Why can't I stop???

Posted , 5 users are following.

I feel awful have no motivation and feel so stressed out I'm constantly avoiding situations and not goin out unless I'm with someone!

I can't stop cutting myself I recently changed from scratching to cutting as I like seeing blood for some reason it relaxes me! Don't know why n nobody close to me understands why I do it. It's like it's and addiction now.

My gp has just put my anti depressents up so am now on 100mg of sertraline! 

I feel like my whole world is falling apart around me n I can't stop it! My 2 young children r suffering too because of me sad

    What causes you to feel this way? Have you ever looked inwards at your life, any trauma you have experienced and how that affects you today, and so on?

    Hi Anna,

    My advice would be get yourself to a phyciatrist ASAP cause you're  hurting yourself cause you says it relaxes you?, but there is a million things you can be doing to relax yourself, it's a slippery slope you're on, with 2 kids you must stop cutting yourself, 

    Sorry if I sound tough but you must get help now

    Before you do something worse

    Good luck

    Hi Anna,

    Sounds like you're going through a horrible time and the not being able to go out alone sounds like you're suffering panic attacks.

    Has your GP advised you to see a councillor?

    Has anything happened recently to make you feel this way?

    People cut theirselves for lots of reasons. Normally for attention though. Which is the wrong kind of attention that you would want. Other people cut theirselves for a release, like it makes them feel better for a short time. You need to get some life concelling and therapy. It should help you understand your situation better. smile
