I am a mom of a teen daughter who has been cutting for years. It took me a long time to understand why. It's a release and an addictive habit. A poor coping skill. In the moment it will give you some relief from whatever negative feelings you are having. Long term if you don't get regular counseling to address the underlying reasons for your cutting, it will progress and you could die cutting too deep. So please find a counselor that you can talk it out with. If the first counselor doesn't feel right, say so and find another until you find someone that you feel a connection with.

Guessed I accidentally clicked the one that said "hell"..

Best Answer

so here's the deal, you said you have panic attacks and you ignore people, I can't address the cutting because I don't understand what you get from it or why you do it. as for the other 2 it's probably because you never really learned to interact with people, it's too damned easy to text someone or e-mail them. you need social interaction, the more of it you get the more comfortable you become with it. so dump the tech and get out and get a life. it's the only way you can get comfortable with dealing with people.

The "how" right now is not as important the start of how. You should seek counselling and start talking these issues out. These feelings you're having are not rare. Do your parents have any clue as to what you're going through?

Best Answer

Yes..but they think I'm only doing it for attention so they don't take it seriously.

Best Answer

That means that they don't have a clue what you're going through. And that sucks, but don't get hung up about it. They are from a different time and different culture. You need a foot in the door to someone that can talk to you, that has some experience in these matters. You should take the initiative and look through the phone book and make a few calls inquiring about experience. Then ask your parents to trust you, that you need to give counselling a try and suggest the one you've chosen. Being assertive in this is no small thing for a girl your age. But you need to do your best at asserting yourself with your parents with this matter.

Best Answer

There could be a lot of reasons why you do it. In order to understand, you should talk to someone you trust about the things you think might be upsetting or causing stress to you. Some people cut as a way of coping and so working through it and being able to find a healthy way to express yourself can probably help a great deal. Talking to a therapist can sometimes help because they have the ability to help you channel your emotions.
