First time self-harming


Recommended Posts

I am having a really bad bout of anxiety and depression and I just self-harmed for the first time. I scared myself and I'm upset that I did it, and I feel guilty about telling my loved ones even though I really feel like I need to talk about this. It's not life-threatening but I'm scared and upset and need to talk.

Welcome, Flower. I'm so sorry you're going through this. I hear you that it's frightening. :( Is your family being supportive or have you not shared this with them yet? Has anything specific happened recently that may have increased your anxiety and stress? Does anything help you to feel centered, such as deep breathing or counting? Do you have a therapist you might schedule an appointment with?

I think it's good that you reached out and I hope you continue to do so. I hope too that you are feeling calmer now. 

Take care, Flower.
