How I feel while self-harming
So, my therapist wants me to do this, and I've been putting it off for a while so here goes.
Before, I have this horrible depressed feeling in my chest. I'm usually really really sad and I consider it for a while and I just wait until it gets worse and worse until I can't handle it anymore... Usually it's because I'm thinking about how I have no friends and stuff... or thinking about something i did that was awkward and how people must hate me.
During, I literally feel nothing. It gives me a break from reality.
After, I just kinda go on with my life. The feeling is still kinda there, but less so than it was before I cut.
Sorry if this post was kinda weird and depressing... I'm not in the best mood at the moment.
