yeah, seriously, shut the fuck up QU, shut the fuck up eggy. you both clearly have NO idea what you're talking about because you've admitted to not understanding at all.
stuff. you're very fortunate to have had Lucky for as long as you did. it was the right thing to let him go as much as it does suck.
my ex used to cut herself. her arms are covered in scars from her most persistent phase of it, but she would occasionally relapse. the only thing that i could ever do to help was to comfort her. i tried to physically stop her once, but it exacerbated the situation. what finally had some progress was the constant repetition to her that it's just a short term solution. pain sucks, but it subsides. emotional pain takes longer to fade than the physical, but to cut is simply to distract yourself from the emotional pain you're in. scars fade over time. all of them do, whether they're on your psyche or your forearm. it's just a matter of patience.
i know it's really fuckin terrible, but the pain does subside. it won't be noticeable tonight, but over the coming weeks: normality will resume.
i hope you're alright, stuff, and i hope you can resist the temptation, but tell me if you can't. you've still got a friend.
i remember how much it hurt me to hear from my ex that she had cut herself the previous night or the night before, because i felt like she could've turned to me instead of doing that, but i know that that's just egotistical of myself now. you're
dealing with your
pain in your
way. all i can do is wish you all the best. you've got people that care about you here.
