    [Venting] Self harm // Urges

    Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. I'm having really intense urges to self harm at this time, I want to so badly it's hard to breath. I just can't, I'm living with my friends right now because they know I want to self harm and ctb, so they don't give me much time to myself to keep me safe. The bathroom door does...

    [Method] Bleeding out?

    I'm ready. I'm MORE than ready to try to ctb again. I've dabbled with the idea of suspension or partial suspension but I really want to slit my wrists. Is it hard to bleed out? What complications could I run into? I know the "best way" is the ol' down the river and not across the street but...

    Self Harm

    I’ve been in a very dark place recently and it has become harder to cope and remain calm. I stopped cutting myself years ago but I’ve always been great at keeping it hidden. Nowhere visible by the public. I just didn’t want to look like “a cry for help”. I want to start again because I just need...

    NEED to CTB the bus tonight... failed throat cut/partial

    Howdy y'all I'm 23, female, from Australia. I've got a history of severe self harm (down to muscle), requiring multiple surgeries etc. Been inpatient in a psych hospital a few times - worst time EVER of my LIFE. While I was there I cut my throat with a razor I had snuck in, I was 4mm away from...

    Started Cutting

    I feel like I'm not cutting deep enough but also don't want to severely bleed out because I'm not in my own apartment and if I die it would be unfair to the returning tenants. Is there a guide i can look at, and/or videos i can watch? i am using double edge razors as my knife barely worked.

    Self harm - when are stitches necessary?

    Hi, I have a question: I'm a excessive selfharmer. My cuts are often gaping 1-1,5 cm (~0,5 inches). So far, I've always gone and got stitches, as they told me at the ward. But is this absolutely necessary? If not, do you know when it is?

    [Help] How else can i self-harm without leaving marks?

    Economically, socially, and physically, I'm in a good place. Problem is that there's been a niggling urge to destroy myself since I was a child that hasn't gone away even into healthy young adult maturity. There must be something wrong in my wiring; I don't view death as an escape but a...
