    Everything seems to trigger my urge to harm myself specially lately. My depression is getting worse which makes the urges stronger. I have been harming myself almost everyday for the past two to three weeks, and nothing seems to take that away. I punch my hand or hit it with something, it hurts but I still do it. My family has no clue to what I am doing to myself. Only my therapist knows and soon my psychiatrist will know when I see her on Tuesday. I do not know how to stop. I don't know what to do.

    You ask your therapist and your pdoc to get you the therapy you need to stop and to get you on some meds to help alleviate depression hun you ask them to help you to keep safe hugs

    if they can't see, then they're a bit blind.
    if you want them to know, tell them.

    It sounds like you are having a tough time right now; I'm sorry for that. I'm glad you reached out to post. Self-harming can be kind of addictive, I think, in the sense that it becomes the only thing that makes one feel better. It's great that you reached out and told your therapist and are planning to tell your psychiatrist. Being honest and open with them will ensure you start to get where you want to be. Next time you feel like self-harming, you can always try an alternate self-soothing method. What works for me is wearing an elastic band on my wrist and snapping it and doing a crossword puzzle (believe it or not). Good luck, hang in there, and keep posting. :hug:
