    I've been self harming on off for about 4 years now. It hasn't really bothered me up until now but some people have made me think about it...I really don't like what I'm doing to myself. Sure it gives relief, but it's only temporary. Yes it's possible to stop doing it but only for a short time. Will this ever end? I don't want to do this forever yet I don't want to stop. It's the only thing that helps I guess, but it's not healthy. It's so confusing >_< everytime I try to seek help from someone they get angry or awkward about it which makes me feel worse. It's like a cycle or something. I just wanna know does anyone else feel this way? It's horrible, it makes me feel so alone. I don't want to cut myself someday and never wake up. It scares me. Is there any other way to end this? Please help, I'm not very good at talking about this sort of thing but I have to try :sad:

    I have felt just as you do. I also have self harmed for years on and off and I know that when I open up to other people I get the feeling they are freaked out or get mad at me. Please feel free to PM anytime and know that I understand completely!
