Question carving & SH - May 3rd 2011, 03:19 PM

im depressed and i cut... all the time. but sometimes i get so lost in the dark thoughts in my head i concentrate on one thing... then i end up carving that word into my skin instead of just plain cutting. the first time it happened i was focused on someone calling me a bitch. a week later (christmas eve actually) i was carving the word in all caps on my left thigh. recently ive been treated so badly by my ex-fiance that ive now carved "worthless" across my left arm. i have so many scars that are just proof of how screwed up i really am. does any one else have this tendency? how do you deal with it? keep it hidden especially or just..... make it go away. i like my scars. they remind me of the pain i dont feel anymore. even though there is alway new pain to deal with. i just dont have enough skin to carve myself up everytime i panic.

i cant use myself as a permanent drawing board anymore.

Hey Deborah,
I've got slut carved into my leg as well as bitch and a set of initials. Carving is cutting. So don't try to work specifically on carving words so much as working on your insides ya know?

I used to only cut with out words or anything, then when I relapsed at one point, I carved song lyrics into my shin, and UGLY on into my stomach. then I was just cutting like usual after that. but I haven't for 4 months now

I'm burning out like a bright light, I wasn't ready for this. You're adorable as hell, but I'm glancing at your wrist.
