I'm really sorry about not getting along with your family, that really sucks. Cutting will really only make things worse though. I know that after every scream session with your family, cutting must feel like a release of all that pain, but if you keep it up (which I really, really hope you don't) you'll see that it really only takes that pain and doubles it. Hurting yourself is never the answer, hon. You should stop now before it becomes an addiction; then quitting will be so much harder.
Maybe you can try writing, or blasting loud music, or drawing; some other way to express yourself and let it all out besides cutting.
Of course, we're all here if you ever need someone to talk to (shoot me a PM whenever )

We all need somebody to lean on <3

I am sorry=( But def. stop cutting. It is not helping you in any way. It just adds to the pain and what's the use of that? It can and will get out of hand if you continue. No one deserves to be harmed by anyone, including themselves. I suggest going to a counceler or if you don't want to do that just let, go to a very trusted friend. I do know from experience though (from being the trusted friend) that it can hurt to hear it all as much as it hurts the person going through it all. It can take a toll on you. For that reason, seeing a counceler would be the better choice but do whatever you feel comfortable with. Hope that helps! You can message me if you ever want to vent or anything.

I definately think that not cutting any more would be more positive, if you look around this forum, you will see most people are struggling with this.. they don't want it yet they need it, they want to stop yet don't feel they can. It is addictive, it does get too deep and it can take over your life. You should stop now, and never let it get to that point. It is not a positive way to deal with how you are feeling.. I'm sorry that you don't get on with your family and that there are fights. That must create alot of hard feelings for you and I can see why cutting would help for you.. but there are other ways to manage feelings.. writing, drawing, talking, singing, cleaning..etc.. other ways of letting it out. I think it'd be a good idea to try and get someone to talk to.. a school counsellor perhaps? PM me if you need/want to talk. I have a sister your age, it's a tough age without everything else. xox

Im sorry about you not getting along with your family but i know that cutting will not help anything! Have you tried other ways of releasing your emotions? You could snap a rubber band against your wrist. You can use a red marker to draw were you want to cut. Also you can write about it in a journal. I hope you can stay strong! Good luck! If you need to talk to someone just pm me by the way I get what your going through I'm the same age with a lot of family problems but cutting won't help in the long run

I agree with the others, stop cutting now before it gets out of control. I'm really sorry you don't get on with you family, i know from experience that its a horrible feeling. You should try different ways to stop and not cut, there are better options that won't harm you. I promise it will just get worse if you don't. Feel free to PM me. Stay strong. :-)
