Helpful Hints
Okay, so I self injure, if that news to you, then man, you haven't been paying attention to my stuff at all, have you? I hope I didn't just ruin your day, but if I did, well, get over it cause I'm here posting this to help people. I cut and enjoy cutting, but I know its wrong and its a terrible coping method, so I've done a few other things to escape from hurting myself. Not all of them worked for me, but they might work for a fellow self injurer.
Okay, and now to the list that will probably be updated when I find more things.
1. Ice Cube
Taken an ice cube and place it right on your wrist, right on top of a vein and press down hard. Hold it there as long as you can and continue doing so until the feeling to self injure is gone. I'm not going to lie, it hurts like hell, but it does help.
2. Rubber Band
Wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it back every time you want to self injure Try not to do it so hard that you bruise, bt even if you do, its okay. Better a bruise then a scar

cutting and depression
cutting and depression are two bad things
they only do one thing all they do is bring
they bring scars and scars and leave you with nothing
but living can bring you something
death is not the answer not even this
life can bring you happiness and bliss
so please dont ever think that suicide is the answer i am living proof because i have tried to commit suicide before and i have finally realized that i have a better life here on earth and its how i make it but if you dont want to help me get through my depression then thats fine but please help me in some way.

Self-help - Depression
Thanks to my boyfriend, I've finally realised that I don't have to suffer because I don't want to upset my friends or family. I don't have to suffer because I think I'm not worth the hassle, or because I think there are people who have problems far worse than my own.
I suffer from tension headaches, stomach upset, insomnia, from stress and anxiety. I've gained almost two stone in the three years that I've felt my symptoms getting worse. I'm going to see a doctor next week, and I think I will be diagnosed with depression. I have a good life: I'm living in a lovely house with an amazing boyfriend, and people who care about me; I'm getting 2:1 - first class grades at university; I have a loving, and large, close family. And yet I continue to become frustrated by normal social situations and often find it difficult to motivate myself, often crying for no reason at all; to my boyfriend and I, it seems to be getting more and more frequent.
But, right now, I'm the happiest I've been in a very

Hello all.
My grandma recently attempted to commit suicide, so I'm putting
together a get well/welcome home package that includes a big card.

My family and I would greatly appreciate it if others left some words
of encouragement for her to add to the card to show that she matters.

Details can be found in my journal here: fav.me/d9ypmcv

This attempt has left all of us devastated, but we are pushing ahead
and surrounding her with all of the love and support that she needs.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

I hope I can belong here.
I still am in the darkness. Trying to find my way out.
I know that sound's dramatic and over the top but it's true. 
I have MPD, Major Depression, insomnia  and really bad anxiety.
I hate asking for help. But I don't want to be alone....
Please don't judge me. :icondepressedplz:
I just need a friend....or someone to talk to.. 
I'm sorry for randomly putting this in the comments.
