Can’t beat the urge to self harm

I’ve been suffering with depression for so long now but this last month has been horrendous. My behaviour has been out of control and I am hurting everyone around me without meaning to. It’s leading me to self harm on a regular basis and I just can’t take no more. :(

Hi and welcome.

What are you doing that is hurting others around you?

Thank you!

Just my behaviour is tearing my family apart, my random bursts of anger/irritability, turning to drink when I feel things are getting too much. And that’s when the guilt kicks in how much I hurt them, I then need to hurt myself. It’s a vicious cycle I don’t know how to get out of

Okay. Can you tell me how old you are and tell me a bit more about your anger and drinking? Are you mostly self-harming once you've had a drink?
