ok... after a lot of cajoling from Vienna, i'm going to post in here... don't really like talking about this stuff, particularly around people i know, but... will try.

Thought i'd got rid of my depression almost exactly a year ago... basically, parents (well father), was an evil piece of work who totally screwed my head up, made my life a misery... self harmed very regularly, and... not sure how many suicide attempts, but a few... i thought moving away from there, to a new start with my girlfriend in Ireland was going to just sort the whole lot out. Guess it is kind of wishful thinking, but i wanted it to be true so much, and tried so hard to forget it all, force myself to be happy...

Needless to say, didn't work... am happier than i was, but... more and more recently, i've been up and down more, and sometimes feeling as bad as i did back then... Usual causes, work problems, relationship problems, a metric butt-load of stress... and whatever stuff from the past thats still not sorted out in my head (feelings of inadequacy, self destructive tendencies, too dependent on people, i'm sure that alot of people in here get it)... have started self harming again more seriously the past couple of months, and... been suicidal on occasion. Being in a different country makes medical help harder to come by, and... well, i'm not sure how long i can keep things up in this state...

Not really sure what else to say for now...
Hi, :hugs: Sorry things have been so bad recently. I hope things get better soon. :hugs:
