I Want to Cut Myself Now

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,785 People

    I used to see no point in self harm

    because it would only mean even more pain, but now what I see is a different pain that will temporarily distract me from the pain I constantly feel. Even if it's only temporary, it would mean closer to happiness than I feel regularly. I wish I could cut myself in a way that it...

    Best cut is when I close my eyes .

    And just cut three places really fast on wrist. I rather feel the pain outside than in

    thoughts encompassing me again, I cannot focus on anything else at all, I don't want to cut, I need to, can't resist the call Looking blankly ahead, nothing registers, I'm itching and scratching and grabbing the scissors, I'm lying awake and dreaming to be free, Stop resisting...

    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 Hate Myself And Cut For No Reason

    I'm 16. I'm very unsociable and don't like the company of many people. I only have one really good friend, but i go to a really tough school and have to spend most of my time doing homework. I have trouble paying attention to the boring stuff they teach in that awful place, so it...

    I'm a year clean, but right

    now I feel awful. I used to be a strong Catholic, my mum always taught me that being bi was 'weird' and that abortion was wrong. This week I let myself be persuaded into having an abortion by my friend (my doctor thinks it was a false positive anyway). I know I probably won't...

    I had an urge to cut.

    But i just scratched myself with a blade instead. I feel better. Even though i didn't go deep there was a lot of blood. That made it satisfying. If that makes sence? The stinging scratches and blood. I think i can stop if i do this. Or at least the scars will stop.

    and it's difficult to keep from cutting or bruising myself.

    I'm fine. I had a good day.

    There's nothing wrong. So why do I feel like I want to cut? I probably won't: I haven't self-harmed in about six weeks - which I'm pretty sure is the longest I've managed in over a year, which is pathetic - and I don't really want to wreck that. I'm probably just bored or...

    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...

    Cravings

    There are some days, weeks even, where the thoughts of sliding the smooth blade of my knife into my skin flood my head. There's something so satisfying about the pain. The little teardrops of red running over the curve of my wrist. The way my teeth grit, and my eyes plead with me...

    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...

    I've gained an addiction to cutting,

    and now I HAVE to do it whether I'm sad or angry or even happy at times, when the urge hits me no matter where I am or who's around I have to do it. I do, do it.

    My sister found my blade

    and cheerfully asked me if I'm back into paper crafts. I can't take it anymore. I know it's summer and any cut would be noticeable, but I also know when I get like this I will end up cutting by the end of the night.

    I just took a pin and made my first cut.

    At first I just scratched my skin, too scared of the pain. But the mark it left looked beautiful, so i made more and I started to bleed. I'm ready to severe all my ties with everyone involved in my situation. I'm ready to just destroy everything I created just to be away from...
