Thankyouu for the information i know i should tell my parents but its hard, i have told a friend who is trying to help me through it but i feel like i let him down when i relapse which makes me feel more guilty and leads me on to doing it again its a vicious cycle.

the first step is always the hardest. it was so hard to tell anyone what i had being doing, but i eventually told my boyfriend and one friend that had confessed she had cut too.

i do have a therapist who i see every week and i've told her that i've been harming myself, but i'm still too scared to tell my dad. i think he's seen the cuts, but i'm not sure...?
i WANT to tell him but i just don't know how, cause i know there's no easy way to say it.
auch, i'm just rambling on...yeah, i'm gonna go now.

i think this forum is a good idea, as to be honest iv found it difficult to really get help for my problem, what with it being a fairly taboo subject. we all need helpwith this, and if we can all talk about it, the more we can help one another. the best way to help is to talk ^^

im just glad theres posts for people like us who are searchimg for help, its nice to know there people who know what youre going through and want to let you know how to take care of yourself, especially sonce its not something many people want to talk about.

Please don't double post, use the edit button instead. ~georgiamay.

I told my friend about my self-harm and we went to a guidance counselor yesterday. The counselor called my mom, so I don't know who she'll take it yet :S

I'm not anything

"Take on me,
Take me home,
I'll be gone,
In a day or two"

Just a quick question, when you clean the blade to make sure theres no germs on it etc can you just clean it using your saliva or hot water etc? Also would using a strong alcohol like vodka work?

Soap and water is usually fine to clean it. Don't think saliva is sufficient though, it isn't always the cleanest of things. I would keep the alcohol to surgical alcohols though. Ethanol, 1-propanol, isopropyl. If you're going to use anything other than soap and water, something that's made for medical/surgical sterilization. Antiseptic fluids.


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.

I'd just use rubbing alcohol to clean the blades.

Water's dirty...


I have a question. |:

I've never really understood this.

Why do they have to amputate body parts if there's no circulation in the area?

I know you'd just be dragging it around but,

what if there's a chance it could regain circulation?

o.o;
If there is that chance they wouldnt amputate, they usually do because when blood isnt circulating it can cause blood poisioning and other problems

Ok so i told my mum about my harm and she went and told my brother so now i have no time to myself because she's terrified i'll slip up... I have an appointment with the GP next week and i'm going to see a clinical psychologist but i'm so scared. It's been a crux for quite a while, how do i cope without it?
Ps: sorry if this is the wrong place to post.

Thanks for the cool first aid tips, they're useful in all situations and not just this... but I have a question, how do you know when a cut is infected and what can you do to fix that short of going to a doctor?
