    hey hun, try to relax, put on some soothing music or call a friend. you don't need to cut take a deep breath, fold your arms, close your eyes and relax. Tell yourself that you are not going to cut. If possible, lie down somewhere. Stay like this until the urge goes :hug:

    Whooooa, hon. Calm down. I know it's hard to stop, but you can do it. Put in a movie, talk to a random friend about something, distract yourself. And once you stop for a few minutes it makes it a lot easier to keep from doing it for a while. Or find another way to distract yourself with pain that isn't so permanent. Stick your hand in some ice, take a really hot shower. You can make it through this!
