Re: I am such an idiot

Be mindful of community guidelines when posting like this, your not meant to use specific language about self harm....



I know where your coming from tho. Can you try other ways to cope.
I know for me going for a long walk or even a run helpful.
There are lots of ways to try to combat the urges for self harm, what have you tried?

Sorry @redhead I forgot. Man Mad

 

Tried listening to music, was going to go for a run but got myself into a mess trying to find my clothes so I gave up, why is everything so stressful.

Re: I am such an idiot

Can you try deep breathing or meditation to calm down a little.

Another thing you can try for self harm is things like holding ice cubes, flicking rubber bands, drawing with red pen where u self harm. Or try to distract yourself from the urges with tv, music, exercise, creativity, talkin to someone.

Hey j95 - glad to hear that you have made it through this morning.

It might be a good idea to think about and plan what might help you next time you are feeling overwhelmed like you did this morning. Like, come up with a list of things you can do and have it readily available. It would also be good to talk about it when you are next at headspace.

Re: I am such an idiot

That first link is a good idea but not for me... 

 

The other one is a bit better.
