    I had been doing so well coping with my stress

    and I hadn't cut myself for about 10 months but last night I don't know what came over me. I was sat in my room overwhelmed about the amount of work I had to do for college, then my mind went into overload and I started thinking about all the bad things in my life which I had...

    Me Too.

    I cut myself. But I'm such a coward. Once I picked up the razor, I just went to town. My thighs and wrists are now bloody and hurting. It felt good. Great, actually. I can confess that I'm going to do it again.

    Ok so. I haven't told anyone

    that I cut but I don't do it a lot. Maybe once a mouth but I've never told anyone. And I don't think that any one knows. But I just really have to get it off my chest. The last time I cut was a couple of days ago and it was because of so much drama at school and I just couldn't...

    One Little Cut

    I cut myself for the first time last month, the cut is fading, and you can hardly see it anymore. I have wanted to cut hundreds of times since then, but somehow, I stopped myself. Now that I think about it, I would like to cut right now....

    Briefly, But It Scarred

    I was very shocked when I picked up the knife. I've only done it briefly a few times, and I'd like to say never again - but who knows? It was all because of my uncle who's an alcoholic. He had tried to commit suicide again, and I felt a lot of pain inside. I thought of the pain...

    I hate when people act like you can "just stop.

    " Self-injury is an addiction, you can't "just stop." Can people just up and decide to stop smoking or overdosing on drugs? No. It's a serious problem. If it's for attention, then why do we try so hardly to hide it? People who are talking about "those emo freaks that cut...

    No one in my life knows I have cut myself.

    I don't think any of them realize I am that depressed. It's too hard for me to tell them because of the look they get in their eyes that I have betrayed them. It is so hard living with this depression I have that no one knows about because I can't bring myself to tell them...

    myself, its been a couple of months & I've been getting a lot of help by talking about it with my counciler & whatnot. I did it because I wasn't in the best of situations and I took all of my frustration out on myself. It didn't solve anything & it didn't make me feel any better...

    It Helps Me Pretend The Rest Of My Life Is Normal.

    As I'm typing now, I'm concious of the scars on my legs and the wounds on my arm. It started last year, little scratches with my key, then scratched that scabbed with sewing needles. Finally I switched to the disposable razors sitting looking harmless in a cup in my bathroom. I'm...

    Yes, I Have Cut Myself

    I cut myself for the first time when I was really depressed. I later found out I had depression, but that's another story. I used a razor and cut myself on my upper arm about 3 times until it bled. I know it sounds weird, but it felt really good. All the pain I had went to my arm...

    My Story

    So here's my story.  My name is Rob, I'm 19, and the last time I cut myself was about a month ago.  It was after I had felt like I had failed at trying to save a friendship that I had with my friend Ashley.  However after I cut myself she then came down to my dorm room to...

    I love it and I hate it. It reminds me I am here but it also reminds me that no one see's me. I see the blade in my hand fascinated by the edge, its shape, and its gleam.I see the look in my eyes as I stare myself down in the mirror. They scream back at me with hatred and sadness...

    Insight; It Made So Much Sense...

    I only did it once. It was actually about 4 months ago. Up until I actually did it myself, I never really could fully understand why anyone could do this to themselves. I mean, I knew some were doing it for attention, but I knew there had to be something more to their story...

    From About 8 To 20

    I started cutting myself when I was about 8 or 9 and stopped when I was about 20 (except for a few lapses). I would cut myself on the forearms, ribs, thighs, and chest. At first I didn't know why I was cutting myself. After a few times I realized that I felt better afterward.It's...

    When I cut myself, it was like releasing all of

    the pain. I don't do it anymore because it was causing attention from my peers. & because I realized I can get through this. My problems compared to the whole world's is nothing.

    I Didn't Even Cry

    I remember the first time I cut. It wasn't deep it didn't bleed a lot and I wasn't really strong enough to go through with it. It still felt stupidly good though. The second time I was a bit braver, then I realized scissors weren't the best option. I changed tactics and used a...
