    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.

    My scars are still getting better slowly.

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

    30 years ago Yes .. I'm sure people wonder

    why a 46 year old guy would join this group. As a teen I had (probably still do) a mass of tangled emotions with no way to let them out. The pain inside was too great. One day while drinking I put a cigarette out in the palm of my hand and discovered that the combination of...

    Handle With Care

    "People always want to know what it feels like, so I’ll tell you: there’s a sting when you first slice, and then your heart speeds up when you see the blood, because you know you’ve done something you shouldn’t have, and yet you’ve gotten away with it. Then you sort of...

    Count To 10

    Shut your eyes tight, Tell yourself it's all alright. Clench your fists in till they feel as if they could burst, You remember the time you had to do this first. You're eyes soon reach their fill, Soon after you're tears begin to spill. Brace yourself for what's yet to come...

    The Butterfly Project.

    The Rules are: 1. When you feel like you want to cut, take a marker, pen, or sharpies and draw a butterfly on your arm or hand. 2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better. 3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally. NO scrubbing it...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I like the sight of my own blood, I like to know that I'm only numb inside, to defy my parents as in when my parents anger me, which they do often, I cut to make myself feel like they can't control what I do, to do things I know would **** them off. My mom probably...

    I haven't cut in over two weeks,

    but I need to so bad. I hadn't felt the need to till now. It's all hitting me and I need it. That or a cigarette, but I'm not smoking anymore. I need to cut, I need to be able to breathe again. I'm trying to be calm and not do it, it's hard though.

    I myself do no cut myself.

    However I know a few people now that do. I am also a very spiritual individual and I believe very much in helping people. Teal Swan is my favorite of the spiritual teachers by far. Here is a video of hers about cutting. I hope it helps at least one of you out there.
