I've been cutting again, but I know that it will hurt the people I love..?!

Question: I've been cutting again, but I know that it will hurt the people I love!.!.!?
I used to cut, and I'm still a bit ashamed to say, it was for attention!.!.I stopped about a year ago!.!.But lately, I been taking to it again, and I've realized it's not for attention, I don't do it in obvious places, and I don't tell anyone, and I act happy enough!. But!.!.The truth is!.!.I despise myself!. I hate everything about me!.!.And I've been hoping, in the back of my mind, that I will accidently cut too deep, and kill myself!.!.

I don't want to hurt my loved ones, because I know everyone will be affected, even if I only cut!.!.

But sometimes, I feel like they should be hurt, for forgetting me, and because I want to show them how much I've been hurting, and also, I want to make them see, that I too, see that I fail at everything I want!.

I'm sorry!.!.
I can't tell my parent's or friends, they'll think I'm either being dramatic, or trying to fit into the 'emo' genre!.!.

What should I do!?!?

Looks like you are depressed!. You need to tell your mom or trusted adult that you need to see a therapist!. I had a friend who cut herself and she ended up in the hospital!. She wasn't doing it for attention either, she had just forgotten about all the beauty in the world!. You gotta find it for yourself, even if it isn't the stereotypical sunshine/daisies thing!. Find all the things in your life worth living for!

First off- get yourself away from the blades!. It is obvious that you know your problem and want to overcome it, and identification is the 1st step to recovery, so I think you will be fine!. You just need to find some help!. Your friends/ family are good to talk to, but I think professional help is the best policy here!. That is the best advice I can give as far as Yahoo! Answers goes!.!.!.

Stay safe and stay positive!!! No one wants to lose you!.


first think about it more then hurting other your hurting yourself!. You deserve better than this and you shouldn't do this to yourself!. The best thing to so right now is to talk to someone you can trust or a hot line!. Then approach your parents tell them how you feel tell them what you would like!. Most importanly it's absolutly not ok to cut yourself!.Why!? Because your better than that and you desevre better not for other but atleast for yourself!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Well, first of all you admitted that you did it for attention in the beginning and that's good!. But now, I think you should just go to the counselor and talk about your problems to vent!. Don't keep the problems bottled up, same with your emotions!.

Try not to worry so much!. Good luck!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

you need to look into counseling!.!.!.seriously!. if you don't try to do something about it now it's only going to get worse!. the fact that you know why you didn't it before is a step in the right direction!. the fact that you know if you kill yourself you will be hurting people you care about and that you don't want to hurt them is also a good sign!. you cut to feel something other than what you are feeling emotionally!.!.!.it reminds you that you're alive!. you need to find a way to get your mind off it!. find another outlet!. i used to work out and run a lot!. i got in great shape and quit hurting myself!. now i get lost in music!. counseling will help!. it'll give you a place to vent and learn new ways to deal with your emotions!. and you don't owe anyone on here any apologies!. i know how you feel!. it'll be okay!. good luck!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

you say you want to hurt your loved ones for forgetting you that you' been hurting to!. so there still your loved ones can you not talk to some one your mum or aunt perhaps someone that you can relate to , about your problems, there is obviously something going on in your life that's upsetting you, a change you disagree with perhaps a friend can help you, dont under estimate them!. and no i dont think you been dramatic , i think you just need to connect with some one who knows you!.to talk about what ever is troubling you!. good luckWww@Answer-Health@Com

your cutting because u feel numb, and the cut makes you feel something!. you really should find someone u trust and who will listen to you, u may feel there is no one but if u think hard enuf you do know someone!. for right now when u feel like cutting, say something positive about yourself even tho u might not believe it just do it!. this may sound silly but it is not really, this is a self esteem issue and finding something positive about ur self no matter how small will help in getting u to think more and more positive about ur self!. try baby pleaseWww@Answer-Health@Com
