this is just some thoughts on stuff i have been thinking about and i hope it helps you.....basically most people here say at one time or another that they want to stopping cutting and are looking for tips on how and that is a good thing, but that can only help you so much. you have to really want to. you have to be determined to not hurt yourself anymore. in some ways you have to hit rock bottom i did and it sucked. i spent over a year missing my first year of high school because i was in and out of the hospital. i cant even begin to say how hard it was spending nights sitting in my room in the hospital, crying and realizing for once in my life i really was all alone. my arms are covered with scars that will never go away. i had many cuts that needed stiches but i didnt tell anyone so there is an even worse scar. i put my mom through hell the past few years going to counseling appointments and this last year she missed sooo much work because she would have to take me to the ER because i tried to kill myself. its not fair to do that to our parents. i know not all parents are perfect (ok none of them are) but they really do love you and want to help and they just dont know how to. you really need to talk to them. back to the main point, there are things that can help you in the really tough moments when you really want to cut, but in general you need to want to do it for yourself. you might stop for a parent or a friend, or boy/girl friend which is ok but for me when i did that it came back even strong time and time again until the day i really hit rock bottom. i cried for hours straight and realized this wasnt how i wanted my life to go and at that point i made the choice for myself to stop. its been hard and there have been setbacks and more med changes but all in all things are sooo much better then they were a year ago.
