Is this weird? - December 23rd 2010, 02:13 AM

I'm new here, so sorry if I do something wrong
So I cut myself a few days ago. It wasnt because I was sad. I dont really know why. I usually can't stand the thought of knowing I'm going to get hurt physically anyway, but I barely remember it. I think I was in a more numb state. I know I didnt do it for the pain though, cause it didnt hurt much. It kind of scared me when it was still there the next day and I acted different for the next couple of days.. I've only done it once, and I hope I dont do it again. The easiness of it scared me.
And I know this sounds psycotic, but I also cut a heart into my ankle last night 'cause I want it to scar and look cool haha. I like the thought of permanent things.Maybe thats it :/

Also: I think this is a problem for a different thread,but I think I'm addicted to mental pain. The main reason I'm on here is because I'm scared it might be going to physical too

Any type of hurting yourself intentionally is not good but I would not call you wierd for it. It is just something that you should try to never do again because it is not good at all. It can get out of hand. Cutting is like a drug, once you get going, you can't stop. There is pretty much always a reason behind it though. Have you been going through family problems or school problems? They can trigger cutting for some people.

Thanks everyone
I have been going through some problems recently, but I've struggled with depression on and off for a year or two now, and this is definitely not the worst it's been, but it is the first time I've cut

i dont think thats weird, because sometimes I think I first started cutting for no reason at all.

Last day I cut: 7-13-2010

I believe in everyone that I help that they will get over whatever they are struggling with.

I regret nothing in my past. My past made me who I am today.

Well I hope that soon things will get straightened out=( Please try not to cut anymore, find other ways to get rid of stress. Punch a pillow or throw a book at the wall, or shut the door and scream as loud as you can. Anything but cut yourself.
