2. What part of your body is most affected by it?

Posted October 12th 2011 at 11:32 PM by Lovespentinthedark (This is not the end of your story....)

What part of your body is most affected by it?
My upper thigh is affected the most. I started out on my arm, but I started doing it more often, so it became harder to cover up. I don't wear shorts that come above my knees, so I did it on my thigh. I did it on my arm a few months ago when I tried to kill myself, though. Even though my family found out i cut, only my boyfriend has found out about my thigh. I have too many scars there and I don't want anyone to see them. My boyfriend saw them...

1. How long have you been self harming? Discuss why you started.

Tags cut, selfharm

I have been cutting myself for almost 6 years now. But, I have been clean for about a month. Yay!
I started because a "friend" told me that it would help me feel better. So, I tried it. I just needed something to take the pain away. And it did. Everytime I did it, I became numb. It felt good. If I didn't do it deep enough, though, I would be in pain. So I have always made sure to cut deep. :\

(Triggering:Self Harm) Bad place to be in.....

Posted August 15th 2011 at 04:21 AM by Lovespentinthedark (This is not the end of your story....)

I am in a bad place right now.... I keep thinking that I am a complete failure for not being able to finish what I started. Twice. Twice I survived when I shouldn't have. I don't know anymore if I want to be here anymore. I love this site because I can post anything and nobody will judge me.... I just need to vent I guess. It's late and I can't sleep and I am going crazy inside my head. I just don't know what to do anymore. All I know is that I don't really want to be here much longer. The only...

Tired of crying, sick of trying

Posted July 20th 2011 at 05:47 AM by Lovespentinthedark (This is not the end of your story....)

I am trying so damn hard. I can't take this. I'm supposed to be recovering?! If I could find my damn razor, I would cut myself. I have been cut free for how long now, and as soon as I want to do it, I can't. I am tired of hiding everything from everyone I know. Especially my wonderful, loving boyfriend. I HATE hiding things from him. We have been together for 2 years and 6 months, and yet I hide this from him.
Plus, he leaves in less than 2 months for Marines basic training and then...

I just need help....

Posted June 18th 2011 at 06:04 AM by Lovespentinthedark (This is not the end of your story....)
Updated July 20th 2011 at 05:50 AM by Lovespentinthedark

So, I was addicted to cutting from 7th grade until 11th (I just ended my Junior year), but in January I went to the hospital for trying to kill myself. I went again in March because the week I spent in January didn't do much good and I tried to kill myself again, but this time I asked for help before I cut too deep. I have ugly scars all up and down my arms and legs and I hate them. I haven't cut since April, though, which is a big thing for me. Over the past few weeks, my dad and I have been...
