    i have been on my meds for about 3 months now, they never seem to work. had them changed 3 weeks ago still no change. everytime i see a knife i think i can just end it righ now :(

    i am on diazapam 20MG a day
    and now Propranolol as well , the doc says both those are anti depresents and the propranolol should help with my anxiety as i might have become used to diazapam :(
    oh i also take zopiclone 7.5mg

    You only had them changed 3 weeks ago hun. Give it time. They can take a few weeks to kick in properly.

    First off put the knife away, this will take some time. Most of the time each urge has a peak of fifteen minutes, you have to get past these peaks.

    I suggest you use the ice method to calm theses feelings down.

    If you do not know this method, press a piece of ice against the skin till it is uncomfortable.

    Go to a public place, a store, a mall, a fast food joint and stay there until you calm yourself down. You don't want to cut, I was a cutter and an over doser. Technically I succeeded but they restarted my heart and was 6 weeks in ICU. Cutting leaves scars that you will carry for the rest of your life, people stare at you when they see them, they ask questions and self inflicted scars are not something you want the whole world seeing.

    Please calm down and don't harm yourself with your knife. Knives are meant for cutting food, not cutting skin. Try a less harmful coping strategy. :hug:
