trigger warning
ive been thinking of cutting myself again. i google pictures of cutting to calm myself down. there is nothing like that feeling and that is very scary to me. it has been a couple years since i quit cutting and im scared that i might do it again.

I wouldn't think that looking at photos like that would help. I struggle as well. There is no one thing that helps. Squeeze ice cubes. Play music really loud. Watch FRIENDS re runs. Go outside. Stay safe. The immediate relief only lasts so long. It's harder to get back out than it is to ride this urge out.

@Error101 exactly, it's felt like that my whole life. my mom has bpd and doesn't seek treatment. she doesn't even know she has a problem. and my dad is codependent on her. i told my dad he needed to get a divorce and get away from her. he moved out and i thought they were planning on getting a divorce and my dad was going to start a happy life. but they've recently started being around each other a lot and going away on the weekend together. i know she's manipulating him to keep him around and probably use his money. it's so hard to watch. it's painful and makes me feel like cutting is my only way to escape.

@Error101 Well, it's good you found something that works. As long as you are not hurting yourself, or other, you have time to keeping learning new coping skills.
