    Being yelled at really makes me want to cut.

    My life also really makes me want to cut. And lately it's been difficult to find something that would cut deep and cause a lot of blood shed. Sometimes I feel as if I deserve the pain and blood loss. Sometimes I cry when I cut, other times I don't. I usually use scissors to cut...

    Everytime I cut I know I disappoint him.

    .. But if I know that cutting is a worse pain then whatever pain someone is causing me then why wouldn't i cut? It tells me if cutting is more painful then that other pain will go away... So I will cut until I know the pain will go away.

    But I can't disappoint everybody,

    especially him. So what do I do then? Just cry forever I guess.

    I broke up with my ex,

    because I wasn't ready to tell anyone about my self harm. We never had a real reason to break up, so I've never really been able to get over him. I saw him the other night and the feelings came back for both of us, but he's supposed to be moving to Australia. He told my friend...

    I never in a million years thought I would be

    at the point where I thought hurting myself was the only answer. But I'm there. It is the most real and terrifying thought that has ever crossed my mind. I have never actually done it. I am too afraid of the scars it will leave. But I have started pinching myself so hard that it...

    I always used to, when I was young.

    Now I feel that I want to rip my skin off. All of it. But I'd rather be dead. That would be so much better for all concerned, especially me. The ideal situation would be if I simply ceased to have ever existed.

    I want to cut so badly.

    I shouldn't want to. I have an amazing life and 3 beautiful partners. I shared something I never tell anyone with one of my partners and I think I might have freaked him out. last night he said he was fine with it but he isn't texting me and his wife has been talking to me today...

    Our body feels pain to warn us of danger But it

    also reminds us we're alive that it can still feel That's why some of us seek it out while others choose to numb it Solitude has always been my analgesic of choice But what if feeling nothing is the worst pain of all What if sharing pain connects us to others and reminds us...

    A Year.... Wasted.

    I promised myself I wouldn't, but the promise really wasn't for me, it was for my little brother. He said "If you cut, I can cut too". So, I promised him, and myself that I would stop. I did. For a whole year. It was tough, REALLY tough, but his love, and his courage got me...
