Depressed

SienaSiena Posts: 15,493 Skive's The Limit
I just needed to make my own thread cause I seem to be the only one posting in the I need a hug thread and Ranty thread recently for some reason and don’t want to over flood it.

Anyway. I haven’t self harmed for a few days which I am very proud off but I’m very scared ive done permanent damage even tho I think it’s unlikely. My nerves are damage all over one arm atm. But they should rebuild but yeah my mind is over thinking the worst:(((. I don’t wanna like have a none working arm cause yeah I’m only 22 and if I don’t kill myself that’s a big issue to have

They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Hey Shaunie,

    No need to worry about posting on those threads btw - they’re there for everyone and you can use them as much as you need to :)

    Massive well done on being SH free for a few days, that is really amazing and I’m proud of you too.

    I don’t know much about the nerve thing but I think it’s normal to worry about the worst case with your physical health especially, especially with Dr Google it can seem a lot more of an issue than it will be for reality.

    Feel free to keep posting and reaching out you’re doing a great job! <3

    Like others have said @Shaunie there's no worries about using the Ranty and I Need Hugs threads since they're there for everyone to use as much as they need to! Anyway I'm glad you've managed to go so long without self-harming I think it's worth celebrating any progress you make. 🥳

    I don't think you need to worry too much about the nerves in your arms but it might be an idea to talk to your GP about it if that's something you feel up to, they'll likely know a lot more on the subject than I do. Feel free to keep us all up to date with how you're doing we're all rooting for you! <3

    Thanks guys. I haven’t self harmed in that way for over 1 week. So that’s good. Doesn’t hurt anymore
