Thought this was the past.
I carn't deal with my feelings anymore i need to vent, i used to self harm and i'm getting urges but that i can handle, dont hurt anyway i feel numb.

I recently triggered off again i carn't sleep eat think i'm crying a lot i shake i'm angry just buried head in sand so to speak why carn't i ignore it?

I never had treatment years back just kinda got head round it, drink and drugs thank god lol ( sorry )

Really trying totally stoped drink and drug got on with myself but the more i try the craper it gets.
Dont even know how you could help just figured it could i dont have the bottle t admit it to the girlfriend yet and she all i have, there no family and i darent loose her.

Hi, welcome to the forum, well done on getting off drink and drugs you only mentioned it briefly but it's a big step, in my opinion as to how to tell your gf i'd say plan it out first, maybe even write down how you feel just so you have time to work out exactly how to say it. Also it sounds like talking to a doctor might be a good idea which can be hard especially if you don't know them (i keep putting it off too so i know what you mean). I hope things start getting better :hug:

just remember something i've learnt from personal experience regarding both myself and other people i know, it takes a big man to show his emotions and not hide it behind layers of macho nonsense (sounds cliche but it's true) and she'll probably appreciate the honesty and trust. Take time to get used to the forum, it's been a lot of help for me so i hope it will help you too :D

Hi Onlymebud,
Ignoring problems won't make them go away. They'll always find us and bite us on the backside.
I'm glad you found us. Keep posting! :flowers:

Hi onlymebud and:welcome:
I am new to this forum aswell but already since I became a member I have found good advice and people who can understand what your going through.

It is never easy to tell a loved one/someone you care about that you are ill, but sadly it doesn't go away by ignoring it, it takes a bigger man to admit they have a problem. You will find away to do it.

Good luck :hug:
