It's my 3rd time now that I've cut myself intentionally. I sliced my wrist at school and a teacher saw it. I did it to try to cope with my feelings of self hatred. I then had to see my school counselor after he saw me do it. It was kinda a bittersweet meeting. I cried a little after I got back to class but noone saw as I didn't weep and only shed 2 tears. I still can't believe I relapsed. I feel guility.

What does a school counselor do in those circumstances?   Notify your parents?

@MisterMelancholyI am very sorry to hear that you found yourself in this position.  Many of us who are struggling or have struggled with self harm have relapsed and know what this feels like.  I recall from your intro post that you have received various diagnoses in the past.  Are you currently receiving any kind of psychiatric assistance (apart from the school counsellor)?

Also, I don't think I'd accept a label such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

Too many labels.  I know that may be a diagnosis for adolescents (??) but I could label myself (or others could label me) as having some sort of disorder such as Avoidant Personality Disorder.  And, I was mislabeled as having schizophrenia at one point which led to the wrong kind of treatment.   A label might fit in the judgment of one therapist, but it just doesn't help I don't think.  You might want to explore some cognitive forms of therapy, in addition to the psychiatric assistance MiaB recommended.

I see another counselor and a psychiatrist who prescribes meds.

Is the pdoc/counselor aware of what happened ?

Good advice. 

I don't DM but I'll mention it here that I  find it amazing you have been doing this since '05, MiaB.  I hope it's helped you as you have helped others.  Another thread swipe?  No, one time comment

Don't feel guilty for a lapse, it's a lapse/slip, not a relapse. It happens when we give things up, it lets you know you are not over the addiction (or addiction-like thing) yet but as you try and try to stop the lapses get further and further and further apart eventually you realize you are no longer addicted, you have other coping mechanisms, and you will never do it again. Be kind to yourself

      I got in a massive fight with some well liked people at school last friday and everyone saw it so everyone hates me now and I was suspended for today. I don't know if I ever wanna go back since everyone hates me now. Everyone keep insisting to but it's a death sentence. Everyone will pester me for the rest of my life and I'll eventually get into another fight. What do I do? Do I go to school? How can I control my massive anger and impulsivity?
      It feels like Mel Gibson has become my spirit animal.
      There's a video on Youtube where he yells at this chick on the phone and it's very relatable. It's exactly how I act when I get mad.

      I relapsed today. After over a year of being clean.
      I’m super stressed out about a test and my mind immediately went to self harm. So I did it. 
      I’m sad.

      So I've been clean for almost three months now.
      Today my mom and I got into a huge argument. She mentioned something along the lines of, "you're gonna be pissed off so you're gonna go cut yourself huh?" It really upset me for some reason. The way she said it was so cold, like it was an insult. I thought she really cared though. Then she said something similar to, "you're gonna cut your arm."  When I went back into my room, I couldn't help but cry. When she brought the topic of self harming up, it was the first time I even thought about it in months. It was a sick reminder. I don't know, I'm not really looking for advice or anything. I just wanted to get that off my chest.

      First of all, happy new year everyone!
      Okay, so I said I was going to do 'No cut December'. And I made it! 
      I realized I'm much more happier without self harm. I even stopped counting the days unconsciously, self harm wasn't a daily thought anymore. Whenever I felt down, hurting myself didn't even cross my mind. 
      So in 2018 I will continue my road to recovery. Thank you all for supporting me on this forum.

      Hey all,
      I have noticed that my memory has dwindled to zero these days. I had an evaluation done at the VA hospital memory clinic. They said they see no issue at all with my memory, but rather deduced that due to PTSD and daily pain I suffer, it is affecting my attention span, which in turn affects memory.  I didn't have this issue like this last semester. It is awful. Anyone else with issues like this? Any tips? I need to pass. I am not doing a very good job because I cannot test well. I may spend 2 to 3 hours on homework and get very good grades, but my 1 hour allotted for tests is not a help.
