does anyone else cut in their sleep?... - March 31st 2011, 11:34 PM

i don't know what to think of this. i woke up last night with my scissors in my hand and my legs and hands were bleeding. i think i may've cut myself in my sleep... i don't know if this is normal? or even if i did cut? or maybe it was just a coincidence?

fuck, i'm really afraid.

Re: does anyone else cut in their sleep?... - April 1st 2011, 05:28 AM

I often dissociate when my flashbacks start and when I dissociate sometimes I end up self-harming and I don't know that I am doing it. I only realize it when I come out of the dissociation and I'm bleeding every where. It is EXTREMELY scarey because you are hurting yourself and you don't even know it. I worry that I am going to end up cutting to deep and not even knowing it and unintentionally killing myself. I haven't found anyone else who goes through this so I'm glad that you posted this (not glad for what happened though). If you ever want to talk feel free to PM me.

Wow that seems really strange. Nicole gave some really good advice. But I think I might have an idea as to what happened. I believe you were sleepwalking. Has anyone ever talked to you about this? Has anyone told you, that you were sleepwalking? That is what it sounds like. It seems you were sleepwalking, and you cut yourself while you were. I would suggest that you just throw away the blades. That is the first step. I understand that it is difficult for you to quit. You don't want to feel the pain from the blades. I don't want you to harm yourself. I am really concerned about you. If you want to quit, we are here to get you through this.

I had a similar experience which was the cause to me actually properly slipping up again after almost a year -.-'
I had a dream that I did just one cut on my arm, I look at my arm later that morning and turns out I'd actually done it and it either wasn't a dream or I sleep walked and just dreamt it, either way it was scary.

Nooses give,
Gas smells awful,
You might as well live.

Is it possible it happened just before you fell asleep?

I have done strange things after going to sleep and not remembering it the next day.
It is possible you were half asleep when it occurred.

It is a scary thought of this happening and having no control over it.
If you are worried about it happening again you can have someone sleep with you and keep a eye on you

Drug and alcohol use could also be a reason.

Stay Strong!

thank you everyone.. your replies mean alot. (: glad i'm not alone going through this.

i think i may've slept walked.. i've been told i sleep walk before, and have woken up in some strange places. :3 i was also drinking earlier that day. that may've been a factor.

i didn't throw away my blades, not yet, but i moved them out of my room. a first step.
