      I have told them but all they want to do is listen. I know thats what coucilors do but because I dont know what to say about it all then we dont seem to get anywhere. I know what started it off but dont know how to control it.

      Ok Twpy this is obviously troubling you or you would not be on this forum.

      Its troubling me reading about it.

      If you want to get to the bottom of why you are harming yourself you MUST speak to someone teacher doctor parent friend anyone

      You are not going to get better by burying your head in the sand

      This is not normal behaviour and if you want to get better you have to start talking something must be making you want to cut yourself

      Take Care

    What do u mean by self harm? Like pinching yourself? Cutting yourself?

    I pinch myself and grab my skin in a panic...I have no control over it...I'm so scared it's like I'm doing it to focus on the physical pain instead of the mental.

    Hi there definitely go back to your Dr and stress how bad you feel and what you are doing. I used to scratch, pinch and dig my nails into myself when I was in the grip of anxiety but it's not the answer. Talking does help but you need to tell them exactly how you feel and you need their help. Hope you feel better soon. We have all been at a bad stage with anxiety maybe not doing the same things but honestly you will come out the other end. You'll get there. cheesygrin
