krayzeejen Posted February 8, 2007 Share Posted February 8, 2007 having looked at the posts here a running trend seems to be "If I were to give anyone advise it would be not to start" when talking about self-injury. Well - I'm at that point where you can give me that advice. Over the last few months the urge and need to hurt myself has been increasing. I haven't had anything like this severe since I was sixteen, eight years ago. I almost constantly want to stab / scratch and cut myself to the point of constantly being on the look out for sharp objects. Most of the time exercising until my muscles hurt helps (which doesn't take long as I'm over weight and very unfit) but it doesn't always help. My SO says he will leave me if I EVER do anything like that as he can't cope with it. He is a very loving and understanding person but he loves me too much to see me do that. This feels very unfair sometimes as a very close friend of ours (mainly his though) is always self injuring and to a huge extent and he copes with that. But then he manages to distance him self from her so he can cope. I was thinking about using elastic bands as a substitute but my SO thinks this is as bad as SI itself. As in it's the first step on the ladder. Any advice appreciated. I'm not sure what else to try at the moment. :sad: Thanks, Jen Quote Link to comment
