    Trying To Destroy My Kidneys

    I'm trying to get some form of kidney damage. I've quit drinking water, all I drink is soda and Kool-aid (which has a lot of water in it... I'll probably cut that out). I would love for the phosphoric acid to eat away at anything inside me. I really want to feel the sharp...

    Sometimes I feel like I want to kill myself,

    that feeling just randomly hits me at full force and i feel like my life is out of control so i cut myself or burn or sometimes I starve myself just to think and feel about something else, to get my mind off of it.

    It Made Me Feel Better.

    my bf is quite blunt and he will say I'm kind of fat. I hate my weight and it hurts my feelings a lot. Im very emotional. And I hate that so when I get really upset I used to bang my head into the wall because all I could focus on after that was the knot on my head. But I...

    I Hit Myself

    I don't do the typical cutting thing anymore, it doesn't get my anger at myself out. I punch myself really hard all over my body but mainly on my arms and legs. I stopped doing this for a bout 6 months while I was severely anorexic because the aching hunger was enough for me to...

    Promises Make Perfect?

    When I was in fifth grade I started cutting. My friend found out, grabbed a piece of glass and slashed his arm four times, deep. He said he wouldn't stop if I didn't. It hurt me so much watching that blood dripping down his arm and down into the soil then watching an ambulance...

    Like when making coffee,

    if I'm not careful, I burn myself. DX And today I hit my elbow on my desk in class today. I'm sick and now I have a bruised elbow. Great way to start the week. Lol.

    Everyday...

    I have been a cutter for about 2 years now. I was caught a few weeks ago and now my wrists are checked on a weekly bases. Of course they are too stupid to check my hips and legs. I love the feel of the corner of the blade cutting into my skin and watching the blood leak out of...

    I Think Everyone Hurts Themselves...

    maybe not physically but emotionally or spiritually or whatever else. I used to hurt myself physically but not anymore. But I do hurt myself with I guess other people's help? I don't like it, but I guess its just a habit, or if I feel the need to cry and I can't cry. Not sure...

    Do You Really Understand The Emotional Hurt ?

    Do people really know what we go through? They are so quick to judge you just because they find out what goes on. But do they really know what is happening ? No, they don't . They will never understand the emotional lain and the feeling that no one cares . People don't understand...

    The Only Reason I'm Hurting Is Because Of The Cut

    My dad walked out a fortnight ago, the 11th of December 2009 to be exact. He came into my room before he left to remind me that he still loved me. It wasn’t until he’d left my room that I woke up enough to realise that he was leaving. For the next week I lived in a bit of a...

    The Hate I Have For Myself...

         I don't know when it started... feels like awhile ago. But I've started to hate myself. I've started to realize how gross and messed up I really am, and how much a terrible person I am. I'm awful. I'm disgusting, gullible, stupid, lazy, and selfish.     I punish...

    I Don't Cut Or Burn Or Anything Like That... I Could Never.

    All I do is scratch my body all over before I go to bed every night. I only leave the white/light red scratches. They're always gone by morning. I don't want to bleed all over my sheets.

    I Have Been a Scratcher

    If Only...

    I only hurt myself when I'm angry. When I feel a little victimized. I still don't really know why because I don't really have a reason. I know why I started doing it, but not why I continue. You see when I was 13-14 I became depressed. And I thought, since I was getting sad and...
