    I don't know why but I have a fascination with blood. Like I need to see it, pour out of my wounds, or I need to lick it and well I noticed a lot of my poems have blood references in them....I don't feel the need to see other people's blood, just mine...

    am I the only one like this? is that weird? I haven't cut in about two years but still, some times I have the need to see it...

    you're not alone on that. the blood (and the scarring) are the reason why i prefer cutting above other self harm. i don't cut deep. i just cut enough for it to start leaking down my arm. it fascinates me. and when i put a tissue on a fresh cut, it's just as fascinating to watch the blood spread. i have also used my blood to write...

    respect for not cutting for two years, you're doing good! stay strong. the blood isn't worth this.

    I know what you mean, but I still get cravings now and then...I think that it will be like that for the rest of my life...but I try really hard not to do it...

    I thought I was the only one who liked to see my own blood...that maybe I was a crazy freak and no one would say anything...but I'm sort of glad I'm not alone...even if it's not a good habit to have, not being alone in this makes me feel better...

    I have kind of a phobia of blood, but I still cut. I kind of need to see the blood to make sure I'm still alive..don't know if that makes much sense.

    there's actually quite a few of us out there, i've talked with other people about it before but i don't remember on which website... i did put up a poem i wrote about blood once and got comments about people agreeing.
    but, i mean, blood is a part of us, it's what keeps us alive, doesn't it kinda make sense it's fascinating?
