So recently I started self harming again I’m 23 now but I used to very frequently self harm in my teens and I’m getting back into that cycle and tbh I don’t really want to stop but I don’t want it to be visible as my job requires me to be seen so it’s literally the only thing that’s stopping me really going for it and I know im starting an addictive process again but I just don’t care. I feel so suicidal I really don’t want to live but I have a younger brother which is honestly the only reason I’m still here. I have no hope, no ambitions, no dreams I just want to self harm and stay in bed. I’m so angry a lot of the time. I don’t want any human interaction. I don’t want to speak to anyone I don’t want anyone coming near me. I don’t feel as though anyone actually understands at all and I don’t rlly want to explain it to anyone. Has anyone got any tips on anything that helps

Hi,
First of all you should engage in a therapy (DBT type), it can make wonders. How did this start for you?

You need to find hobbies and activites to get excited and meet people have reasons to happy and you defintely need to catch this before it gets out of control. You dont need to hurt yourself to be happy. You deserve more than that.

I first remember drawing self harm marks on myself when I was about 9 and then the first time I actually self harmed was about 12. This is the thing I have a therapist and she’s really great I’ve just reached this point where I just don’t want to try anymore I’m tired and I just don’t care but I don’t want to speak to anyone about it because it’s like I’m not helping myself and I don’t even want to help myself so I just feel like I’m wasting everyone’s time. Thank you for the links/advice guys<3
