I Cut My Wrist, It Makes The Pain Go Away

    Knife

    I cut. My arms and my wrists. Blood running down my arms. I feel I deserve all the pain. I've cut since 3rd Grade. When I take the blade, it runs through my skin, losing blood. I have been to the hospital twice for blood loss... Cutting eases the pain
