    I know there's a Last Time You Cut thread, so I'm basing this thread on that one, therefore the idea was not mine.

    I was thirteen, desperately in love. (or so I thought) I carved Haley <3's Allen into my left arm. Luckily the only scar that remained was the <3's part.

    January 18th 2007 around 12:05pm In the woods near the school area with a compass whilst sitting on a tree that fell. Random scratches all over my left wrist stuck with me for life :sad:

    They're not as bad as all the burns from my childhood recklessness though. =/

    I was 24 :biggrin:
    I had done the alcohol
    I had done the sex
    I had done the career/academic suicide

    I needed something new :)

    Now I'm ready to try something else. Like excessive showering or painting garbage bins

    Im not to sure just how old i was but i think about 10-11

    I remember lying under my bed, hiding from my mum who i had had an argument with, i was so stressed i didnt know what to do. i took a compas out my school bag and dug it in.. made a few cuts. only one small scar remaines.. i got the other tattooed over.

    I also remember carving a name into my arm.. what a stupid idea!

    I was 17, almost 18, going through alot of changes and stress. It wasn't even slightly deep and didn't scar at all, but hey, that changed after every cut. More the reasons not to do it.

    I have no idea of the date but it was some years ago! I was around 18yrs at the time because that is when the denial in regards to my depression stopped. I had never heard of SH before this point, hardly even heard of depression. I did not know anyone with depression, nor anyone who had done such a thing to themselves. But we didn't really have the internet back then and these things are usually kept private. I have never carved words or names, i don't think i'm that creative! :dry: I'm glad i never have. Straight lined scars i can just about excuse away, a word scarred cannot be.

    The first time I cut myself from wanting the pain to go away, I was sixteen. I had an ice pick for some reason in my backpack and I was in algebra class. I cut the top of my wrist very deep. I did it under the desk. I remember thinking, "it's so funny that teachers don't even notice."

    I was six or seven i think, after i fell in the playground at school and split my chin, i had to have stitches and my father freaked out, he hated the fact that i had been hurt and he had not been the one to do it, so it gave me the idea to cut myself, and even though the beatings and r*pes were worst than normal, i liked the power, it was one of a couple of things he could not stop me doing, no matter how much they tried to stop it. from that age till just a few months ago, i cut almost every day.

    I think i did it out of protest as my dad had died that year and my mum was always out screwing whatever bloke she could get her hands on!!:mad:
