Thank all of you for this insight and information.
Refuse2: Thank you, will keep posting if I run into any snags. He is taking depakote and seems ok for now, his sleeping patterns are back to normal which was effecting his moods quite drastically. We have chemical dependency classes 4 nights a week and he is getting into therapy as well. He has very good friends, which have also helped, so his support group with friends, his older brothers is positive. I just need to keep a very close watch on him, and will post threads to you if I have some questions.

All right...everyone here seems to be here for someone else, whether it be their child or a friends, or they're here for their past. I'm here for myself. I am completely confused. I cut myself now. It's not very serious. The scars go away within weeks, but that's not really what I came to ask. I need to figure out why I do it. Why do I cut myself. I haven't been through any traumatic events, no one has died, I've never been abused, I have friends, I don't have any major difficulties in my life, I live with both my parents, and they don't fight...so why do I do it?! What's wrong with me? I have never been able to figure this out. I don't cry when I do it. I can't cry. I seriously think my tear glands have dried up. If anyone knows anyone who cut for no apparent reason...tell me...I'm so completely confused.

Some times the reasons are not so visibles,also you have to check on your self, may not be your surrounding may just be you.I find therapy very helpful.ultimally we are responsable for ower actons and that may be being responsable for takeing madicine,if that is the case.(that's what i lern for my self)

AtWarWithMyself- Sometimes things aren't always clear. It can help to step back and try to see things from a different angle. In what ways do you express yourself? Do you write? Dance? Sing? These things may sound silly to you, but they are ways to release some of the emotions that could be trapped within.

Do you talk with anyone, real honest, deep conversations? A few friends who really truly listen to you can help.

Sounds like you are searching for some kind of release, whatever that may be. Don't feel like you have to have had something happen to you, or to have some sort of defineable problem in your life to be validated for cutting yourself.

I never had any real defineable problems but for some reason I had a mental illness. It was not triggered by any of the typical "problems" that you would think, but it is definetly there, and it has a serious impact on my life.

So just take this post for what it's worth. I'll be checking for your response if there is anything else you want to post.

Thanks so much to the people who responded to my post. I really can't talk to anyone about this because I don't have a relationship with anyone that could handle something like this. My friends are quite un-serious. Thanks for your advice Refuse2GiveUp. I'm still confused, but I'll try to remember what you said and give it a shot. There's a part of me that knows what you said is right, but then there's a part that doesn't want to change. Thanks...This isn't going to be easy is it?
