(Care, Help, and Advice) Self-Harm Thread. (Warnings in OP)

Recommended Posts

Background

After all the times I experienced so many things, there's one thing that I did so many times, which is self-harm. I managed to learning about it, and why people doing self-harm. This is important for me and also so many people to take attention for those who doing self-harm. Also, self-harm is not suicidal thing, but also can lead to suicidal thing, after so many times doing it. I personally managed to stop it, so I want to help you if you trust me. Also there are other people that will help you if you share what you experienced.

 

About

Self-Harm is a serious thing that we need to take attention, it's small but now it's become bigger and also being issue. It also can lead people to suicidal, but let me say that it's still long way to do it. The best definition of self-harm is a way to let out the negative emotion (emotional pain, anger, frustration, sadness, madness, heart broken, feeling unworthy, et cetera) with self-injury. There are so many types of self-harms, but I recommend you not to search it. (If you want to know, I'll let you know some of them that I experienced in spoiler, it can be trigger for so many souls, I recommend you to read it as a reader, not as a friend or else. But if you want to put supportive comments, just do it!)

 

Personal Experience

 

This is my story. Back then, when I was high school student, I'm stressed and have so many things that I think, but can't let out of it. Because of that, I did one thing, scratching my knee until it's bleeding and keep scratching it until it's becoming bigger, and become a big wound that visible for everyone to see. Not stopping from that moment, I made another one to my other knee. I remember that I must spend three months to heal it into fully healed, since I keep scratching it everyday and so on, I couldn't stop to self-harming. And you don't want to know what exactly happened in my life, there are so many self-harms, I did it like hundred/thousand times.

Hopefully this thread will help people who either are currently going through this or have had thoughts of self harm. Dealing with such thoughts alone is never good, having a safe place to discuss such things is incredibly important.

 

A huge thank you to the OP and everyone volunteering to help users with these thoughts for all their efforts. As a staff member, my inbox is also always open for anyone who needs someone to talk to or just someone to listen to them.

Finally! A thread where I can share my story without people that are toxic. 

During Mid February, I was trying to overdose myself with Medicines. Paracetamol,Anti histamines, or anything that I can shove into my mouth and I'd fall asleep. I had nose bleeding for a month because of that. 

I was diagnosed with anxiety on March, and Pregnant on April 2.

I don't know if the world hates me so much. I was raped when I was 12, My dad would slap me everyday, my glasses was thrown in the air sometimes when he slaps me so hard. My ex tried selling me as a escort, And now, He impregnated me. 


The only person I was comfortable and felt happiness is when I am with my grand father, but he died 2 years ago.

I'm sorry for just seeing this because I'm so busy nowadays.

How are you now?

Are you still doing it?

I hope everything is okay for you.

Im sorry for the shitty things life has dealt you. No one should really have to endure those types of things but life can really suck sometimes.

 

How are you coping now?

And you said you were diagnosed, are you seeking professional help? I think finding a good therapist to work through traumas in your life is honestly essential. At least for me was. Its helped me come to terms with what happened to me and not let it define me.

My mother can't afford some professional help right now. But I'm trying to work hard so I can cure myself. I hate myself sometimes because of what happen.

But its inevitable. You can't undo things that has been done. 

I'm coping up with some temporary happiness, this things ease my mind. I like to draw,write simple stories, compose song or watch things like k-pop and anime.

I hope I can still hold on while I'm saving up for my treatment.

That's good honestly. Sometimes its the really small things that bring happiness that help us get through. And just know, none of hat happened to you is your fault. I know its hard to not blame yourself or think "I should've done this, then this wouldn't have happened" But its not your fault. People are just shitty, and it doesn't make us bad people for not being able to protect ourselves when they do horrible shit.

 

I also think its incredibly strong of you to be working towards getting treatment. I know too many people who weren't able to even try to reach out, so I'm really glad you're trying.

I'm trying to be okay just for my siblings. My father recently left us. I'm 21, my sibling ages from 13 and 5 years old, I knew my mom couldn't be with them all the time because she works over seas. And in case if she's gone, no one would take care after them, that's why I'm still holding on.

I didn't know that this thread will be my need but here is my story.

Actually there are some reasons why I did it, and the main reason is I want myself to be gone.

And that defend me is my hope to be better, I didn't lose hope.

 

Self harm is serious thing that we need to take a look of it, so if you have any story to tell us, we can help you.

Hwaiting!

this thread is a really beautiful idea. I just want anyone who is struggling right now to know that you aren't alone, even if it feels like you are and things will get better eventually even if it seems like they won't. I grew up in an abusive household and struggled with self harm and eating disorders for a long time. I contemplated suicide so often that I was certain I would never live past the age of 21. I'm turning twenty-two in few weeks and I live by myself away from my family. things are better now. I promise if you hang in there things will get better for you too

suicide doesn't take the pain away!

It passes it to someone else
