I just can't resist the sh urges, they're driving me slightly doolally. Why am I so weak, why do I just give in to my own urges but can dish out 'good' advice to others?
I must, deep down want to do it to myself, and what does that make me hey? Some sick twisted individual that wants to inflict pain on herself

You know, I don't think all this negative self-talk helps. :hug1:
You're not weak, sick or twisted.
You're unwell and you use self-harm to cope.
It's not crime of the century, so please be nicer and more compassionate towards yourself.
Just be safe and take care of yourself afterwards. x

I agree wholeheartedly with SomersetScorpio.

Please don't be so hard on yourself, as this will simply give momentum to the cycle you're going through: feel like shit; hurt yourself; feel like shit; repeat.

Please try to do something that makes you feel good. Focus on the good things. If you're able to give good advice, that means you're helping people, even if you can't follow the advice yourself just yet.

Please take care of yourself. :)

These women certainly know what they are talking about, I would go with what they say!

Good luck

I agree, don't be so hard on yourself. Have you tried distraction technics?
It's always easier to give others advice than to follow it yourself. I struggle with it too.
I hope you feel better soon

Don't call yourself weak. You are not. They're right don't be so hard for yourself. Just always love yourself to ease all the pain you feel

I hope you're safe. I just wanted to check in
On you. From all the posts I've read,
You just seem like a sweet, loving person.
We all struggle, but we have each other.
Keep posting, & let us know how you are.
Please be safe.

Thanks for the replies, I am very negative about myself, I need to work on that!
