Okay, this is my first visit, so I might as well introduce myself. My name's Tim, I'm almost 18 years old, and I just graduated high school. I've had recurring suicidal thoughts since the 4th grade, but have never seriously acted on them, unless you count cutting. The first time I cut myself was about a year ago. I've cut myself 4 times, the first two were related to a girl that I really liked, and the last two were related to a different girl that I started liking long after I had gotten over the first. But I just wanted to ask, is it common for MALE teenagers in particular to cut? Or am I just a loser for doing something that mostly girls do to deal with their psychological pain?
