  1. people don't understand cutting?
    What I mean is I was watching the movie "Augusta,Gone" and if anyone seen it, it shows a part where Augusta gets sent to a wilderness camp and I guess she is fed up with what is going on around her so she gets the top of a metal can that she opened and slices her wrist.
    My cousin was watching the movie with me and she was like "Oh my God, she is sooo stupid! Why would she do a dumb thing like that?"
    I wanted to seriously smack her! I hate people who don't understand cutting but have the guts to ask "Why do you do it" but then when you explain it to them they look at you like you need to be sent to a Mental Hospital.
    In my opinion, If people really don't want to understand cutting they shouldn't ask or comment on it.

    cutting is a way to release anger and sadness kept inside, people who does it feel adict to it, once they`re used to it. people who doesn`t, thinks about it as something growse or silly(as you do boliao) and that`s the worse you can say to someone who does it. It is hard enough to deal with itself and the pain kept inside, and when someone just say: OMG that`s stupid ,you`re unvalorizing other people needs. Only those who are or have been there knows exacly how a SI person feels, and that`s why i don`t care about what people can say Cutting_the_pain_away, because they don`t have any close idea of what we`re feeling or the way it "helps" in a very stressfull moment..I used to get angry before , but i just learn that SI its too hard and complicated enough fir us, so i don`t hope anyone else to understand it^^

    actually, if you read boliao's post again he says he does NOT thinki it's silly and his question is an honest one. you are misreading what he typed. (hey boliao, sorry, are you a guy or a girl... prob using the wrong pronoun)

    can't speak for anyone else but i cut for a few reasons; to release what i consider overwhelming and unacceptable feelings, like shame, or being emotionally vulnerable; i cut because of the 'high' it gives me (the rush of endorphins.... that's what makes it addictive); i cut because i like to punish myself, 'cos it was drummed into my heart at an early age that punishment is inevitable.

    boliao - if you read some of the stickies at the top you will learn about all the other reasons that people cut, too

    I mostly don't know why I cut, I just do, it makes me feel better for a short while anyway, and it just..helps.

    thanks for clarifying Catherine, No worries Jane.

    I've never cut before so I was wondering if I should start to relieve some of my emotional pain. I frequently use my fists to bang my head and pull my hair out a couple of months back. So I would never think cutting is silly or stupid.

    Actually the word BOLIAO is 'Gone Case' in a dialect. I'm a 35 year old man :smile:

    Do not start cutting. Trust me, you will regret it, sure it might feel good at first, and all of that, but you will regret it, and it will get worse, and you won't be able to stop, just please, please don't do it.

    He´s right this is just a one way street, worse than drugs, because its addictive for the endorphines that your own body produce, please please don´t! PM me if you want
