    Don't know why I'm doing this. I'm stuffed, every thought is of how to hurt myself. Services aren't interested even though they know everything. No one really cares, they don't but I am always alive the next day. Why can't I just go?

    (This is long and kind of pointless, it's just something I wanted to share) Yesterday I was feeling really suicidal in the morning and I thought I would hurt myself. My mom came in my room and told me we should clean it up since I'm moving out soon, she wanted me to throw away everything I don't...

    Another computer crash

    Just letting everyone know, I won't be posting much for a while, our main computer crashed hard and it's hard for me to type on this little tablet. So I won't be posting too much untill we can have the other computer repaired. I'll still try and check in and lurk around. Take care everyone. :peace:

    Could this be OCD or something else?

    I have really bad issues about posting anything online. I'd be obsessively fixated on whether or not I typed something wrong (not wrong in the grammatical sense, but wrong in the- did I say something offensive, or hurtful, or damaging type way. It usually happens if I talk about something more...

    intentionally pushed everyone away today.

    When I relapse nobody wants to remember or here those memories but me simply posting an old song or a reminder of a gathering where I divulged info is wiped away as is any future attempts of me away from that reconnecting with family and old friends. By tellingI wiped out everybody and they...

    Here it comes again

    i feel it coming on, I'm being told to SH, agitated beyond belief. The only way was to harm, want to really hurt now and afraid as I'm on my own. Scared to phone Cmht and I don't want to be advised to use an elastic band on my wrist. Don't know why I'm posting this as nothing stops me, I'm so...

Members: You need to feel safe enough to do this before posting. I suggest having a friend and confidante with you or nearby. It is...

    Posting the question in this section as the symptoms seem to link with my anxiety. I often feel really cold and shivery when my anxiety is bad. Thought it was hormonal for a while but it is quite different. I can feel cold and shivery even when the weather is really warm and brilliant sunshine...

    I think it's time

    I think it's time for me to admit defeat and stop fighting the illness. While I'm not suicidal or have any plans to harm myself in any way and I truly mean that. I have that intrusive thought, which is still there. The Dissociation. It's hitting my energy levels, I even slept for 20 hours...

    Recognising I have a problem

    Hi I have never considered what I do as self harm. Not because I don't recognise that I am harming myself for emotional release, but its not something I do regularly or plan. I only do it when im angry and its an immediate response out of sheer frustration and its not something I think about...

    I'm so confused

    I don't understand this :sorry: I'm not sure if this is like extreme anxiety or paranoia or if i'm just over exaggerating.. Every single night this happens. I usually don't get any sleep at all and this has been going on since I was like, 10. I'm older now, but nobody has helped me! Every night...
