Recovery And RelapseI cut. I have been doing so for 10 years. I stopped for awhile, almost like 2 years. I just started doing it again. I cut my arm pretty bad yesterday, as well as my leg a few days ago. I have many scars and i'm not ashamed, although I wish I no longer did it. I'm going to continue to try and fully recover from this. It's addicting to me in a way. Sometimes I just get so overwhelmed, and I have to release. I never really learned good coping skills, and I grew up in a somewhat broken family. I have seen my mom try to kill herself, she's currently in prison. I have "tried" to kill myself, many years ago. I realized I don't want to die, I want my life. And I want to stop cutting, and someday I will.
