    I decided on my own free will to come here.
    I have been cutting my self for about a month now. I haven't told anyone but my closet friend and my boyfriend. My reasons are family problems and probably just my self esteem. I wish I could just stop. I notice how it hurts people, especially my boyfriend. My friend slapped me when she saw them...
    Any help? I just want to stop this.... but it numbs me. Its like I can't stop crying until I do it again.

    Have you got any professional help?

    Do you know what it is about cutting that makes you want to do it? What do you get from it? I'm asking those because if you can work out those things then often you can work out something healthier to put in its place.

    Welcome to the forum :)

    im so sorry that you feel the need to cut. when you can work out why you do it then thats a starting point as to stopping. talking to someone who is a professional will help because you wont have been the first person they will have encountered who self-harms, whereas im sure the people around you are finding that they dont know how to help, sometimes they can help or hinder you

    btw welcome to the forum x :hug:

    First of all, welcome to the site.

    Like the others have said, trying to figure out why you started cutting is a good beginning.

    I run a support site for people who self-harm; the link is in my profile, and you're more than welcome to check it out.

    Thanks for the welcome.
    Since this is an odd thing for me... I rather not answer those sort of questions on here...

    The beauty of a forum is that you can talk about as much or as little as you want.

    Maybe with time you might feel a bit safer here, but until then, only talk about as much or as little as you want.
  7. That's a warm welcome. :) I've not been on lately, too much to deal with. Dad nearly died around Christmas, and school is crap. People are mean. They don't seem to understand that what they do or say can affect people in such negative ways. This happened in middle school to me, some kid named Renee was picking on me, my bus driver made Renee look at me, I was crying hysterically. I mean, no, I don't go through sexual abuse like most, but I've been in that boat of abuse. Emotional and Physical, my little brother was the cause. Holy buckets~!
    I need to shut up school, need to finish stuff for class.
    Bye bye.
