    I cut myself on the arm a lot. That much there's hardly any soft skin left. I wear a jumper all the time to cover it up, even when it's hot. Every time I feel like dieing I go and cut myself. Does anyone know any quick ways to kill myself. I hate life :( I just can't live it any longer.

    I'm so fuked up in the head I don't know what to say. I cut myself whenever I'm feeling suicidal, I also think this cutting is an addiction, I cut myself almost every night. I'm sorry I don't know what to say or do.

    I was thinking about telling my mum but that could be a bad idea.

    Does she know that you're depressed? That would be an easier thing to start with, and can lead to you getting help for your cutting. She'll probably take "I'm depressed" better than "I'm cutting".

    One of my best friends started cutting when she felt suicidal, sometimes to stop herself from attempting suicide. And you're right, cutting is addictive. I know I'm getting addicted and I haven't even cut myself for real.

    And I agree, start off with telling her that you're depressed.

    Yes my parents know I'm depressed all the time that's why I'm on meds. The medication doesn't really help though :( how do I tell them I'm thinking about suicide most of the time. They wouldn't understand me, they would just ring the police/hospital like they were going to when I ran away.

    But thank you for your replys, talking helps a bit I guess.

    I'm not an expert on meds, but I know that sometimes they don't work. Maybe you can talk to your doctor about trying a different dosage or medication? As for the telling them, please don't let them find out by having them discover you cutting or attempting. I told my parents that i have suicidal thoughta at the same time i told them i might be depressed, and now im seeing a psychologist. Are you seeing any kind of specialist? Maybe try talking to one, it might help you.

    I know how you feel about the whole others not understanding thing. Its a blessing to find someone who understands, especially if they can help you out during a crisis. Take full advantage of the support SF offers: if you feel really down, talk about it.
  9. They do that because they are afraid and don't know what to do/how to cope. Tell them not to freak out, that you just want to talk to them and, most important, that you want them to really listen. Tell them what's going on, you don't have to go into details if you don't want to. They will probably ask a lot of questions - and if you're not ready to answer them, don't. Take your time. Parents care. I don't know what sort of relationship you've got to yours, but you shouldn't be afraid to ask for help.

    We're here for you, and we're not judging anyone.

    i know this is way late but its been a while since ive been on here but i remember you from my old replies and stuff.

    im glad you have talked to family but im sorry the meds are not/were not helping. there is other medication to try if one doesnt work though. have you tried other stuff? you mentioned to your parents that you were depressed could you try and do the same for telling them you are suicidal? if they called the cops or whatever, they were obv doing it coz they were concerned and prob didnt know what else to do. may be just talking will help to solve some things?

    i dont really know what to say to help tbh but im glad you are still here on the forum.

    again, i know this is way late but i hope you are still visting here or getting the help you need etc.
