Isolation

I'm a 16 year old girl and I've really been struggling lately. I have BPD and being in isolation had been making me feel worse. I can't control my emotions and every little thing is triggering me and making me want to self harm. I was almost 2 months clean, which is a record for me, but I broke it tonight. Soemthing happened and it just pushed me to do it and I don't know what to do anymore. No matter what I try I always want to hurt myself and I can't stop

Re: Isolation

Hi @Former-Member, I am one of the moderators on this forum.

It seems you are going through a very difficult time. I can hear you are distressed and find it difficult to control your emotions right now. I will send a private message to you to check in how you are doing. Take care.

Re: Isolation

Hi @former-member, 

I hear your pain and struggle, 16 is a hard age to feel this. I have been where you were at 16 but diagnosed at 18 with BPD. Self harm isn't great and i i know how hard it is to not do it. Can you find 5 things that can distract you when you have the urge? Use your 5 senses as well? I still self harm myself so only suggesting what I'm told in these moments.
