    But now I've sorta developed a habit of getting this board...and I will lean it on a wall. Then I...pull it, and it falls on my knee. It's like...kinda weird...but it hurts. For some reason, I'm trying to stay away from cutting, but I'm getting dangerously close to trying burning. I'm already hitting and hurting myself...

    Does anyone understand?

    It's very hard to quit cutting, I know.....I have been craving self injurey tonight....but I won't give in, not now.

    I understand...when we don't have ways of coping that works for us and we find cutting's a very very hard battle...the key is trying not to and finding something to replace it. After awhile of not cutting it gets easier...but sometimes it's easy to give in....if you ever feel you need to cut of anything contact can yell, scream, go all caps on me I don't care, that's a good way to vent.

    Take Care sweetheart.... :hug: :hug: :hug:

    burning? a long time ago i <mod edit:bunny - methods>. my skin screamed and left a very noticable scar. i told people i was drunk and was hanging out around a stove. anyway, i started to do it to my legs above my knee so no1 would see. it works, but i wouldnt recommend it. haven't done it in a long time. dont really feel a need to. :tongue:
