  1. Why do I get anxious, or numb, or an itch on my wrist where I used to cut whenever I see something about suicide? Or a self harmer in a movie? What can I do to control myself, my hands from scratching the shit out of my wrist?
  2. Selfish?

    So let me just start by saying that I haven't talked about my struggles with anyone. It started in September. The only reason why I know it started that month was because I was looking for a place online that I can rant and express the way I felt without anybody knowing who I was. Thats when I luckily ran into this website and have found it, kind of helpful. It has been the place where I can talk about whatever I'm going through emotionally. It's a little safe haven. Yeah, I know I don't have a lot of post so it seems like I don't really use this but I do. Sometimes I just held back on posting some things and thats because I just have A LOT to say but I never know how to explain it. Anyways, I'm going on and on. So like I said, I haven't talked to anybody about my struggles until recently... I was having a phone conversation with my boyfriend who is also my best friend. I can talk to him about anything and he knows how to make me feel better. So I started asking him, "Are you okay?" since he gets sad about life (but not to my level which I'm grateful about.) He told me he does but that he gets out of that funk because he knows that he's working really hard for a better future and he has everyone he needs. He told me some days look gloomy but they won't last... I wanted to hold back on what I wanted to tell him but I couldn't. I told him, "Look, I'm going to tell you something and I don't want to hear any advice, no judgment or anything.. just listen to what I have to say." He told me okay and just waited for me to tell him. I said, "I'm not okay, I haven't been okay since September. I stopped being happy. I've been so tempted to harm myself and everyday it gets worse. I try my best to be happy and to avoid suicidal thoughts because I'm not living for myself, I have to live for the people around me." At this point I broke down because I just went of on telling him that it feels so selfish for the people around me to have to depend on me. I hate that feeling. Like if I'm not here anymore, I know my loved ones would go insane cause they depend on me to be there to support them or to listen to them about whatever they are going through. For my parents its that they need me for my brother, my best friend shelly needs me because she gets sad and I know that I can distract her from the pain or listen to her and understand her perspective. My boyfriend who has gone through so much that recently admitted that he depends on me for his happiness. Like it just sucks sometimes. People say that those who take their life away are selfish to do it, but are they really? Are they the only selfish people? What about those around us that make us stay? Our love ones don't understand our internal struggle that we face every time we wake up to the time we go to bed. How can you say we're selfish if you don't take the time to talk to us and see that we aren't fucking okay? Everybody goes through shit and sometimes its hard to not have the support of others like we have the support for them. So tell me who's the selfish one here
  3. Roses are Dead

    Roses are red Violets are blue, Sugar is sweet And you said I was too.  Gaining my trust To break my walls down,  Making me smile When I wanted to drown.  Spilling my secrets Whilst you kept yours, Expressing my issues You masking your flaws. But your lies were well hidden Your footsteps erased, As you pulled at my heart strings Wires frayed and debased. Now the lilies have fallen The foxgloves dropped dead, As your hands squeeze my heart And you messed with my head.  The truth all a tangle You trapped me where I stood, Manipulating my movements Denying everything you could.  You twisted my sentences To let blood bleed red, Feeling no pain yourself But letting me cut instead.  But a world without flowers Is not where I want to be, So maybe I should escape now Before I start to crave your company.  Picking dead leaves Gravestones breathed out, Slitting my wrists That's what this is all about. Losing a battle With myself and the world You spurring me forwards So I just gave up and left.

  24. Hey... everyone my name is Tiffany and I am 16 years old. I've been going through a lot lately...See I started Self-Harming when I was 12 years old... I looked in the mirror one day & I started crying... when I looked in the mirror I just saw a fat, ugly, worthless girl, so I started starving myself....for days and throwing up after meals on rare occasions that I eat... you see I was really skinny.... Then everything changed....then I started overcoming that & eating more, I started gaining weight....when I moved...then I met some people & started hanging out with the wrong crowd...I made some new "friends" and I trusted them, But they would take my pants off & throw them outside then push me out the  door & tell me to go get them.. they took all my clothes of & put me in a closet with some random boy I didn't even know, I was was only 13 years old! & they held me down & shot heroin up my arm.... so I stopped hanging out with people...I stopped making friends...I pushed away everyone that really cared about me & started isolating myself in my room... I would stay in there for hours.. sometimes I wouldn't even come out to eat...I felt like I was nothing I felt sooo worthless... and I would get hit, kicked, punched, cursed at, bullied, beat, & more...I was really depressed...I felt like nothing was going to change....I was so... Numb...I just wanted to feel something.. so I took apart my pencil sharpener, took the razor, went into my bathroom, sat in my bath tub & started cutting....As the tears streamed down my face, as the blood rolled down my leg.. I finally felt something.. I felt alive! but I didn't cut deep... When I was 14 I was raped and molested by 3 grown man...They hurt me so bad...I started cutting even more, everynight crying myself asleep! On the top of that I was being verbally  abused by my family... & everynight I would go to sleep to the voices of my mom & dad fighting....But when I turned 16 I started cutting deeper and on my wrists & arms... and I was hospitalized 3 times in October and I was put in residential...Because I tried to kill myself and that's where I am still and I barley get to see my family & my boyfriend....I miss them so much,..... I love them...and it hurts to be away frome them but....Im getting better<3
  25. I just told my therapist I was raped twice and now I'm sitting in tears, clutching a box of Ativan and trying desperately to resist the urge to swallow the lot. I won't because I don't want to die, or end up hospitalised, or be ill. I just feel so raw. I feel like a tree without its leaves. I feel vulnerable and exposed. I want to take the words back, I want to burn the words out of me, to bleed them out, to eat them down and purge them out. I 100% did not expect to tell her. It just... came out. I have my assessment with rape crisis on Tuesday and I'm terrified. I don't know what I want except to be heard, believed, validated... I feel physically sick and I don't know how to take care of myself now. What the Hell do I do?
