I Have Cut Myself

    I have cut my wrist since I was twelve.

    Not often were they deep enough to be fatal. I used to think I could stop. I couldn't without help. I liked the pain. I was astonished that I felt it. I had gone numb to all emotional feeling so I inflicted physical pain. Finally my cousin saw all my cuts. He asked my why I was...

    I Thought I Knew Before, But Now I Know All Too Well.

    I now truly know how a cutter feels. I used to rake my hands--sometimes gently, sometimes roughly--across the concrete walls at the high school. The pain helped me feel...okay. I knew how the pain helped. When a friend that I had a long time ago started to cut, I allowed it, only...

    It's happened again. 4 on each wrist.

    Oy vey. I was doing so well. I hadn't cut for like 5 months or so. And now I've done it again. At least i don't feel the urge to anymore. Maybe it's slowly but surley going away. I hope so.

    I haven't cut in about a month,

    and every time I get really depressed or pissed my wrists start tingling, and I get the urge to cut. People don't understand that its an addiction, just as alcoholism is. They see your scars and deem you 'emo' and I hate it, so when I get the urge I just read a book and silently...

    I have been clean of cutting

    for probably a few months now, and this is when I had pocket knives and all in the house. I gave them to my boyfriend to hold onto. I can't really describe why I did it except that it was just a release. A way of pain that numbed me, and comforted me. We all have that one sick...

    I only want to cut very rarely

    when my day has been awful and I just think the physical pain will balance out everything. But I don't do it. But today has been trying. Like idk what to do with the way I've been feeling lately. I don't know what the **** to do.

    I cut myself on two different occasions.

    I wanted to feel that feeling that others said they felt. The relief of it all afterwards. And I also just genuinely wanted to feel physical pain to match the emotional stuff I was going through. It didn't have a deep effect on me and that's why I only did it twice. The sense of...

    I have since I was in 6th grade.

    I was starting to really take in the fact that I was adopted. I didn't understand at the time it was for the best. I've been pushed and pulled in so many directions since then and I always find another reason to hurt myself. I never have people when I really need them, but I'm...

    It Happened...Again...

    I was afraid of this. Four cuts in total. Two on each arm. I did all of them last night. Honestly? I don't know exactly why i did it. It's probably because of pent up frustration and sadness and all the other emotions i can't dare to express. I feel better, now, though, for the...
