A lot more people do/have done it than we realize.

That's the entire reason I made the thread, and my example was me too. Awkward haha. Yeah I don't know what's wrong with it. I wonder if a non-cutter will actually reply and try to explain to us.

I guessed all of you were talking about yourselves when I started reading this. Everyone was too detailed and emotional about it. Personal experience does that to you. Haha I kind of wish a non-cutter would get on here too. That would be interesting to read.

it can harm you, whoever does this is a freak syco-path.. i mean really why would you purposely cause yourself damage.. you are so dumb, idk if you are considering it but if yiou do there is something wrong with your decision process.

My decision process is just fine, thank you. Spend a few days in my shoes...then you can call me a "freak syco-path."

Anywayy...so you guys all confessed about how you cut so i guess i will too.

My way is kind of pathetic, i just use a sharp scissor since anything worse would frighten me...the cuts are usually on my palm or my hand, and i've had one on my arm, which is now a scar for some reason...you all know that i had nine cuts one time and no one cared and/or noticed...actually i had eight and then no one cared so i made one more....but that was a while ago, i was in a hurtful relationship and my best friend wasn't really a "best"...but i'm mostly better now, because of my boyfriend. He checks my palms after every weekend to make sure i didn't cut myself, and so i stopped just to make him happy. He's always so gloomy, and i really want him to be happy and i don't want to hurt him...so anyway i cut because i hate myself, i have so many negative opinions and it would take too long to explain them all...its better if i don't, because i'm going total butterfly-project and my boyfriend wrote that he loves me on my arm....over winter break, that's what kept me from cutting...no one knows that i did this, just him, my parents never noticed....

You didn't scare me off! Sorry, I've been busy the past few days so I couldn't get on as much as usual. I've cut with scissors before...and razors, needles, knives. Kind of whatever I can get my hands on. So yeah....no one has ever noticed anything on me either.

Yeah, I haven't been on much lately either, sorry!
I just realized that I only told like half of my story here. The reason I included "scratching" in the title is because I did that too, before actually cutting. Then I went to camp with some real blades and my friend told me how to get them out of the razor head. I'm sorta picky with my "weapons of choice" though.

I had cut my boyfriend's name into my thigh once when we were going through some tough times and I scratched it all during school to make it deeper and I picked at the scabs when it healed. But just plain scratching never appealed to me.

Well, I started out like that because I wasn't "well educated" with razors.
