    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.
