Shall I talk to my parents that my depression is getting worse so I feel like this?
If you are comfortable talking to your parents about it, and believe they will supportive to you, then by all means USE THEM!
Do I go to my GP?
Your GP is there to be used if you need the help, that's what theyre trained for =]
In terms of fighting the urges to self harm, there are several things you can try (some work more on certain people than others).
I've got a big sheet of stuff to do, ill just type out the less ridiculous ones. It's all about distraction
- You could use an elastic band, wrap it around your wrist or arm tightly, flick it onto the skin.
- Coloring in. Now this may sound ridiculous, but if you do find a pattern to colour in and keep sitting there concentrating on it, youll find that youll be colouring until the urge passes (hopefully).
- Grab something really cold, like ice. Squeeze it, put it somewhere sensitive etc.
- Set times for yourself not to self harm, i.e. give yourself a goal of 10 minutes, then another goal and so on.
Just a few tips
