I am feeling depressed every day. I am having self harm urges.  My mom found out about my self harm. Last month she took away the tools I used to self harm with. Last night I was crying for hours and I cried myself to sleep. I feel hopeless. 

How can I cope with depression and self harm urges?

Hello @hopefulone

Thank you for telling us about this. It sounds like you're having a pretty tough time at the moment, but I'm glad that you're asking others for help. How are you doing today? I hope you're feeling a little bit better after opening up about this. I'm wondering, have you seen our support guide here? https://www.ditchthelabel.org/15-safer-alternatives-to-self-harm/ - maybe take a look and let us know what you think. It's good to try out these safer alternatives to self-harm so that you can protect yourself from physical harm. It is also good to explore what is making you feel depressed as you can then help yourself to move forward. I'm wondering, do you have an idea as to why you're feeling this way at the moment?

I feel  depressed because I feel alone and afraid all the time. I feel like I have no one to talk to about my problems. I have no friends. My family always says homophobic things.  My family doesn't know that I'm a lesbian and that I am in a long distance relationship with a girl. I am very afraid of my family. I feel alone.

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear that you feel alone. I just want you to know that we are here for you and you can talk to us about absolutely anything. It's great that you've got a girlfriend - how is that going? Also, can I ask, when you say you're afraid of your family, why is this? I hope that you're safe. You're not alone. Take care.

      I don't really know why but I've been feeling alone and depressed lately.  It's not like I'm alone alone but it feels like I am (idk if that makes any sense or not) I talk to people all the time but I don't really want to talk to them if you know what I mean.  I have anxiety and a bit of depression but I feel like my depression is getting worse.  My "friends" always talk about their problems and I help them by giving them advice but they don't know how much i wish they just didn't talk about their metal health or relationship problems.  
      Recently I've been talking to this person but I don't know a lot about them, I've been getting to know them and they seem really nice.  However, I don't know if I should tell them about my past when I was younger or if I should keep it to myself.  The problem is that I have mental health issues because of what happened to me when I was younger but not a lot of people know that but I want the person to know that about me so they get to know me a little better.

      Hello!
      I feel like I need to talk to someone who's actually gone through similar stuff. I don't feel like talking to my family, partner, friends or psychiatrist is helping. I feel like I'm falling apart even though I'm doing everything people told me to do that would help. I tried talking to the people in my life, I opened up to my partner I was taking my medication but the medicine just made me feel like a zombie, the people around me just couldn't understand what I was going through and why I wasn't getting better after so much time has passed. I'm not gonna write down my whole lifes story because that would take way too long. Only what's necessary to understand me.
      Been passed between parents my whole life
      Was bullied 
      Suffered from depression, anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia since childhood
      Self-harm stopped for a few years now struggling to stop again
      I've been suicidal half my life (currently in my twenties)
      Started taking xanax and anti-depressants tis year
      Partner with narcissistic personality disorder
      I'm on a self-destructive path and I don't know how to stop. I feel like I'm sinking deeper and deeper into a big black hole and know one knows or wants to pull me out from it. The only time I feel anything and feel free is when I drink and xanax and alcohol isn't a good mixture. A lot of times I have blackouts. I feel like I should be locked up in a mental hospital but everzone around me denise it. I also don't want to dissapoint the people around me. I also don't want people knowing these stuff about me. I just don't know what to do anymore.

      I've been self harming for 4 years now and don't know how to cope with it, people say that if you keep silent about how you feel it can be bad on your mental health, well i have kept silent and I feel depressed and i have panic attacks now and again.  Sometimes i feel suicidal too.  I just want someone to help me and give me some good advice on how i can cope with this.

      Hello, 
      I am (likely, waiting for a formal diagnosis) on a AS spectrum. I do not do well in large groups, or more likely in group where I need to follow multiple conversations at once and have to keep an eye on everyone's body language, my own body language and try to get out of way of too much sensory overload. These are often not social gatherings I would choose to go to but more of a work events, which are not mandatory but ARE mandatory. 
      This unfortunately results in me getting home completely drained and likely to get into mental spiral leading me to anxiety (over-thinking and over-analysing everything I said and done and how apparently everyone hates me now) and eventually to me revealing this pent-up frustration / fear / energy by self-harming. 
      Would anyone have a tip for a) while with people and how to keep my battery to be drained as fast, b) hacks for when you feel incoming anxiety attack or c) alternatives for self-harming, which I might try (tried few of the general ones sch as ice, creating, using a red marker, but none really did it and I ended up where I started). 
       
      Thank you,
      Rara

      Hello, my best friend is going through a severe depression since forever, he is seeing a psychiatrist but he's barely getting better, I really wanna help him, I always talk and listen to him and try to cheer him up but I feel that it's not enough because I'm not seeing an improvement. 
      Please help and tell me what should I do. 
      Thanks.
