    Sometimes.... when i feel intense anger, frustration or sadness for hours and then cut, i just feel so much better, so relaxed...

    Same here :hug:
    it's just a quick stress relief, but I tend to feel worse the next day or so.

    You mean feeling guilty?

    I know that feeling, although i dont always feel that way after it's done.

    Same. I feel such relief right after..So calm...Usually very tired.
    I don't usually feel guilt until the next day when I'm in the shower and my cuts are burning as the water runs over it. I look and realize what I've done...While picking out longs sleeved shirts for work and then I start to feel guilty.

    I go from depressed to laughing when I cut. Don't know why.
    When I used to do it when I was angry I just calmed down normally.
