    I started to self harm 4 months ago.

    It was never suppose to be anything, the first time i did it i just did it to see how it felt. Then as things got worse, the selfharming increased. And now every time something bad happens to me, I turn to my razor for help.

    Describe What It's Like To Cut.

    Well, go to the beach. And walk into the water blindfolded. You just keep walking, you don't know where you're going. You just know that you're going deeper. Depression has blinded you. All you know is you're going deeper. Now just keep going until you drown. You want air, you...

    Most of the time, I just blast suicide silence

    and the thoughts go away, but it hasn't been helping lately and I've been doing it more. Ive stopped eating recently and every time I eat I do it again. I'm not specifying because I use different methods.
