I miss my friends.

Thank u for coming to my TED talk have a nice night guys
Haha, Ted Talk. I like that despite all the negative emotions you're experiencing, you're still able to make jokes and see the humor in things.
A good way to get out of your head is to do something, use distractions, or talk to others. I know it is hard to see people right now, but you could try talking to a family member, calling a friend, or even calling a helpline (see some here) or Friendsline (they don't have trained counsellors and cannot provide crisis support, but they're available for a general chat if you need. See info here).
You might also want to download the app Calm Harm - it provides tasks that help you resist or manage the urge to self harm. See more info here.
I have some other ideas but I just want to see how you go with the above-mentioned ideas first .
@Maddy-RO Hey there! thanks for the suggestions I have been keeping in contact somewhat with my friends an a lot with my family. I actually have the app calm harm installed but I find it hard to use when I need it, but im working on it. I feel a little better today and im not gonna hurt myself again !! Thanks for replying <3
@WheresMySquishy Im not so good at the moment, but its alright. Im trying really hard to keep my shit together lmao... I just wanna get my nails done :'( Last night me and my dad hung out and played piano and sung and honestly it was the best id felt in a while
@Sammyye I'm sorry that you're not feeling good at the moment, but well done for carrying on!
I've never gotten my nails done at a salon, but I really miss being able to go to the shops and sport centres. I haven't done those things in ages. I didn't know how much I liked doing those things until I was suddenly unable to.
I'm so glad that you and your dad got to have some fun together! It's so cool that your dad is into music and you can share your love of singing and piano with him. My dad used to be part of a choir, but the kind of music we're into are different.
