From experience I know self harm—however you do it—builds on itself until it’s almost impossible to stop. As a release and relief measure it becomes a cycle.
You mention you’re on Wellbutrin. I’ve read on other people’s posts that theyve had manic, or anger episodes from it. Maybe you should talk to your dr about trying a new med.
Changing meds can be done outpt. But sometimes it’s safer to do inpt.
Whatever you decide, just keep talking to us.
Normal to me. I tell myself repeatedly ‘It’s okay to calm down.’ Someone said that once and over time these words became magical to me. Now I’m giving them to you to use.
@A MyDepressionTeam Member. I know how difficult it is to deal with an Unmedicated ADHD
Child. My son was ADHD and not medicated because he also had Tourette’s Syndrome and the med made it worse. The days were long and exhausting. And I was doing well at the time. Maybe a weeks break until your med kicks in would help. Youre not stepping out of watching him, you will be back at an appointed time.
BTW keeping a regular routine is a great idea. I also started saying we were going to end what we were doing and the next thing we would be doing several times before the next activity. It helped him transition from one to the other.
@samlsam. thats pretty crappy to do. Out of the self harmers that i know in real life and the ones i know online only one of them did it for attention she pulled up her pants leg to show everyone what she did and its like 'really?' i would be so scared if someone saw my cuts and your showing it off??? i had to remind myself that she must have something going on in her head just like all of us to do that. Do you feel like you could talk to them? i know how hard that is trust me. When ive wanted to NOT cut ive taken whatever i use and etch something into whatever i can and that helps just depending on why i want to cut. I wish i had something more useful. thanks for the reply xx
Yes,this is TOTALLY usual for me..those around me just think I am attention seeking tho...I am NOT...IT UPSETS ME THE PEOPLE THAT I KNOW AND LOVE WOULD THINK OF ME LIKE THIS...what can I do though??!!!
