do self- injure, like a lot of other people in this world. And I'm not in the least bit proud of doing so. i really feel bad about writing these things because I feel that people will think that i'm attention seeking, but I'm really just attempting to express myself and maybe help others

I think cutting over all is simply misunderstood. Cutters are penalized for their self-destructive actions and are shunned when they should be supported. I have never felt so lost in my life ever since I told my family. It feels like they think I'm some insane murderer or a rabid bunny rabbit that's going to upstir anarchy. But o well... the best thing to now is, like what everyone tells, you, you are not alone. Ever since I started cutting, I realized quite a few of the people I knew also self-injure and were dealing with the same problems I was.

self-injury, or also know as self-mutilation, (grr...i really hate that term) is a way for me to, well, to feel something. Sometimes I feel so numb, and no matter what happens, i'm always on the verge of tears. Cutting offers a way for me to come back to reality and actually feel something real.

The main problem with self injury: it-doesn't-always-work.and then you feel ashamed when your arm is dripping with blood and you still feel horrible. Even worse is that once you start, it will only get worse because you become addicted to it.Please DO NOT start self injury..It is seriously not the solution, as most cutters can agree. The truth behind self-injuring is that it's all in your mind. The relief after a slash from the blade is mental and is controllable with our minds. For example, try cutting lightly when you're happy. Unless you like the pain, it will damn hurt and you will feel pretty stupid about it.

Reasons for self-injury: there are obviously a magnitude of reasons why people self-injure, but what really matters is knowing that every reason is valid. Some reasons for self-injury may seem stupid to you, but people have different mental pain tolerances than you. a celebrity might have EVERYTHING, but they are still miserable and feel the need to cut. even 'attention cutters' have a reason that has driven them to the extent of cutting. we can't judge a person by the reason they cutt, because we don't know how the events they're going through are affecting them.

I'm seriously not anti-cutting, because it is so much safer than other alternatives. With self-harm, you can control the damage, and there are few after effects other than scars. Drugs can easily mess you up, and there is no turning back. And keeping the pain inside you can destroy your mind and your strength. Whatever you do, you need to get your thoughts out in some safe way.

The best way to help yourself out of your troubles is to seek help. Friends are so understanding and they will always be there for you! Don’t get me wrong, they may be shocked at first by what you tell them, but they will never leave you because of it. But then, sometimes your mates can only help so much. That might be the time to search for a counselor

...Oh how I loathe counseling.....so far I've been in counseling for a little over a year and I'm on my third shrink. I'd have to say that 'therapy' has been one of the worst experiences of my life, honestly. But looking back, I also realize how much counseling has HELPED me, though I would never admit it to my counselor's face....I dont like going and havnt been for seven weeks...im too scared. According to her, i was looking at the world all wrong...ouch...that really offended me and I refused to tell her anything. I was taking the things she said too personal and i believed that she was actually criticizing me. SOMEONE HELP.

Thank you mumu for this thread. I started cutting myself this year and it quickly developed into a downward spiral of addiction. I didn't want to "mutilate" (hate that word too) myself; I did for two reasons. One was to release the inner pain because I felt I had no one to express my pain with and the other was to punish myself for my relationships with others. I quit doing it around 3 months ago, but a very low times the urge is still there.

I am a 50 year old teacher and guess I should have known better. Since then, there have been two students who have cut themselves at our school and I find the educators and staff filled with disgust over this matter instead of seeing it as a person who is troubled.

I wish I knew how I could help you. I quit my counselor; felt like it was a waste of time and money. I am trying hard now by taking things day by day and choosing to be a happy person. No one can help me but myself. Yes, I do need support and have found it on this site. I think if you can find other people who have walked in your shoes that can help.

Take care and I am proud of you for writing about cutting...GG
