Hi! Ok so I have a little problem- ok a big problem- I cut myself. I started cutting myself staring a few days ago, it was because of numerous problems. Then yesterday I cut myself 4 more times. I only told my 3 best friends. But one of my best friends told my b/f and so then yesterday he came over. that helped a little. He is really understanding, incase you are wondering, I am the same girl that had trouble talking to her boyfriend but now it is getting better because I talked to him about it and he understands. Anyway, so if anyone out there knows of any good psycologists around the St. Paul, MN area, please tell me. If anyone has any advice on what I should do, please tell me. I think that I am done cutting myself, but I am not really sure. thanks

First of all you have to ask yourself why you're doing this. From what I gather you are very young - 14. The first thing you need to do, if possible is talk to your parents. Besides, if you do seek counseling, at your age it's necessary to receive parental agreements and they need to sign papers and stuff that you can't do on your own.

I saw that you've asked about counselors on other threads. Let me fill you in about the task you are asking others to undertake for you. Psychologists and Psychiatrists are very expensive, first of all, and many types of insurance don't cover it. Some can run between $100-600/hour Those who are seeking low-cost or free counseling services are usually out of luck. Only those who are profoundly poor or completely insane can receive free help.

Free help usually consists of committing a person to the psychiatric ward of a public hospital.

Why are you cutting yourself? Do you feel bad and do you want more attention? Or do you feel disconnected from reality and does this help you to feel grounded?

I sense that this is more of a cry for help. Otherwise, you wouldn't have asked so readily for aid. Most self-mutilators keep this a dark secret from everyone they know.

If you don't feel comfortable talking to your parents, talk to a teacher you respect, or a guidance counslor at your school. You need to talk to someone who is older than yourself and in a position of authority. Many of them have either experienced this themselves or have helped others in your position.

Good luck

There is a GREAT book at the library... I just can't remember the title!!! I will look it up. It includes LOTS of resources to help cutters. There is a support group called S.A.F.E.-- maybe you can look it up! Sorry I'm not more help right now, I will get the info. I just wanted you to know that there is help, that I read your post and that I cared.

Cutie! It isn't all my boyfriends fault!!!!!!! You have no idea. Are you trying to piss me off? If you are, it is working! He is trying to help me with my problems. At first it was kinda about him, but not anymore. There is no way that I am going to break up with him!

Please stop cutting. I cut. The marks do NOT go away. The frustration and shame does not go away. I have to live with this and hide this all the time. No one knows about this. I cut because I can't get the words out, the anger out, the hatred out. You think you can talk about this face to face with someone, you are wrong. You will not be able to! The words will not come out to admit what you have done. I am getting better, going longer without cutting. But I still want to. Sometimes I get angry because I know it's wrong, I hate it, but when I get beyond overwhelmed, the urge is strong and it is so hard. Stop cutting before you can't, before you ruin your arms.

Wow! Annette, it is like you totally know who I am and why I am doing this! I am not only cutting my arms, I am also cutting my legs and other parts of my body. I am going to try to get help today by going to a psychaitrist. I have been able to talk to people about this, quite a few people about this. I think that it has somehow helped me open up to people. Thank you everyone for helping me. I still need more help though, so if anyone else has any tips or anything, e-mail me at or just write in this site that we are in now. thank you.

PS to Frieda, yes i have cut myself lately, but not as often or as deep.
