    Hopeless

    I used to cut myself everyday and I still cut myself today it's just not as often. I've made the promise to stop cutting myself about 5 or 6 times already, and everytime I break my promises. I'm completely hopeless.   I broke the promise again yesturday.

    Recovered

    I used to cut myself everyday. I did it on the tops of my hands and arms. It didn't hurt because I didn't feel real. I was depressed and my home situation was terrible.I got help, was diagnosed, treated and now I am medication-free and I haven't cut myself in 5 years...

    I've been fighting a relapse recently.

    Sometimes when I'm in the car I think about it, when I'm driving. I remember how I used to wake up early and get in my car and sit in my car in the school parking lot with a razor blade. I hid a razor behind the mirror in my visor and just sat there and cut over and over...

    I cut everyday for almost 15 years.

    My arms are emblazoned by scars. It's hard to stand in line at a grocery store and have 4 y/o kids ask "what happened" or "what are those?" I never know what to say. On 11/10/12, I used the blade for the last time. My now husband gave me an ultimatum of "it's that or me". I...

    I used to cut myself constantly.

    I started when I was 12. I don't remember how, only why. My parents are divorced and were constantly fighting over me. My mom wanted custody because my dad is extremely abusive. He abused me mentally and emotionally for years. But I didn't wanna live with my mom because I didn't...

    I started cutting when I was in seventh grade.

    My parents got divorced the year before, but continued living together. It wasn't exactly the smartest thing to do. They yelled at each other on a daily basis and broke stuff all over the house. It was normal for my dad to storm out of the house. I'm the oldest one out of my...

    I started out, sadly,

    by seeing it online and after getting worked up awhile later, I decided to have at it.. Which was a stupid choice. It became something I did everyday after school because everyday was a bad, ****** day. Nobody ever knew - nobody even knows to this day. Currently I'm not...

    This year in school, I have been dealing with a

    lot of stuff from my family and friends. All of this stuff is just tearing me apart and I don't know what to do. I've stopped cutting but do it once in a while to take away my stress and I just don't know what to do and I'm lost. All I want is to have a friend that understands...

    I used to cut myself everyday

    after I'd get home from school. I would get to the point where I would be impatient to get home so I could feel the rush to cut myself. I started with my right arm (I'm left handed) and a year later I would cut my left thigh so both sides of my body would feel the sensation. I...
