    Feel so lost

    It's been a while. But I've hit yet another brick wall. All I want to do is self-harm. I've already hurt my arms and legs. Really don't know what to do for the best anymore :(

    Worst night in a while

    Long story short, I don't think i've ever felt so low, so guilty and ashamed. I'm not one to self harm but after going to work with my arms i actually feel a bit better.

    Depakote, MS, anxiety or combination?

    I shake a lot. As some here know, I've been diagnosed with MS & since then, the shakes have got worse. I'm suffering with anxiety I know that, but I have also blamed the MS for the tremors. It could also be the Depakote, couldn't it? I'm shaking so much, my legs shake, hands & arms...

    When someone scans/ looks at your arms.

    Getting bad, and getting bad may lead to getting good, which will be bad.

    Getting bad, and getting bad may lead to getting good, which will be bad. Today, another day in bed, day dreaming, snoozing, reading. Down, the pain in the chest just isn't heartburn. I've tried suicide once, I don't want to again, but I been thinking about it, because it's seductive and...

    Why does it have to be my arms?

    Ok... so I sh. I am trying to stop but sometimes it feels too strong an urge to stop. I am trying to minimise marks and scars, more for the benefit of my kids than anything. Don't want them seeing, or anyone else that would comment/give them a hard time. So I do it to my feet, abdomen, toes...

    arms are burning

    woke up in agony with my arms, I don't think they've usually hurt this much, maybe I haven't noticed, the burning sensation is a painful constant reminder of what I do to hide certain things, and how close I come to losing it all, oh the feeling.
