Not emo. But cutting...
« on: February 13, 2009, 08:04:35 pm »
I don't know what to do about this. It's like: cut, or self-medicate. And I can't do the latter. So what do I do? It's not like I want scars. It's just that I feel so bad all the time...
All the time.

Go see some form of counseling.  You need to talk about your issues.  Take care of yourself.

I'm in CBT.
I will have to talk to her about it on Monday since I showed my mom yesterday.

Continue with the CBT, then decide(with a psychiatrist) if meds are necessary to help you further.  It's not a cliche to say it's not easy....it's f***in' not!  Feel better.  Best of luck to you.

I talked to my therapist who does CBT with me and we made a contract with a list of a whole bunch of things to do instead of cutting. I've not cut since, though I've really really wanted to.
Thanks for your support guys. It's so appreciated. Sincerely.

That's really great to hear. I know it's hard but it sounds like you're doing really well and that's something to be proud of. Do you know why it is that you feel so bad?

Partly. Childhood trauma, etc... But most of it is physiological.
