those who no me no im in in a ot of physical pain which is menally effecting me, the doctors are taking months to help and are not helping with my pain, is this normal?
Oh, Cheersrichard, hang in there please do not harm yourself, is it worth it? Seek a second opinion, please, please do not do this, it not only pains yourself but it effects us (me) too. Doctors should respond, I can't comment on the doctors who do not respond, its indeed a pathetic situation, please hang in, take care my friend & be well, my best wishes with you.
Why cheersrichard why would you do that to yourself why are you harming yourself i know its hard sweetheart but life is not that bad. You need to find the positive things in life that make you happy like your wonderful music when your legs are bothering you. Please call the suicide hotline 1-800-suicide cheersrichard you are a dear friend to me and i value your opinion so much. My father when i was 7 years old had commited suicide (shot himself in the head) due to stress of everyday life. It is definantly not a piece of cake to live in this wonderful world that god had created for us. Please remember god did not give you your life for you to end it so quickly. We love you cheersrichard please take care of yourself try to see a psychiatrist if you are not already seeing one cause this is not okay at all and we dont want to lose you! Your friend always michelle.
Some "cutters" are known to do this to relieve the emotional pain they are in. Your physical pain is causing your mind to suffer terribly and you're needing an escape from that. No one is helping you. Obviously the "system" is letting you down. Please turn this way Rich, turn to us, the people who love and care about you. Promise me you will never do this again? Promise you will come here and talk about this. Just when I thought I couldn't wait any longer, I finally got good news yesterday! I was just about to share it with you and I saw this on my pc. My heart is breaking over this. Please stay strong, write your feelings down again and again... You are much needed, especially by me. Don't go away like this.You are too good of a person to be in such pain.
You really need to talk to a Dr. I think this is a situation where only other cutters may understand why you might be doing this. I saw a show once when the person cut himself because he believed it would relieve pain. If this feels like it releases some sort of pain, either physical or phsycological -this is a problem for a Dr. .Sometimes it is done is adolescence for experimentation but some find it fulfilling and the reason is usually understood by the person who does it unless they confide in a Dr. who understands these kind of compulsions. I don't think it is a suicide attempt but some other emotional problem./ Please seek medical help asap. We love you here.
I have dealt with physical pain for quite a while (just found out a week ago that I have fibro). I have a tendency to inflict pain on myself and always have. I went through a spell of cutting my thighs, when I was a little kid I would beat on my legs until they were bruised all over (usually when my parents faught). I also tend to love pain (which is strange with the fibro). I actually tried to analyze myself the other day and I think that since I'm in constant pain that I must do something sometimes that hurts even worse so I know that worse pain does exist and that my pain is now "normal" for me. I did, however, stop cutting myself in my mid 20's because I realized the scars it was leaving and that someone would see them and try to committ me or something. Instead, I turned to more "acceptable ways" to hurt myself like tattoos and piercings, waxing, etc. I really think understand how you feel.
You want anything to hurt worse than the hurt you constantly feel, physically and/or emotionally. Have you been put on any antidepressants of any sort? I was put on Effexor XR about two years ago and it has helped a lot.
Hang in there and please try to think of anything you can before you cut that might make you stop. Stop, count to 10, and picture your pet, niece/nephew, parents, whatever makes you happy. It helps. Always remember, NO ONE is better off without you, even if you think they may be. I mean, look here, you've helped me (a perfect stranger) vent some of my personal pain and I feel better. If you hadn't posted this who knows? Thank you! Take care of yourself!
