I need to cut - April 16th 2012, 02:21 AM

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 am in so much pain (mental pain mostly) right now that the only thing that will make the pain go away is to cut myself. I can imagine the blade go across my skin and I could see the blood oozing out. I can imagine the relief I will feel when I do this. I have the blade in my pocket just in case the pain gets too much for me to handle and I need pain relief.

It's been 91 days since I last cut myself and I was aiming for 100 days, but I don't think I will be able to make it to 92 days.

Cathy ok listen to me i know i don't know you but i would first like to say that i care and your not alone. cutting is a very bad habit to pick up and is a very hard habit to break. but cutting is not the answer to your pain, cutting doesn't get rid of the pain it makes things worse when you see the scars you have made. but cutting is something that you can get over i'm living proof of this i used to cut like everyday but then i started opening up and talking about my problems instead and i didn't cut nearly as much.after a while i went on and got professional help for it and it did wonders for me. you to can get through this i know you can i have faith in you and i will be more that happy to help you in any way i can, i don't mind talking about problems you can talk to me any time i will always listen and give the best advice i possibly can. you don't deserve to have to cut yourself and you don't deserve what ever pain you are going through because you are a human being and deserve to be able to live life to the fullest. i'm always here if you want to talk....pm me if you want to talk...your not alone it this fight to end cutting

Oh wow, 91 days is just fantastic!! Seriously, it's amazing you've been going that long. And you know what? You CAN make 100. And 200. Then 365!! Just take it a day at a time.
I know you're struggling, so I strongly advise you to look at the site Blaine posted, and also this thread which list alternatives. Sometimes, the first alternative you try won't work, so keep going until you find something that lessens the urge for you.
Are you speaking to a professional about your feelings? It may help more if you are. It's not healthy to keep your 'mental pain' locked up inside.
I hope things get better for you!
~Kate
