    i can never draw blood. i scratch myself till my arms look like they're bloody, but they never are.
    it's so easy to make an emotional pain a physical one. I know i'll end up with scars if I cut, i've read the stories, even heard a few that weren't on here. but at the end of the day, i just want to drag the blade across my skin.

    tonight was so bad, i finally called a helpline. it helped, but i know tomorrow night will be just as bad, and i'll want to reach for the knife again, never knowing how deep i'll cut this time

    I'm glad you were able to stop yourself with a helpline. :hug: Have you read the thread for distractions? That may be of help to you.
