The more I think of it, I think buying a punching bag would help you immensely. Please buy one. And punch it whenever you are feeling helpless and feel like SI or Suicidal.

That will help you exert some control over soemthing, and will divert your mind from self harming. Only because we feel completely helpless and control less, we feel tempted to do some harm to ourselves.

A while back I read somewhere that in ancient days, people are asked to walk in stones till it hurts their legs. It was done so that, people won't internalize their pain, and rather will experience it externally. And it will help people relieve their inner pain by experiencing it externally in their body. That is what people attmept to do, when they try to do self harm. So instaed of doing self harm, experiencing mild physical pain like walking on stones, or punching a bag, will have the same effect.

So please think about it. I am sure it will help you immensely.
