Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thanks for asking your question. Sorry you are having a rough time of it.
it's fine. i desperately want to stop, please could I have some advice/
Are you right-handed?
Which arm has the scars, the right arm or left arm?
So, you when you are feeling bad, like you need to hurt yourself, take out an ice-cube and put it in your left hand. Hold it for as long as you can. By the time you either can't hold it any longer or it has melted, the urge to hurt yourself should have passed.
Buy some cocoa oil for the scars...They will fade in time.
Get into some kind of therapy. Sounds like it would help if you had someone to talk to.
Hope this helps.
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX it helps too. i've been using bio oil for some of the scars but it doesn't look like they've faded. I don't know how long it will take.. also, where can you buy cocoa oil?
You might have to order it online. I'm not sure Boots has it. ;-)
ok thanks :)
No problem. Take care of yourself.
