    I have been a cutter

    for a year now. And I've been clean for about a month. But the recent events in my life have been getting to me. A lot. My house just burned down. And I'm at a rough spot in a relationship. I have a very bad urge to cut again. Any advice out there?

    I Am Not My Scars

    Like a lot of people here, I have a lot of scars from self-harm. They are mostly on my arms and legs. For a long time, cutting was my only coping method - and I have to say, it did get me through some really tough times. I'm now in recovery. I have my slip-ups, but I have...

    No Regrets

    I have many scars on my body from si, and yeah sometimes I don't like them, but there isn't a single one that I regret. They all tell a story of who I am. They are a piece of me. I get told a lot on here that they make me ugly. I think that's bs. I will never be ashamed of my...

    I have scars and cuts from self-harm,

    and I'm not willing to stop I guess... My appearance is the only part of me that I feel I have control over, really, and even parts of that are out of my control. So I cut. Because I can.

    **Most of Them Caused By Me**

    ~ THAT'S A REALLY HARD PILL TO TRY & SWALLOW ~ That most of my scars are self-inflicted. I caused most of the damage done to my psyche. It was me, reliving every terrible thing anyone's ever done to me or said to me. Letting it eat at me like a poison til all that's left are...
