Your not bad, no, your dad has put a lot of negative shit in your head so don't listen to him. Here to listen if you need someone to talk to @Fairy Lucretia.

Hi Lu,
Your not strange at all, don't listen to your dad.
Please don't hurt yourself, your not bad either.
If you feel the urges contact your crisis team or CPN or support worker.
Or talk to us.
You just have to break the cycle of self-harm.
Lots of hugs

I promised I wouldn't do it which is making me feel unwell in itself because all I want to do right now is go into the kitchen and take a load
it is THE only thing that calms me down ,other forms of SH don't really work

I feel awful for promising not to when I still really really need to
I just do I want to take one every day and I know I cant but I want to
I haven't for a while and its killing me to not

so I have to hurt myself even more for promising not to and then wanting to

I feel awful tonight x

Please Lu don’t do anything to hurt yourself, and you certainly are not an evil person. Think of the things that you have to look forward to. You have every right to be happy.

You're not evil at all Fairy Lu, quite the opposite. If you break your promise under these circumstances you're just human. All that said and whilst I do understand what you mean when you say that you need to do it, please don't both for your own short and long term health.

I was addicted to overdosing too at one time now it is injuring myself, all i can say is overdosing is not a good way to go, try to meditate and get in touch with your feelings as it is often a disconection with feelings that makes you overdose in the first place. good luck
