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?
actually yes i have thought about that. but then i relized that it didn't matter. i can were any swim sute i want it dosen't stop me sure people will see the scares but if they hve a problem with them then they can just chose not to look at me. Also with the matter of a husband, if i do get marryed it will be because we love eachother and if he truely loves me her wont care that i have scares because he will love me for who i am.

I hope you realize that you may change your mind later, and then it will be too late.....kind of like people that get tattoed and then later regret it. Is slicing and dicing yourself that important? Why?

We would like to know more about you. For example, why you have a denegrating name for a nicname. And why you would come on this forum, never having been here before, wanting to know more about people on here.This is a serious forum for depressed, and hurting people who shouldn't be subjected to idle dabbling. If you have words of encouragement, sympathy, or support, that would be different.
I would advice posters not to give out personal information about themselves on the Internet to other people whom they don't know.

In the moment you don't always think of what happens next and sometimes you find yourself praying that there wont be anything next. I'm sure that somedays i may regret putting these scares on my body but unlike your mention of a tatto scares will faid and someday they will become just a bunch of pail white lines. I've also found that for some people the cut themselves the scares are like a bage that reminds us of what we've been through and who we are. The scares are a symbole of the chose we made and for some of us like me a reminder of why i'm still alive.

In a way Misty, I understand what you are saying here, but I can only hope that you will find another way to deal with the challenges of life, and let a good character be your symbol of what you've gone through and why your still alive.

By, rising above your problems by finding healthier ways of coping with them, you can then be a role model for those who are still caught up in problems and compulsions. Can't you see that many of these kids who cut are not as strong as you emotionally? Please think about it.

I did see something very strong and good in your post. I hope and pray you will let this develop in positive ways. It's very important to not only you, but to those you will come across in your life's journey.
God bless :)

Jazz and others, You said it brings you relief, but it actually doesnt!!! Because every cut you make is creating you more problems for you to worry about such as hiding the scars, possible infection, the guilt, what people will think about you when they see the scars, damaging your own body and ruining your physical appearance, the addiction it creates to to continue doing it, so you see where is the solution when its actually creating more problems ????

Eric if you cut just because of someones comments and your so worried about what other people say and think then how come that's not enough to make you stop cutting so people don't say stuff about your scars in the first place??? Like I care about what my friends say about me and if I cut I'd feel even worse about what they would say so that would be enough to make me stop cutting.

No offense but I'm just trying to understand you guys cause my body and health is so totally screwed beyond repair with a disability I have and my hearts damaged and I have a neurological illness that makes my life a living hell and I'm emotionally wrecked and in so much pain but the only thing I have in my life is that I actually look normal and healthy...and I don't want to ruin that too cause EVERYTHING else in my life is SHIT!!

When your so f'ked up as me you hold onto any good normal things you can find and my physical appearance is the only normal thing I have left,and If I actually went and ruined that too I would have absoloutely NOTHING!!

Sure I wish I was a lot more attractive but I actually have two arms and two legs and 5 fingers on each hand that function and make me look like a normal human being so why would I want to go and ruin that as well, especially when Im already disabled and in so much pain, its not like you can just go out and buy new skin or wrists after you've cut the perfectly nice ones you were born with....

So I cant understand why you guys would go out of your way to mess up something so perfectly awesome like your amazing bodies when everything else in your lives probably already feels like crap. Hold onto the good things, there are people missing body parts and you guys have 2 arms and hands that look normal

I'm not here to disrespect you guys and I don't want to hear excuses as I'm sure yous have many but all I'm doing is trying to make you guys think about the good things yous have before you go and ruin that too and make yous realize how precious and lucky you guys actually are compared to people like me who are stuck with both messed up health and emotional problems.

I was touched by your post. Right now I'm sitting here with terrible pain in my back, but you know what? I've already had much worse pain and problems in my body and mind, and God healed everything and he will heal this too. There is no problem so big, or disease or pain so bad that God can't heal it. Sometimes the reason people don't get well is that they don't even know that God can help them, so they don't THINK to pray and ask. Or maybe they don't believe in Jesus, so how can Jesus help someone that doesn't believe? But he can even HELP you to believe and get to know him if you just go and ask. How will you know if you don't ask, and then keep on asking? The more you go to him the closer he will get to you in return. I have a feeling that he sees the compassion you have for the people on this forum that you are begging them to not hurt themselves while you are in such terrible pain and distress. That shows you have a heart and love for people. Anyway,you don't have to be permanently stuck with both messed up health and emotional issues.

To everyone, who came here seeking help good for you, you're all really brave. I know how hard it is to go through having the people you love and trust tell you to get over it or that it is nothing. I have never cut myself but my younger sister has once, and it scared the crap out of me, 'll give you the advice that I gave her. I told her that you don't live life for anyone other than your self, you should only worry about what you think is right, what you feel comfortable with, if you learn something good from someone, use it but if learn something negative to you or others discard it. You live life for yourself not for anyone else, they do not deserve anything and you should never give in, never. It will be exceedingly hard, but eventually you'll learn to be who you are without the opinion of others because theirs doesn't and shouldn't matter. Be proud of who you are, and remember that no one is the same, no one is perfect. People are mean and oppressive not because something is wrong with you, but because something is wrong with them.

My name is Jazz. I've been cutting for the past... 6 months. It brings me relief, knowing I can stop the internal pain that hangs over me like a huge black cloud. I am 15 and going into 10th grade. At school, I have many friends who care about me deeply and I have a loving family, including my older sister. But even with this love and constant knowing of that love, I feel alone, like no one understands anything. In the past 2 years, I lost one friend twice. The first time, he went to jail and came back about 8 or 9 months later. The next time I lost him,. he just disappeared from my life. I don't know where he is. I've also lost three friends in the past year, so the pain of all these deaths and losses has pushed me to cutting. It allows me to feel human, knowing I can be hurt. I feel alive after I cut. I have scars on my legs and some on my wrists. I use a knife when I cut that has been dulled, but it still makes me bleed. I need help. What can I do, besides tell someone? My parents would freak out and my friends don't care. Yes, I told my friends, but they don't believe me, even after I showed them a few scars. So, help me, please!
Thank you,
Jazz
I cut myself, I'm 16 I've being doing it for 5 years on and off, but the past year I've being doing it more regular, the cuts I have done recently are just starting to scab over, so I have to wear long sleeves; but... You do need to tell someone, I've being in trouble with the Police a lot in my past and I have youth offenders involved in my life, and they got my a councillor and someone to talk to about self harm it does help.
