    Cold Turkey

    I had to go cold turkey from my meds because my doctor won't fill my scripts until I see psychiatrist and I've been having self harming and other bad thoughts. I have grounding techniques and usually too tired to do anything, but it's constantly on my mind since I stopped my meds and alcohol...

    Calling the Crisis Team and what do they do?

    I went to the GP yesterday to talk about my anxiety medication. My previous medication gave me unwanted side effects of self harm and suicidal thoughts. We changed back to one I have been on in the past and although the number and urgency of the thoughts decreased, I did start to self harm in...

    My BPD ruins everything.

    Because I can not control my emotions I’ve lost jobs, relationships, even family members and friends are pulling away from me. I feel like I have no one and nothing. I just don’t know how to cope other than harming myself. It’s the only thing that helps but I want to stop. Any suggestions from...

    Should I tell my CPN

    Hi there have not been on the forum for a long time as I’ve been stable for a number of years but have just kept on browsing. Sorry for the long post. However 18 months ago my lovely partner died from cancer. I was on quetiapine duloxitine and mitazipine and I felt nothing. My body was totally...

    Feel lonely, abandoned, empty, etc...

    I have never been to a therapist so I don't know if my issues are because of more than just depression/anxiety but lately things have been getting worse and worse. I'm prescribed Prozac but it doesn't do much. My "best" friend (she's really the only person I talk to outside my boyfriend) has...

    First Post - First time admitting self harm

    I am struggling with self harm. In retrospect, I think I have always self harmed, just in a milder, non traditional format. And I have done this because I don't like myself or I want to hurt myself in someway. Now I am 34, almost 35. I have progressed to a more traditional form of self harm...

    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 :(

    What if you don't want to quit?

    I've spent a lot of time thinking about this and trying to talk it over with my therapist, but I feel like I'm getting nowhere. Everytime I bring up my self harm with my therapist she talks about "reasons not to" and everytime I can only come up with reasons that have to do with other people...

    Intense obsessive fears/paranoia about somehow hurting someone

    Hi, I've been dealing with bad OCD recently to do with an intense irrational fear that I will somehow become violent towards someone. It rationally makes no sense, as I have no desire to do this - although I definitely don't express anger/negative emotions in a healthy way and it gets bottled...

    I bait people into getting mad at me

    I was scolded a lot by my father and put down a lot by my mother and it is some sort of self harm, anxiety pattern. Then at least I know what is going on.

    Today has been a disaster

    Hello everyone, A bit of background to my mental health issues. I used to date this girl for 5 years, she recently broke up with me and has become very close to a mutual friend of ours. We were 16 when we first started dating, and we currently live together. One of the things that I regret most...

    E-pens yes or no

    My daughter wants a vape. She’s a self harmer and suffers suicidal thoughts and currently in a unit. She thinks it might help when she comes out. She’s never had an addiction to anything until self harm. What are people’s thoughts on this? Was thinking non nicotine vape ?

    This is my first time on the forum. Well any forum in the last 20 years to be honest. It’s been since the days of AOL-dating myself I know. For as long as I can remember I have suffered from depression. It seems to come in waves and the last few weeks it has come back as a tsunami. Every day...

    Hi, I'm Cherry and this year I turned 21, got promoted, began a degree and had my biggest relapse yet. I self harmed as a teenager, from age 12 onwards and couldn't seem to find any way of recovering. I would momentarily replace one form of self harm with other of self harm and often let...
