    Does anyone here burn? I burn myself with lighters, cigarettes, flat irons, anything. I don't know why but i prefer burning over cutting. I've cut before and it was really messy and took forever for the bleeding to stop.

    Does anyone else find that when you injure yourself it doesn't hurt or if it does it doesn't bother you?

    I don't nor have ever self harmed, but I have a very good friend who I don't hear from nearly as much as I would like who used to burn, not sure if she still does but it's not the sort of thing to heal very well.

    Yes and yes..Hm. Try and be as safe as you can be with it. :hug: My PM box is open if you want to talk or whatever.

    Yeah, I've always been more a burner than a cutter.

    Gets a bit outta control, especially if you neglect to tend to it carefully afterward. Be careful.

    It's not that it doesn't hurt, for me; it's that it's welcome pain.

    :hug: Y'can PM me if you need a chat. Sorry you're dealing with it.
