    Hello Everyone--

    I have been trying so hard to not self harm and I don't think I am getting anywhere I still feel the urges everyday. I am just so depressed. I want to self harm to make it all go away. I do not know what to do.

    Please help?

    My psyche docs said to me when I feel like self-harming or going on a self-destructive escapade that I should find something to distract myself. I told them that was a load of bullshit. They then said to me that in order to curb the suicidal and/or self-destructive urges that it was ok if I cut a little bit from time to time to help let out some of the pain. Their thinking is that if I hurt myself a little bit it will stop me from hurting myself or other people a lot.

    I'm not saying it's ok to self harm or that you should do it. Just sharing what my docs said.
