Hey, Im sorry to hear about that
Writing in a journal usually helps me get the thoughts about SHing out of my mind, helps get out whatever's bothering me.


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.


Music is life. Start living.

I know what your feeling bout wanting to be normal and cutting deep enough for it to bleed. I always tried hard to make sure I cut just enough to where I got what I wanted but, didn't bleed. I, like you, got really angry and couldn't help myself. It felt good but, too good. The feeling kind of scared me. Did it scare you at all or is it just me?

I was lying to people too but the only person I ever cared i was lying to, or thought twice about not doing it for was my cousin. We recently made a deal that if i quit doing what i do, he will quit drugs. The pressure of that is hard becuase i dont want him to do drugs but, the impulse to have that feeling again by cutting is just killing me!

It's hard because the addiction in cutting is how it releases adrenaline. Which helps a lot when you are stressed, because the adrenaline just piles up. So it's hard and I'm sorry that happened.
Maybe tell one of your friends, "Hey, I'm sorry if you're freaked out and all. But I really want to stop, and I'm going to need help to do so." and generally ask them to help you with getting over it.
Good luck & PM me if you want to talk about anything.
