Can’t stop cutting ?

I suffer from Severe depression. Since my childhood I’ve had nothing but bad things happen to me. Sexual Assault, Pregnancy loss, Domestic violence, etc. & nothing seems to be looking up for me. Cutting is how I cope but I want to stop. Therapy doesn’t help, medication only makes me drowsy, I just feel so worthless.

    You sound like a perfect candidate for DBT. It's not easy and it takes time but it can do wonders for people, helping with serious behavior problems and depression.

    Therapy does work if you have the right type. DBT takes time and commitment, up to 2-3 years, but it's the best hope you have of overcoming the trauma you've experienced and developing healthy coping mechanisms.
