    I have this strange impulse to nick a vein just to watch my blood run loose.
    It's not so much about the pain, rather than it seems necessary - I feel like I would feel a lot calmer if I could sit there and watch the blood run down my arms. Like it would somehow make things okay.
    Does anyone else get this?

    I feel like this all of the time. I feel dirty from the inside, like maybe if I just let it out little by little I'll be clean again.
    I hope you can resist, love. *hugs*

    I feel exactly the same way, I just found this forum and now I'm really glad that I did. I'm not happy that anyone feels this way but I am glad to know I'm not alone

    I know exactly how you feel, and I have the scars to prove it. It might be different for you, but I think the reason I did it is to make the pain visible. The blood represents the pain I feel inside, and by seeing it, it's easier to deal with.

    That's how I felt tonight. I just sat down and watched the blood come. It's strange, it kinda makes me feel like I'm a real person if I can see the blood
