I wonder if any other adults have ever had a problem with cutting. I started cutting 4 years ago when I had my first breakdown. I stopped several times until I have another major episode of depression. When I searched the internet, I found out that cutting is only common with teens. That made me feel worse. It\'s just I know that the physical pain doesn\'t hurt near as much as the emotional pain. Some times when I watch the blood drop it reminds me of my tears. I guess I\'m not really sure why I cut. It\'s kind of like screaming when you are angry or crying when you are sad. I don\'t think that there is anyone that would understand this part of my depression. I told my dr. that I no longer cut & I wear long sleeves no matter what the weather is like. I hide the fact that I cut from everyone other than my husband. If I seek help, I would have to be hospitalized and working in the medical proffession, I just couldn\'t bear to go to a hospital where I know almost everybody. I\'m going back to sleep now, after all it is after noon.

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
