    I can't speak for anybody but myself. I cut for the sense of relief and control it gives me. So many things in my life are out of my control, but when I cut, I control it. I have been cutting for about 7 years. But lately even cutting isn't giving me that sense of control that it used to. I'm glad to hear that the forum helped you through a difficult time. Stick around, you'll find that SF is filled with people who truly understand your pain and really care about you. Good luck.

    Eh, self-injury isn't really something you can completely understand if you've never done it. There are quite a few posts in the "Self-Harm" section of the forum, this is a post that I think sums it up in a nutshell.
