    I am trying self-harming now,

    I had a fairly bad day today, so I'm alone in the kitchen and I thought of trying something completely different and not like me - I came to this site for ideas. Then I thought of a conversation I recently had with my best friend, where she revealed that she had participated in...

    I've gotten deep back into cutting.

    I never thought I'd be back to this part of my life. I don't even know where to being to ease up. every cut gets deeper than the one before. I thought I was done placing reminder scars on my body. it used to give me the release I needed to get away from what was consuming me. I...

    I threw away my blades about 3 weeks ago.

    I self-harmed for about 2 years on and off. When I wasn't cutting, I was burning. It has been tough these last few weeks. I was addicted. I was so dependent of it. It comforted me, and was there for me. It made me feel better. It's indescribable, the way it helped, how it made...

    Well we all go through

    that phase of, "The world hates me! I'll never fit in! I'm a freak!" Well I went through that and sometimes feel that I still am. My experience is self harm or cutting. My first experience with cutting was a couple months ago. I used an exacto knife and was scared at first. I...

    at first I didn't know what it meant.

    and when I found out I realized I did it more. ive only cut myself a few times. people have noticed the scars, and I'm not proud of it. I wish I could get rid of the marks, but they will always be with me for the rest of my life, and I will always hate how only a few marks can...

    I scratch myself deliberately deeply.

    I feel like a burden to tell my feelings so I bottle them up. I hate myself so much. I only told two people about this and I just don't know anything anymore.

    Yeah. I self-harmed. For some reason,

    I can always come up with lies about why there are random scabs on my arms. I feel bad after I lie, but if someone catches me, they'll beg me to stop, take away my scissors, and make me see some random therapist person. (No offense if you are a therapist.) I don't even...

    What's better a knife

    or a blade? hang or drown? Off a bridge or bleed to death? love or hate? Good or bad? I self harm, I wish I had pills or a rope, a shape blade, I wish someone can just kill me cause I don't want to die because of the being I've become.
