    I don't cut just because I'm sad

    or mad, because I am depressed... I just want to die! And I'm still alive because suicide is a sin and I don't think I have the guts to point a gun on my head, my grandpa fought to not get a bullet in his head. I don't think I have the guts to put a knife through me, because I...

    I Do

    When I bottom out, I do cut myself. Its a high the feeling I get when the blade slides across my skin and the beautiful bright red blood comes gushing down my skin. For a brief moment, I know something beautiful can come from me.

    Too Much.

    I think mostly for me it's a...stress reliever and makes me focus on something different. I don't do it every time I'm upset just when I can't take it anymore. Something really has to push me to the edge for it to happen. In some ways I'm ashamed of myself for it but in some ways...

    I do it just a couple of times .

    I'm not sure why I do it but it makes me feel whole . Sometimes the cuts leave scars and everyday I look at those scars to show just how alone I feel .

    Only a Couple Times

    I don't do it a lot. I've only done it a couple times, when the shame and anger against myself boiled over. I do it mostly with my fingernails, but I've also done it with a broken bowl, a razor blade, and a pocket knife. It helped me deal with my pain, and it was a way of...
