I started burning myself only a couple weeks ago. I use my hair straightener turned up all the way to do it. I am addicted to burning myself. I'm a senior in HS and I want to be happy but it's hard. My friends are terrible to me and to each other. The worst part is my parents. They don't understand why I'm down all the time and they get mad at me over everything and I'm so stressed I can't handle it all. When I burn, I only have to focus on the pain and everything goes away. I do it everyday because it makes me feel better at the time. I can't stop.
