Hurting Myself


Recently when I have been having panic attacks I have been hurting myself by smashing my head into walls, punching myself, cutting myself, slapping myself, etc. It has gotten out of my control and I am really afraid that it is going to turn out really bad one day and I am going to be seriously hurt. I have scrapes, marks, bruises everywhere and I am afraid that people are going to start noticing the self harm I am inflicting on my body. Please help me anyone.

I would seriously recommend for your own safety to get admitted as soon as possible. When your self harming to this extent you should seek immediate professional help. I am so sorry your suffering and my heart goes out to you, but this level of self harm needs to be addressed with therapists and clinicians that can give you 24 hour monitoring to help you cope and stop hurting yourself. There are just no words anyone here can say that will really help at this point....we are here for you the best we can be...but please get help.

Hi useful, I'm so sorry you are going through heart goes out to you. But as fauxartist said in her reply to you, it is time to seek professional help immediately. I'm worried about your safety and I don't want anything to happen to you.

Love and light to you ❤🌹

I'm so sorry your panic attacks have gotten this severe. It may be hard/intimidating, but the best thing you can do for yourself right now is to tell someone you trust and seek out professional help. It may be admitting yourself or scheduling with a therapist. You'll be able to get to the root of your anxiety as you work with a therapist while possibly getting on medication to help you. I hope you're doing so much better today, friend. Please stay connected and take care.
