Blood? - December 10th 2010, 12:55 AM

This is just a question I thought of randomly. So I've heard of people who cut for the pain and the relief, or for the feelings it gives them...but who here is like me and cuts for the blood? I'm just curious to see how many others are like me. If this is too triggering then feel free to remove it.

i did not SI just for the blood, but it was a factor when i would start. I had weird rituals about it, if that's what you're talking about.

That was not the reason why I cut but I did enjoy it

It depends on the type of 'weird rituals' you're talking about. But yeah, that's kinda like what I do, except I do it just for the blood and the good feelings that come along with seeing my blood.

I know what you mean. I don't feel relief unless I see the blood, the pain can help if im not in a position to actually draw blood but my goal when I cut is definitely the blood.

yeah. i can relate to feeling like it was my goal to draw blood. But also i would have to touch it and then wipe it off but i went through phases where i would keep the tissues too. I hate to think about that weird phase.

I cut because of the feeling but then I'll put medical tape on it and rip it off once the blood stains through, stick the tape in my journal and write all the reasons I made the cut on the tape

If I'm super upset then I usually have pain more on my mind. But most of the time that I cut I'm not really upset, and in those times I do it for the blood! Just the sight of it relaxes me. Blood red is such a beautiful colour, and the way it flows and drips reminds me of rivers and raindrops. So yeah, I usually do it for the blood too xox
