I don't cut my wrists but I do nick them. ( nick as in scratches that bleed but don't hurt TOO MUCH) one of them is bleeding right now. I'm not really asking for sympathy because I don't want any. I suppose just putting it somewhere where nobody knows who I am (or really am anyway) is a way of getting off of my chest and well... I don't know...

    I was there a few years ago (if I had to guess, it was when I was closer to your age). Pressures, unhappiness that I felt though didn't always fully comprehend the causes. I started "nicking," as you said, my wrists. Scratches that drew blood but nowhere near life-threatening. I got "help," went through meds and psychiatrists and counselors... but when I felt bad, that's what I went back to - except I did it more in places people wouldn't see, such as legs and even my stomach. In the end, it was finding the strength within myself to stop both the cutting and the meds and doctors (because in my case none of them helped much). I guess all I really want to say is "hang in there." It's hard, I know it. Easier said than done. I still have thoughts of cutting cross my mind at particularly bad times, but I hold back now. It'll pass. I hope you can reach this point too. I hope you can find something, someone, that can replace or suppress that urge. Come to these forums, play a game, pet a cat... find something you love, something else that makes you happy, maybe even makes you laugh - a movie, a website, a book (I still have a favorite that I've reread more times than I can count). You might think there's no such thing for you, but I think you just haven't found it yet. Or maybe you don't want to. I was that way for a while. Anyway... Sincerely and truly wishing you (the real you) the best. :)

    i don't like to nic or cut at my skin because it just becomes ugly scars that will be with me forever, but i do have ascetic practices i do to release some frustration and pain i go through.
