4 people who self harm
It's been around a year or so since the last time I self harmed, now when I think back I don't know why I did it. I always hide my scars, and I've never told anyone the truth about how I got them.. I never went to a hospital for it but I probably should have on more than one occasion. I regret ever doing it now, and I'm too embarassed to take off my shirt or where shorts to go swimming or anything with other people because it's so obvious that the scars are from me cuting my self. I still think about doing it but now I know self harm isn't worth it.
im a "cutter". i hide it, so that no1 will ever find out, and i dont cut where it can be seen, otherwise ppl will think im crazy. i do it everyday cos i can't stop. its sik, and disgusting, but i really love it. i cant help it. i have so much shit, that it needs 2 b let out sumhow. i dont think theres ever been any kind of ritual, n theres no set reason for doing it, but a lot of people do, and all for different reasons. no 2 cases of "cutting" will ever be the same. for people who do it tho, research has shown it 2 b a useful outlet for all their pain, tension, stress etc. and 2 me, its no different from smoking a cigarette, because they both relieve stress, whilst damaging ur body. if anything tho, smoking, or drinking, for example, is probably worse, because, both can leave permanant damage to ur body, and can have serious long term consequences. my question about cutting is, why is it so scary, and why is it somethig ppl never talk about? 1 in 10 people do it, or have done it, so y is it "taboo"?
