    I'm Scared For Myself

     A lot of the time I feel alone, sad, and all the stuff that goes along with that. I've never actually "cut" myself. I started by digging my nail into the side of my thumb. Then, by then end of the day, I'd find my entire thumb and part of my hand covered in nail...

    When Im Frustrated

    i hurt myself sometimes. im trying to stop. if i am frustrated, angry, depressed, or sad or upset for any reason i want to cut myself. sometimes i pacify myself by hitting my head or arms on things, or choking myself. but i feel the need to cut myself and it never goes away.

    This is it. I give up. I'm sorry for giving up but I can only take so much. I've lost to many people I care about and I'm worried of hurting another. It's best it's all over now.
