Teens cutting. A cry for help

I live in a hole in the ground that is filled with scorpions,

And they keep biting me everyday,

And I just canít take the pain anymore,

So I got me a rattlesnake now,

And I let him bite me,

Ouch!

And do you know why I let the rattlesnake bite me?

I let the rattlesnake bite me, because it helps me not think so much about the scorpions biting me.

Does that make sense?

I didn't think so either.

I stsrted out cutting and smashing myself in the head with a baseball bat (No there is no brain damage) But I want to address parents that have suicidal children if I can just help one child and their family I will die with a little self worth. So parents get your notebooks out. If your child is having nightmares thats a big warning sign, if your child starts reading strange books its a warning sign, if your child is bringing home new friends its a warning sign, check your childs pupils regularly, sit your child down and tell him/her that they can tell you anything no matter what even if it is that their dad is molesting her/him, parents when was the last time you looked in your childs/teens room? Do it now! Monitor your childs computer sites BIG WARNING if your child is depressed keep a close eye on them. If your child tells you they are seeing and hearing things (spirits) BELIEVE them. And if you cannot help them FIND HELP. If your child is a cutter you have missed all WARNING SIGNS, take your child out more, make sure you KNOW your childs friends, take time to sit down every day and talk to your child. Parents please take heed to my warning signs as we are in a new era called the EMO SUICIDAL ERA. I hope this helps someone. I love you all

Medical records suck. Scars suck.

Physical scars are the worst though. I have huge ones on my arms. And a terrible medical record. Can't get insurance and I find it difficult to get anti depressants. Its stigmatic. Never tell anyone you are suicidal. Tell them your depressed. need medication. if that doesn't work tell them to up your dose until you feel nothing at all. Try Reading books, you can escape into a better world that way, you can be someone else. Its an Ego boost for sure. I guarantee if you read you will feel 100 percent better. You will assume characters in books and you won' have to think about who you are underneath. You can be whoever you want. Books are better friends than people. Research things... discover things. Go for a walk just cause. Do things that matter and fuck all the rest. All that matters is what counts. You will only be happy if you find what matters to you. Learn... grow apart from people. Hanging around people too much can confuse you... people need time alone. Time to do things just for themselves. People are always fucking clouding that!

But stop cutting. It will cause more psychological damage than any inward problem you may be having. They are permanent. You will never feel sane or pretty with them. People will always look down on you. Regardless of what they may say. They will pity you. And pity is disgusting.

Im 14 and I cut. I dont know why. I have a great life but there are times when I feel absoulutly alone and the worst part is that I know thats not true. I lost a friend. I hurt a couple more. And I probably screwd some up. I cant stand this anymore. I have these feelings like no one likes me. But then theres this one guy. Alejandro. he knows about how I feel. But not about me cutting. Hes always there for me. But im scared the I will lose him. There are times I cry so much that when I stand up or just move the slightest bit, I get major headaches. Sometimes when Im in school I have sudden urges to ask my teachers or freinds if they have a babypin or someting really pointy. At home I get so sad that I lock myself in the bathroom and just burn myself with the straightner or curler. I feel so bad. I dont want to do this anymore. I want to stop. I think im to young to ruin my life like this. I dont know what to do...

I started cutting last week, but idk, all the scars that are let behind its crazy. There are so many thinkgs I feel and think, that I feel the need to cut to get them out. I am a person who likes to be alone, but I am a danger to myself. I over and over again read that once you start, it is hard, crazy hard to stop. But i started also to try and stop my other addictions. I can see that this will not work out. It's been 2 days since i've cut myself. i really do not want to do it again. Never.

Cutting is NOT cool.
The compulsion to cut yourself is a type of being in prison, a sort of bondage. You don't have to live that way.
Think of what your life would be like, 5 years from now, 10 years, or 20, if you even lived that long. Think of what your body would look like.

Yea but like a silent cry for help. I cover up, I don't want people to know. But cutting makes me feel in control of my life. Like it's the only thing I can control. After being F**ked by your family members I don't think "cutting" is so weird. It dulls the real pain. My favorite thing to do after cutting it to scratch my arms till they bleed when I'm at school or work. And it's great that nobody knows. If someone found out and bothered my about it. I think it would ruin it for me.

Then, how is that a "silent cry for help"?

Excuse me, but I'm trying to figure out how your post makes sense. You say it's a silent cry for help and then you call it great that nobody knows, and that it would ruin it for you if someone found out. Well, they WILL find out when someone sees your arms sliced up like a Philly Steak Sandwich. It's just a matter of time.

Do you ever go to the beach, or the pool? Would you want your girlfriend sliced and diced like that, and find that attractive? Just wondering.

I personally think you need to find a new hobby.

How about turning to something that really works to cope with your pain???

Surely, if you keep this up you will end up one great big scar tissue, and scars don't go away. Girls shouldn't have to cut themselves to try and deal with life. Let Jesus help. He can you know.

What was it that started the cutting. I mean, did you hear about someone else doing it and thought, "I'll try that too." Did you just get so angry or sad that you thought you would try to kill yourself but stopped halfway. I'm just curious. The reason I ask is that when you get injured your body releases its own endorphins the natural 'painkillers' that are very similar to opiates. And like opiates it can progress as your body becomes tolerant to the effects. In essence like heroin one of the most addictive drugs, i wonder if you feel like you are addicted to cutting?

Yes, Emily, I hear you. You probably can't stop on your own, without help. That's what I am trying to tell you. Myself and many others turned to Jesus Christ, the Divine Physician and received help, total healing and deliverance from all kinds of mental illnesses, addictions and any number of problems, including cutting. Cutting is destructive, and also tends to become compulsive.

I cut as well. Not as long as you but i've seen the point you are at. You can do it but you have to set all focuse on stopping. If you want to do it without all the doctors and people putting you under a microscope. You need to be sure that it is what you 100% want cuz if not you have a high chance of relapes.

How about stopping cutting because the scars are ugly, you can't wear a swimsuit, or...when you get married, your body will be full of scars in front of your husband........and....they last a lifetime and can't be removed?
Ever thought about that?
