I Cut My Wrist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 602 People

    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 :(

    Not Good Enough

    Cutting isn't good enough.. That's why I pour purfume on it so it burns

    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.

    I Regret It...

    Sorry about this being so long... but if you're interested, then, well, I guess... enjoy? When I was 12-15, I used to cut my wrists. I used to write down every time I did it, but eventually, I started doing it so much, that I lost count, and it only began feeling tedious to count...
