    I wish I had the right words to tell you or help you, I am a cutter I have been since I was a kid, I know how scary it can get, i am sorry you are going through this, there are times i use other things to feel the pain, sometimes it helps sometimes it doesn't , i place ice cubes on where i want to cut so i feel the stink of the cold, or use a rubber band on my wrist and pull it so it snaps on my wrist and i feel the sting. i just wanted to let you know also that you are not alone, i wish i had the answer for you.

    Hello.
    What professional help have you sought out to stop hurting yourself? Sometimes, if you can't stop on your own, you need assistance to begin your road toward wellness.

    Thanks guys I've used the rubber band on my wrist but it doesn't give me the same relief... As for professional help I've been in counselling for a while but it always.makes me feel worse idk what I can do, Thankyou for your kind messages

    I've cut on and off for about 8 years now and it's always when it seems that everything in my life is going wrong that I turn back to it. This past year has been the worst one yet. If you want to talk some time let me know :)
