I was diagnosed with severe depression about a year and a half ago. I am in therapy and currently on medication. I have in the past cut myself, it has been around a month since I cut last, and that was a sever lapse...I hadn't cut for several months before that.
Lately, things have been pretty rough. I just finished my junior year of college, and things were really stressful before that. Things should have calmed down some, but I'm having a really really hard time being home and it has resulted in me being angry.
I just don't know to convey to my parents and brothers that I need a little bit more help. I know I am so close to beating this but I am just having issues right now, very emotional and I am trying to hide it because I know it stresses them more. My parents are supposed to meet with my therapist, but they haven't called her yet. I don't know how they are supposed to help, but I need more than what I can do. I have been resisting hurting myself. I hate my scars as it is, but I am just so tempted to drive something through my arm. I know cutting myself isn't the answer and that just makes me angrier later because I know it's wrong.
I don't even know what I'm asking right now
