    I have started cutting.
    I am no stranger to it. I have done it on and off for six years. I haven't done it in eight months. I thought I was past this. I thought I could make a new life.
    I just cut deeper then I have ever cut before.
    I want this all to stop. How do I stop?
    I don't know how to move past the numbness.
    How do I become human?

    Hi Silver. I'm sorry to hear you restarted self-harming. I know how hard it is to stop (I've been trying to do it for years) and I know how it sometimes feels like it is the "right" thing to do - it's not. We'll never feel better after we do it. It only makes it worse.
    I think talking to someone when you want to self-harm can help. You can always PM me.
    You're not alone, Silver.

    Hi silver did you receive medical attention for your cut? 8 months is amazing I am glad you were able to post here for support. Sorry that you felt the need to cut, you managed 8 months without cutting so at least you know you can do it.

    Hi Petal,
    I patched it up myself. Thank you for the support!

    Thank you so much for your support. It means a great deal. I was so ashamed at work but it helped at the time. Even though its not a long term answer. I find it hard to trouble people others with talking about me.
