    Well last night I decided today is going to be

    day one. It was very short notice and unexpected. I just woke up and I am already starting to feel the stress and anxiety I get when I haven't cut first thing in the morning. It's going to be a rough day, but I have amazing people who believe in me. They are with me every step...

    Why do people talk about it like it's bad?

    Guess what, it's the best thing in my life. The sudden pain reminds me of how I used to be. Everyone talks like I should stop but why? Nothing can replace it, nothing else comes close. I have nothing left from my old life. Just a two room apartment and a collection of knives...

    My scars are still getting better slowly.

    Little by little worst part is I will wake up every morning and see my pain.

    I was clean for 7 months,

    I was doing so well. I kept everything together, my parents finally started to trust me again, my teachers stopped talking to me about it and I'd finally stopped counselling. But last night it all got too much, way too much. And I did it, and now I feel like a mess again. Like I...

    I've been cutting for a long time now.

    I just can't seem to stop, and I don't really want to anyways. I need it to make it through the day. No one in my life even suspects that I could do this to myself. They all think I'm this happy little girl. I wish they could see past that, but whatever. It's better for them to...

    Scars

    When I see the scars on my body I think, "What have I done?". I think of I have to always wear bracelets. Or that people will judge me if they see. Will anyone love me? I'm so broken. 3 months clean, but I'm scared of triggers.

    Oh my god. ****. I hate myself.

    I'm so annoying. I'm expendable to all my friends. In my darkest hour everyone leaves me. The razor offered sanctity, if only for a few seconds. But I dragged the time out, going deeper, turning the single cut into a gaping hole until I'd been working on the cut for half an hour...

    I knew a boy who liked to draw,

    He drew pictures that nobody saw, He was most artistic late at night, In the bathroom out of sight, He kept a secret no one knew. His drawings were different, no paper or pen, But needed a bandage now and again. We stood by the river under the stars, He rolled up his...

    People don't take cutters seriously.

    If they knew someone who cuts they would say that we are attention seekers or we're creepy or just in a growing up stage where teenagers are just confused. Like really?? If we want attention, we wouldn't hide when we cut, or if this is like some part of growing up we wouldn't be...
