I am in therapy, but my problem is getting worse

I have been going to therapy for my self harm or cutting as most people know it as. I am 12 years old, and since therapy, it got worse. I am thinking about deep cuts to the bone, asking the gods to save me from me when I am alone. I think about killing myself sometimes, and I am pretty sure cutting is what kept me away from that. I really need help, and I don't want to go to my parents. Also, I am trying to tell something to my most understanding friend, but am having trouble. Please help me.

  • The new line of thought is to combine talk therapy with meds. Please consider seeing a psychiatrist as well. He/she will have to find the right drug for you with your input, so don't expect the doctor to give you a magic pill to make it all go away. Good luck.

  • I constantly struggle with cutting too and I have since I was your age . I'm fifteen now and its gotten to the point where it was 400 or more a day . Its a downward spiral and it is one of the hardest things to overcome . The best way to overcome such an intoxicating addiction is to replace it with a new one . Not drugs or alcohol or any of that stupid s*** , but something that helps you FORGET the pain . Video games , dancing , talking to a boy/girlfriend it could be anything . YOU ARE NOT ALONE . STAY STRONG .

  • You need to tell your therapist everything. Do not stop going to therapy. Tell a guidance counselor or teacher or someone at school. You can't go on hurting yourself.

  • Um stop therapy.
