    I stated cutting when I was 11.

    I still do, and I truly don't see the problem. I don't cut too deep, just enough to release inner pain.

    I cut all the way up my forearm.

    Red puffy bumps with blood that dots up in a little line. That's how I spend most of my nights now :(

    I Just Do

    I cut my writs because it just makes me feel better. I started cutting my wrist when I was fifteen years old. And I'm eighteen and I still do it. For me, it keeps my mind off the bad things that happened to me. When I'm mad, I cut my wrist and I feel calm and relaxed.

    Can You Relate? You Have The Power To Stop!

    Before you make that first cut, remember-- You will find the blood and pain release addictive. Even though you think you can make a few tiny cuts that aren't deep and will heal easily-- They will get deeper. They will scar. They will take sometimes months to heal. And years...

    People who cut themselves.

    Some people say that people who cut themselves are seeking attention. I can't agree with this 100%. One thing I did notice, people who cut do it in secret. Shame and fear can make it difficult to ask others for help. They feel detached. They cut from their feelings. They may...

    This is the first time I've cut in 2-3weeks.

    .. It felt so good... It made everything seem okay... A little bit... But the pain still lingers. The hurt won't go away... I want to end it... So badly... I've been rejected more than once... Why should I live?
