i'm confused. not able to focus on anything, except a guy friend of mine, for any longer than... 5min. i've started rambling, and i never ramble. somethings not right.i need some help. see my signature.no i'm not on drugs either... i promise. and i've also started scaring my hands. never cutting deep enough to draw blood... but right to that point. is that bad? and i'm stressed out. all my friends keep needing me, but i don't feel able to dump on them, though they dump on me all the time. i feel like a mother, and i'm not old enough to want that job
i don't know what's going on

Honey, cutting is never good. That is hurting yourself, and when you do that, it's time for some outside help. And you say you can't focus on anything? Could be a hyper-active disorder, or something way less serious, like stress.

Best thing to do? Tell someone-right away! Dump on one of your friends-from what you say, they definately should listen, since you do. Tell your Mom, your Dad, your teacher, your school psychologist. Just tell someone!

While you have some free time, relax-just sit on your butt, and forget everything. Take a nice long bath, whatever will help. And eat lots of chocolate !

i know cutting isn't good... but i don't hurt my self... it's more like a bored cutting, i guess you could say.
thank's for the advice. i did just dump on my guy friend,ben, and so now i feel much better. i know it's not a hyper-disorder because i'm one of the least active people i know... not couch potatoe like but not buzzed either... i'm still confused, i feel really restless also, so i'm maybe thinking it's just stress.. what do you think?

Yep, I'll bet it's stress. Did you know that stress can be a result of boredom, too? So, that would be a reason for cutting. The "bored cutting" you're doing now could lead to serious, harmful cutting later, so whenever you get bored, find something to do asap. But, if you get urges to cut it might be best to see a psych.

Do not cut yourself anymore!

Come on ... say it w/ me ... "I will not cut myself anymore, Smurf" Alright ... good

I know it's hard, but from what i've read, this is still relatively new to you right? And, as always, the further you get into something, the harder it is to get yourself out. Be careful ... Self injury is not joke, it's serious stuff. Get some help sweetie ... Talk to someone, anyone that will listen.

If you ever feel the need to cut again, log onto Scarleteen and just bash away at your keyboard. When I am upset, that helps.

Gd luck sweetie. We are all here for you.

To me you sounds stressed, which is leading to you getting depressed, which is leading you to cutting yourself.

You say all your friends keep needing you? I think you need to tell your friends you need a break, or sooner or later your going to crack under pressure.

Take sometime out, do something you havent done in AGES that you love to do, start having baths, and just relaxing.

Try not to think to much, thinking results in rambling in your situation because a million things are going through your mind at one time and you cant control the amount you talk due to stress.

Seriously girl, get off the freeway for awhile and drive a nice long straight slow country road.

and please, dont cut yourself, the scars arent worth what your going through! it'll pass

stress from all my friends needing me, from being in a stressful relationship (he's gone)
and i don't know what else...
plus it's not like i'm on the go all the time. in fact most of the time i just wanna sleep.. even if i've just woken up... i'm still tired... it sucks... ps... just thought i'd let you guys know: i quit cutting
thanks
