So sorry to hear this. But you will a better knwing that your not the only one facing your dilema....

....when people are down or hurt etc & they cut they feel pleasure...then emotional pain, which makes cut again - or so it is with me.

Try using distraction techniques - granted, harder than they seem, but they really do help if you want to stop cutting. 'Cut' yourself with a red marker. Write down all the nasty words you can think off & then rip the paper into shreds.

I hope Iv helped someone..if you ever want to talk about what your going through (which isnt your fault) feel free to PM me.

I'm sorry you're feeling like this. Is there anyone you could talk to about how you're feeling? Also try and find other things to do instead of cutting. Go for a run/walk, dance like crazy to your favourite music, express your feelings via writing, punching pillows, holding ice. Anything as long as it isn't harmful to you. Stay strong! =)
