Cutting/Scratching

Jan. 14, 2013 at 11:32 pm

Keirsten: I know you can recover if you believe in it, I mean, I (mostly) have. And I did get to some pretty scary places with it, even though the actual cuts never got all that serious. I just want you to know that I believe you want to get better and I believe that you will, if you work hard enough at it. As I've said, it isn't easy, but it's worth it.

Barrelracer: Keirsten makes a good point. Being ashamed wont help anything, but it does help to know that what you want is to stop cutting so you don't feel that way anymore. That can give you some insentive to quit. But if you allow yourself to simply feel guilty and not do anything about it, you'll only feed the fire.

Hey y'all! I know I haven't been on in a while. I'm going to try to start contributing to the conversation a little more now. I check in every now and then, but I never have time to reply. How are you all? What's going on? I miss you guys! :3

Sorry Keirsten, I meant how are you doing in regular life aside from not having cut? C:

Hi Kate! C: Good to see you. I've been doing well; finished semester finals yesterday. By the end of both finals days I was feeling pretty terrible, but I just had to go online a while and forget about things, I guess. Like one day I took off my glasses after class (which I've never done ever since I got them, not including dance class and sleep) and had my music on so loud I couldn't hear anyone to try and make myself feel better. It didn't really work, but at least I didn't have to deal with anyone!

That is a lot of times to move. I've only moved once, but I was four, so I don't remember it well. It sucks that you're going to have to make more new friends and all. Will you keep in touch with your friends and boyfriend? I wish you the greatest in your moving. *hugs tightly*

Lovely_bones: this thread wasn't originally meant to ask WHY people cut, but why some think that people who cut shouldn't cut. Since then it's evolved to a sort of support thread (I don't know if you've posted before and I've already explained, but here it is again). I can't understand all that you've been through, but some of it. It's true that a lot of people won't understand, but it's possible to find people who do. To clarify, those of us who consistently comment on this thread are cutters that are recovering or have recovered.

Keirsten: I also don't know what "emo" means to anyone...I don't think that just because you cut means you are emo, but that is what a lot of people think. Just remember that you aren't emo if you don't consider yourself such. Also, don't worry about venting to us. If it helps you, it's good!

No, it posted before I explained, I think. I just couldn't remember if I'd explained before, so sorry if I have. Anyway, you're welcome. C:

That's a good outlook, Keirsten! C: I don't know if I said yet (I probably did), but you can call me Rayyn or Smiley. C:

I've been super depressed lately, but today was better than the last two days and I haven't done anything crazy. Not even a little cut. C:
