    because of cutting?
    Last 2 weeks i cut 2-5 times daily and i dont feel nothing... i am not sad, i am not happy, im tottally empty... is it possible that its because of cutting and does anyone cut so often too?

    Cutting doesn't cause emptiness in my opinion, your mood itself was probably empty.

    And I'm not sure why you're asking if anyone else cuts that much, it's almost like you're trying to be competitive with it.

    well hun... if it makes you feel any better, i was like that for a while too. I felt nothing, my sister was born, i didnt care, my dog died, i didnt care... I still have days like that every now and then, but for the most part it has just kinda gone away

    I don’t think it’s caused by cutting. I had days like that when I cut and when I didn’t cut. I think it’s because I was just so sick of life and so sick of what was going on I just like tuned out emotionally to the world. When your so sick of being in emotional pain it’s sometimes easier to tune out and to feel nothing.

    you really should call your doctor and schedule something sooner. It could be a number of things. It could be depression, could be a load of other things. Your doctor is best to answer those questions

    no hun, i dont think that it has anything to do with cutting, i for one have never cut...

    depression is more likely, but i am not a doctor, so i cannot tell you if you are depressed or not. Please try to make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible.

    Numbness is a common side-effect of both cutting and just long periods of sadness overall. Its an indication that you've essentially become too used to either one, at least thats my theory.
