Then when I was about 12 I stopped, then when I went to high school and started getting bullied like fuck, I started cutting myself with razors and started bleeding more whilst I cut myself.

I think I have got a bit of a problem.

The last time I cut myself was last week because I got really depressed, but it was the first time in about 5 months... so I've gotten a bit better.
I started at nine, just scratching my skin raw and picking the scabs open again. I stopped around sixth grade. Ninth, I cut with actual razors, once. Then a year later I developed a habit of it. I tried quiting, did well, and I want to start up again, fuck this gets complicatted somedays

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

I've cut myself a few times, usually right after I did something really stupid and regretful and felt horrible about myself. I wanted to cause myself pain for what I did, so I just cut.

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

Yes , ? have ... For the past 8 months i've been cutting myself weekly due to emotional strain and depression , i'm also bipolar ... ? ?? on my upper legs , my wrist , and my shoulder ... I've noticed that its getting deeper and deeper ... Iv refused to get help because of the effect it will have on my father ... ? have no intention to stop , as it is the only way ? can calm down ... Punching walls is stupid because it doesn't help as much ... ? have scars all over my legs , wrist and shoulder ... ? would not advise anyone to ?? themselves , not because its stupid , but because you will then have to live with the scars ... To me , the damage has already been done , so it doesn't matter anymore ... Cutting also sometimes leads to suicide , ? actually want to hang myself because there is no point in trying anymore ... ? would advise everyone who cuts to get help asap ... Don't end up like me

Sorry for the weird symbols in my reply , (the '?' Means 'i' and the '??' Means 'Cut')

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

I never, ever thought I would cut myself. Of course I learned that people did this when I was in elementary school, and I always thought it was so stupid. However, I was diagnosed with depression and bipolar disorder when I got older, and one day I did it. I started doing it whenever I got so mad I felt like I would explode, as a way to get my anger out. I also did it to punish myself when I felt guilty. I still have times when I have those bad thoughts, but now that I'm on medication, I have gotten a lot better at thinking things through and have not done it for a while. I truly wish no one would ever hurt themselves, but I am understanding as to why someone would.

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

Hurting yourself is certainly unnatural, but it is pretty harsh to accuse people who do of being crazy. Everyone has issues, and a lot of people here have mental issues. Accusing these people of being crazy isn't going to help them at all. I think with topics as sensitive as these, people need to be more open-minded, understanding, and a lot less harsh.
Peace

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

Yeah. I was never addicted though, like some people. Just in high stress situations.
I've heard the reasons people cut are often related but not limited to
*control - as in "I can't control anything else in my life, but I can control this"
*self punishment - "I deserve this"
*feeling - they feel numb all the time, so they'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
*transfer - like the emotional pain is too much, so you feel like you're transferring your emotional pain into something physical, something easier to deal with
*attention - it may be a cry for help
*anger - at themselves, or at someone else. sometimes a symptom of displacement, as in the preferential target is for some reason not available (usually because it is socially unacceptable to harm another person, at least more so than oneself), so they displace the blame and anger unto another target - themselves.

I don't cut, I scratch so there won't be any scars. That way no one will find out.

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

I have a friend who I'm worried may start cutting. She recently told me that when she's stressed/upset she digs her nails into her palms/arms. That's why she hates cutting her nails (school rules). I mentioned it to my mom and my mom said "One day she'll start using a real knife." ._. I'm worried about my friend, but idk how to help her :/

Just be there for her, listen to her whenever she needs that and ofcourse tell her that your there for here whenever she needs to talk and such. If you think that theres something bothering her then ask her if she want to talk about it, then she atleast knows your there to talk/listen and ofcourse keep an eye on her, dont let her do anything stupid like that to herself.

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

I was one of those people who would always call people who cut themselfs wierd or emo and would generally look down upon them. Then one day i found myself doing it and i realised that any normal person is quite capable of doing it.

Re: Have You Ever Cut Yourself?

Cutting for 5 years now is like a normal everyday thing to me. I don't mind if anyone sees, or asks, I'm going to tell them the truth, whether they judge me or not And if they did, I wouldn't mind, because they don't understand. It's not when I'm sad that I do it, but it's more of a thing that I HAVE to do, like eating, or showering, I have to do it. But I'm fine with it, I don't mind doing it
