Yes do the breathing. In through the nose and out through the mouth. It is called smelling the roses and blowing out the candles, It helps to calm you down. Tell yourself that you care about yourself, try not to take it out on yourself anymore. I had to edit your post as we aren't allowed to discuss self harm. But i truly do understand where you are coming from and how it feels. It does snap you out of things though, but it isn't the way to treat yourself. I understand that feeling that causes you to commit such things too. I am sorry that you are going through this. Talking to a counselor helps. It really does. And coming here helps too. So continue to do so.
I hope that you feel better soon.
