Hello. I haven't self harmed before, but I'm going through a bad phase and during my last one I had the overwhealming urge to. This time it's beyond overwhealming, I am finding it SO HARD to resist and not do it. Because I know I won't be able to hide it. My mum will see the cuts. And then she'll freak out. It's taking all my restraint to not do it. And I read the sticky about before self-harming and it has no effect, I can't help it. I just want to SO bad. I guess I'm just posting here to ask for help on how to relieve the pain, without resorting to that.
