I’ve been self harming since I was 16.  I use it as a way to let out my anger and punish myself.  I injure in many different ways.

I’ve been trying to stop. 

I stopped for about a year but recently it’s all started again, a lot worse than before.

It all started when I got really sick which led to me feeling really tired and then depressed and alone.  I haven’t been getting on with my parents. 

Also, I’m about to go travelling on my own for a few months, and I’m scared that I won’t be able to function by myself, and that with no one there that knows about the self harm, I won’t be able to control it.

I’ve also been having frequent suicidal thoughts.  This is worrying and scaring me.

If anyone would like to talk to me I’d really appreciate it! 

Also, if anyone has any techniques of how to stop.. That would be good too :'(
