    do you like pain? do you like to see the blood?..

    i like the pain.. i cut myself.. i burn myself.. i pull my hair.. i choke myself.. and some others.. but the reason i do it is because i like the pain..

    (it doesn't matter what is pushing you to self harm.. i just wanna know what do you like about it..)

    I don't know. Sometimes the pain helps me concentrate, sometimes I just need to see the blood and sometimes... well, sometimes I just need to. The bad feelings seem to transport me to a different dimension of reality, and the cutting to a different one entirely.
    The cutting dimension is better than the bad feelings one, so I put myself there. Before cutting I feel bad, and as I concentrate on the pain and the blood, I find myself kind of going... numb...

    I can't stand the scars, I hate that they are there. But in that instant when I am doing it, the pain and blood acts like a reset switch for my brain, forcing me to operate on the most primitive level. It makes the pain simple. It makes me into an animal, whose only function is to deal with this injury. Then I don't have to deal with anything else.
  13. the blood. it helps me to cope with my inner pain. it releives my stress. i'm also sadomasocistic, and like all forms of pain. but i usually cut when my emotions get completly out of control, which happens alot.

    the reason i cut, is because it's the only way i can acknowledge my pain and deal with it. i don't show my pain through crying. i can't cry. i just can't. so that's why i cut. because i have no other way to deal with my pain

    I cut cause it makes me feel better, the look of the area, the pain, the high that I can get with doing it.
    I can't feel better without it sometimes- other things have failed, but I still try to do my distractions first, so then self harm stays special.

    When I did cut it was because I hated myself. I have a new way of torture

    I self harm, bcuz it releases endorphins, which num other pain, I do it to get rid of emotional pain and abuse. I haven't been allowed to for months now, as by best friend said if i did it again he wouldn't come visit me, and I can't not tell him, i jist can't lie to him,

    Why I cut.. uhm. I cut when I panic, or when I cant handle the paranoia, because i hate myself, because i deserve it. It makes my head empty, the thoughts will be gone for a seconds and thats a good feeling. Why I cut, the feeling of the blood floating out your body feels good, and the dizzy and weak feeling after it too. Why I burn, dont need to buy every week bandage and people staring at you questioning why i need al of that stuff, dont have to watch out with the blood on clothes, sheets, floor, bathroom etc. Tho the blisters break fast and can leave some really awfull scars.
