    I want to get blood somehow. I was too much of a chicken with the knife. I tried biting. I left some deep marks but I've yet to break skin. Hopefully soon :heart:

    Well this is potentially a nice way to share tips, lol. I have done other things, but don't particularly want to say what though.

    Warning - this is wierd. I hope it's ok to write this. I just really need to tell someone.

    This is really hard to talk about. I haven't told anyone but my therapist and I don't think that anyone will understand. But maybe you guys???

    I am not advocating this, I just started doing it one day. When I go to the bathroom and wipe myself, I do it until I see pink/red on the toliet paper. I am usually in some sort of disacciative state when I'm doing this. When I admitted it to my therapist and she asked me why I thought I was doing this, I said it was probably a way of punishing myself because I was sexually abused. And if I wipe hard enough, then maybe my vagina will go away.

    Pretty F-ed up.

    Well I've cut the words "pain", "sad" and "die" on my legs. The scar tissue is still there. It's still cutting, but a little different I guess. I'll also bite if I can't get my hand on my razor. Nothing serious with the biting though, just a quick jolt of pain.

    I used to punch myself in the face when I was eleven. Or bang my head on the wall or punch a cabinet door, just so there's something that'll come back so I can punch it again. Now, I cut mostly. But not too often anymore like a year ago. During rare times I "drown" myself to sort of asphyxiate myself. Once I almost didn't come up for air anymore... I've thought of burning, but I've always hated the feeling. Dying in a fire is one of my most hated ways to go.

    I'm not saying what I've done. So lets just say I have and I regret it.

    Cutting, Binging, Purging are the main ones. I skin pick on my fingers as well till they bleed, I pull out my hair... I risk it with OTC tablets especially when mixed with drink... Not proud of it, was improving more recently though things have gone pear shaped. I also do something else which is just fucked up too much for me to ever talk about it, it's something I'll take to the grave with me.
