    i want to cut. i'm going to cut. i know where i want to do it too. my hip would work best, it will be more painful and it will take a while for my boyfriend to find (period). i think i can get away with it. i've never cut anywhere but my wrist and arms before. i just want to be in pain.

    there is good pain and bad. get addicted to the good. go out for a run til you drop, its amazing what those little endorphins can do. they are like the best drug in the world and bonus no comedown or dealers to worry about.

    i feel like i'm letting everybody down by saying that i did cut myself. but compared to how deep i use to cut, it's barley a scratch. I cut 2 days ago and they're already healed. That is the last time i cut, i'm done with relying on a blade to ease my pain. I've found other ways to cope with my feelings and they're somewhat effective. I was having a bit of a problem with my boyfriend today but instead of bottling up my feelings like i usually do, we talked about it and it ended with everybody being happy. Well, i was happy. He said he just wanted me to be happy. But that's a whole 'nother story.
    Now that i'm rambling, i might as well thank everyone for all the support and love. You guys really do help, and i am deeply thankful.
    I hope everybody else can find a way away from the blade like i did!

    :) im so glad hun you talked it out, talking does help.
    coming from a person who used to be addicte to cutting. one thing... well may things that help me from not thinking of cutting is books. i love reading, its like when i read im in a other world. not my own, when i want to escape from reality i read, (im always with a book)
    and i found out writting helps too, instead of harming your self write down your emotions, let there be swearing let there be what ever you want, it your words. and art, i love painting too, the thing with art is there is no right and no wrong get a huge famed canvas dip your hands in paint and express how you feel. :) these things help me, and have stopped me cutting for so long.

    once i read, i forget that i was upset and my mind is all on the story i have read so far:)

    hope this has helped :)
