the bigger picture.

I feel so guilty for complaining about my self injury, depression and hair pulling.

 There are bigger things out there, why am I being so pathetic?

I need to GET A GRIP.



  1. You know what? Any problem, big or small… is still a problem. You’re not pathetic I promise. You’re just someone with a problem, and you haven’t resolved it yet. And you’re coping with it this way.

    Don’t feel guilty, nor ashamed, go find help. Deal with the underlying causes of your depression, your self injury and your trichotillomania, and beat this problem.

    I’m in the same boat, minus the tricotillomania so if you want to talk… just reply.

    I hate my blog sounding so unhappy.

  2. I know I sometimes feel that way, to complain about PMDD while others have something that will take their life.
    I don’t think it’s pathetic. I believe that you have a ton of courage writing about your situation, difficulties, recoveries, set backs, etc…
    This takes a ton of courage, more than just hiding in the dark. You will never know how many others you are helping, I am sure there are people out there holding on, feeling better.

    I never even knew other people pulled hair. Though mine is mainly leg, it was still news/helpful knowing it was out there and ‘fixable’.

    Keep up the great work.
    I know that exercising during my most stressful times, even if that means walking more than once a day, helps me thru tough times.

    Good luck to you!

  3. awww thank you very much for the replies! I was just feeling guilty because two people I know had close relatives die this week from cancer.

    I never know if people really are reading what I say!!!

    your replies really touched me, mwah x

  4. No problem hun, I’m the same, I never know if people really read it either! It’s nice when people do reply though 🙂 especially when you’re at a low point and need some encouragement.

    Best of luck, I hope you beat this! You can do it!

  5. aww thanks 😀

    I think I have almost beaten self harm now…but we shall see


  6. wow look, it makes little faces!! 😀 😀 😀
