    Cut

    1
    I'm a "popular" girl that everyone thinks has her life together. I cut myself a lot. I cut to numb pain. I cut to feel something. I cut to know I'm still alive. There's so many reasons that I cut. I need help.

    Raised scars

    1
    So, about two weeks ago I cut myself and normally I get red scars, maybe a little bumpy, I don't really notice, but I have one scar thats raised, not majorly but enough to annoy me. I've looked up about different types of scars but to be honest I can't even tell which one it would be, but anyway I was wondering if I were to cut this scar open would it heal differently or just make it worse. I'm...

    Scratching

    In 6th grade I started cutting because of problems with my mother that led me to feel like I needed to punish myself. My mother was furious and yelled at me when she noticed (because she didn't want people to think of her as the mother of "some pathetic emo fuck," as she so elegantly put it). After she yelled at me she took away my razor and wouldn't let me touch one again for two years.I hadn't...
  • For the first time ever, I cut on my thigh. 3 deep cuts. One is bad enough that I actually considered stitches. Instead, I doused it with neosporin and prayed to God I don't get an infection.Just wondering if anybody else does it on thighs? Morbid curiousity, I guess. It hurts like a mother and I walk with a limp now.=(

    Hi everyone. My name is Katie and I'm new here. I've been recovering self harm addict for almost 9 years now with my addiction beginning at age 12. I have gone through many relapses and clean periods and I am currently clean for 2 months. I am wondering if anyone else has been a long time addict like me. I have never talked to a psychiatrist about my addiction. I have been treated for anxiety but...

    *trigger* bad night.

    17 years ago I was a cutter...8th grade...loved it. All through high school and college I had an affair with it. It was always there every time I needed to be numb. Every time I needed to feel better. I hated myself. I got help. I stopped. 7 years ago I stopped. I got help. I got married I had kids. I have a great job. I am funny, and out going with these scars on my arms. I used to love my...

    Hello, so I've been cutting for a couple of years now but I've only just now wanted to try and stop about a month ago. The problem is it's been almost impossible for me to do so, I use cutting to help me go through my life. (i.e panic attacks, stress, depression, anxiety.) I've only been able to stop for about a week before I fall right back into cutting.So I guess I'm wondering if anyone else is...

    I can't trust my therapist

    1
    I've been self harming for about a year now. Three weeks ago my parents found out while I was at summer camp. I'm pretty lucky, they got me a therapist and all appears to be well now, or at least better. They've begun to monitor my texts and Internet searches, without telling me, but, obviously, I've found out. Luckily I've found a way around that. In a way I do want to get "better" but the thing...
