    Trying not to throw two years down the drain

    Ive been clean for two years this time. I started harming when i was 12 and didnt try to stop until i was 16. It was off and on after that but it was never really that serious until my first major relapse. Since then every time i fall back into the pit its harder to climb back out. Im 23 now...

    I am really frightened

    Like I've said recently, I've been struggling with suicidal urges. I've noticed that I'm becoming increasingly frightened by thoughts and images. I've phoned helplines for support, and I am doing my best to manage, but it's really hard to keep going. I'm going to have a bath now, and maybe try...

    Lonely and suicidal

    I'm feeling very lonely. I'm feeling like self harm and other 'behaviours' are my friend. No matter what's going on for me, I can't get rid of my urges to take my life. I feel like saying stuff it and follow my suicidal urges.

    Murderous thoughts and urges

    There's a light around the corner

    After a couple of weeks of being actively suicidal, it is now gradually subsiding. I still have the urges, but the emotions aren't so intense. They eventually burn themselves out. I wouldn't have believed it could pass a week ago, but like my therapist told me today, there's always a light...
