I have fantasies about cutting, is that weird - November 29th 2011, 06:15 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I haven't cut for 26 days. Everytime I want to, I just picture myself taking out my razor and pushing it onto my skin. I see little trickles of blood down my arm. Are these fantasies about cutting weird?

I'm just a girl that wants to believe in fairytales again...

Hey Devon.

Well done on not cutting for so long. That's a great achievement, and you should defnitely be proud of that.

As for the fantasies, in my experience they're actually quite normal. When you start relying on self harm, it almost becomes a part of you, and so, naturally, you think about it a lot. And thinking about it is a lot better than doing it. I wouldn't worry about the fantasies - they're harmless as long as you don't act on them, and they do fade over time.

Take care.

just because it hurts to go on
doesn't mean the battle can't still be won

Congratulations on making it 26 days! These fantasies are normal. You've become addicted and used to self harming at this point, and because of this it is normal to fantasize about it. Try not to act on them and eventually you will be able to better deal with these fantasies and urges.

Let it come and let it be...
