I used to slice my body with anything I could find: Scissors, knives, fingernails, backs of cell phones, you name it, I've already thought of it. I stopped doing this my Freshman year of high school, and have since only done it a couple times over the past few years, the last time being about 6 months ago. Lately, though, my mom and I have been getting into fights in which she calls me useless, a mistake, and a worthless liar. To cope with this, I've been punishing myself by throwing away things that are important to me, and writing everything I think true about myself all over my skin with a black or blue Sharpie. These instances have become more and more frequent, and I have begun getting the hard to fight urge to cut again. I can't talk to my parents about this, my friends won't understand, and the guidance counselor of my school is good friends with my mother. Any advice?
