Three girls face their biggest enemies... themselves.
Sorry but once you are pregnant/already have a child, it's time to seek whatever help you to in order to get healthy again. Your reasons for self harm are now excuses when you have a child or are pregnant. Someone needs you, needs you to be healthy, and not harming themselves. That child will one day be old enough to "Put two and two together" and realize that their mother cut themselves. Not exactly easy for a child to deal with. Sometimes, people who self injure need something other than sympathy. I know this probably isn't a popular comment. But self harm becomes ridiculous at some point. Grow up and deal with issues as an adult should. I used to do this, and I'm only 19 now. And I've already gotten past the point of realizing there are SO many more ways to handle stress and anger.
Trichotillomania sucks the whole I was watching this I was pulling my hair :(
I have dermatillomania, ever since I was five. I'm almost 31 now. It's something that I can't stop, no matter how hard I try. I'm sure it seems relatively easy to those who don't suffer from it, but trust me, although it seems dumb and gross, it's out there, and it's a tough habit to break. My mother told me I started when I was five, but personally, I don't know how old I was. I just know I've spent my life doing it
i was sexually abused as a child for 7 years by my dad. from when i was 8 to 15. i started to cut myself when i was 12 years old. they were superficial to start with and then started getting deeper. i have been hospitalized also over 7 times and have attempted ******* 6 times. as of today i have not cut myself since november of 2011 and i have not attempted ******* since january of 2012. its really hard not to but as i see my scars i know i dont want anymore. i still think about it til this day but more ******* and not just cutting. although a lot of times i do miss the feeling of complete control.
Erin's husband seems to see nothing wrong with what she does
Sometimes gloves can help or putting bandaids on your hands because it makes you more aware of when you are pulling
i've been a cutter for going on twelve years, well i haven't cut in six months thanks to my girl friend who pushed me to get some help. This just hit something in me. I sympathize with Erin. I feel for her.
I don't get how this pleasures someone i know they have issues but find something besides this to make you happpy
I cut myself so I can relate to these girls. I have been self harming since I was 8 now I am 20 and it makes me angry at myself for doing it. on my wrist there is a tattoo now were a scar used to be my tattoo says beautiful and there are music notes around it to remind me that I am beautiful and the music notes to remind me that I have a talent at something I t is easier to make yourself feel pain then it is to deal with your emotions. we all have something to live for
the last girl suffers from ocd, specifically, trichotillomania (hair pulling). it would have been more interesting if she were featured in the true life: i have ocd episode, so the viewer could read her within a more appropriate context.
I used to struggle with self harm so i can relate to these girls. i admire them for seeking help and opening up to others. it is a very hard thing to do. its extremely hard to stop and yes there might be relapses but when you come to the realization that you are so loved and beautiful and have so much to live for it gets easier. After time you can learn to deal with stress in other ways and self harm wont even be a thought.For everybody out there stay strong and remember how loved you are!
I have a problem with self injury. I get safety pins and scratch F's on my arms and legs because I feel like a failure. I pull my hair out. I scratch my wrists with my keys. I have a problem with stress and I take it out on myself by hurting myself. I get help from a psychologist but she doesn't help me at all. I still have these problems. It's been two days since I've scratched myself and every time I try to get happy about going a long time without it I always end up going back to it.
my sister also has trich. She is 15 years old and was diagnosed two years ago. We aren't sure what triggered it and she is currently wearing wigs that are polyfused to her head. I'm trying to look for different treatment options but haven't been able to find anything. Do you guys have any suggestions?
I don't think i've ever had so many moments of getting light headed as i did watching this show. Especially pregnant Erin . . . i can't took at the belt on my robe for the next couple days.
I can't watch this.
I have trick too and I have had it for almost eight years, it so hard to fight, but you become a stronger person and I admire erin too for being so strong!
I send my heart out to you! You are so strong for going through all of this and I admire your bravery!
