    .. after weeks of not self harming. I only made two cuts but one was deep and I needed steri strips. Why do I have to cut deep now? At first I used to stratch myself and now I cut deep and burn my arm. It's weird how self injury can progress just like that. From broken glass and scissors to blades and knives.

    You know, you sound like me..with the whole, progressive thing..

    Anyway. Everyone relapses once in a while. But now that you've made it that long, and then relapsed, you can go further until you don't need to cut anymore.

    aww sorry you relapsed :hug: I'm not sure why we have to cut deeper either... I guess we get immune to too little of pain.. if that makes any sense.. anyway good luck kicking the habit again
