    Recently I Cut Myself Because Everthing Got On Top Of Me And I wanted Something To Have Power And Control Over.

    3 Years Ago I Nearly Commited Suicide Without Realising. I Went To Deep.

    When I Cut Now It Don't Hurt Like I Wanted It Too, I Want To Punish Myself.

    To Feel Pain I Had To Tip Malt Vinager On My Cuts.

    Why Doesn't It Hurt Anymore?

    when everything feels out of control, it seems cutting allows you some sense of power and control, i know this feeling and the feelings that i need to punish myself. Perhaps the reason it doesn't hurt anymore is because you have develop a tolerance to your cut.

    Maybe your body is just immune to basic cutting? Your pain receptors have gotten used to it. Please don't do this anymore. :hug:

    If it doesn't hurt, your body's likely used to it, and no personal gain can really be achieved from doing it. I suggest not doing it anymore.

    Hi flayflow. A lot of self-harmers report not feeling anything physically during the act of self-injury. This is attributed to a lot of different things...

    From what your describing, and the intensity of your self-harm, you might actually be dissociating. It might also be a medical issue, something you may want to have checked out.


    Hope that helps.
