    Feeling Low

    Hello. I'm just on here looking for someone to talk to really. It'd be good to have pm but either is good. I have been depressed for years. I used to cut myself for about a year. I stopped when I was taken to the doctor about it. I have always been ashamed about it and never...

    I Said I Would Be Totally Honest On This Site.

    So I thought I should be honest in this group and say in the past 3 weeks I have slipped back in to a familiar old habit. On four separate occasions I have SIed. The past year has been extremely hard due to many different things that have been happening. I am confident that I...

    This Time I Got Creative...

    One Tuesday, June 16th I cut myself for the first time in 5 months. I used a sharpped letter opener because I turned in my razor to my therapist. I cut my arms about 20 times. They are never too deep...mainly just scratches. They usually burn a little more.  I tried to call...

    Stupid Me

    I threw my razor away a few weeks ago. I just kept thinking about it & thinking about it yesterday. And then I got home yesterday & reached in my pocket for my key & discovered a hole & no key. *sigh* So, I called the land lady who of course was not home...

    He Wants to Know

    My live in boyfriend wants to know how I can give up meat completely, give up cokes & ranch for Lent but cannot give up cutting. I can't answer him because I don't have any idea.

    Damn

    I was doing so well.  I hadn't cut in months.  A week ago I was just sitting at work & all of sudden I had the most demanding urge to cut. Painfully demanding. I don't know what triggered it; I just felt hugely sad all of a sudden. I felt like the bottom of my world...

    Trying Not to Cut

    I chose this group over 'I used to be a cutter' because while I haven't cut for 2 months I don't fully trust that I have given up so it still feelings like I am trying not to cut rather then I have successfully stopped.

    Oops I Did It Again...
