I'm 13 and i have a really big issue. Whenever i feel down or am just upset or even stress i take my mind off of it with a razor. I have scars all over. I've been doing this for three years now. I refuse to talk to someone about this issue because i feel like everyone judges me. I've had depression for about three years now as well. I just don't know what else to do. I'm also starting to burn myself. I've often times thought about what life would be like without me. The cutting takes my mind off this stuff. I need to do something. My cutting is getting harder and harder to hide. I don't know what to do anymore.

sweety i am 30 yrs old and i too cut myself, when i get the urge to cut i grab a rubber band put it on my wrist and snap it as hard as i can. for me cutting is a way of relieving the pain i feel, so buy snapping the rubber band as hard as i can helps because i am subsituting one pain for another. i hope this works for you. keep your head up.
Hi Mariaponce01, I had thought for a while that the rubberband was a good idea but the problem is just that a subsitute that hurts..Honey I am not putting you down please believe that..I just hate that one pain moves to something else and for some it''s onto soemthing else much worse..
The need to get away from self pain all together and the need to learn to deal with all the aggravation and outside world pain differently..That is why I push exercise hard to get past the cutting, rubberbands and burning..In a way hard exercise is a pain in itself but it is one that gives back to us a stronger body..Mentally a person tires out after a good hard exercise and pysically as well..
It would be so great to one day see that the self injury was non existant..THere is way too much in this world that can hurt us if we are not careful-we don''t need to do it to ourselves..Self injury is allowing what ever pain began the self injury to win again..Self injury allows the bully, the abusive husband, uncle, sister, mother, child to be one up on us..A self abuser accepts what happens to them and tries to find a way out in the way of being able to control something-their own pain..So why not control it creatively by exercise..k
one thing that i've found is helpful, is making the wonderloom braclets by hand. after a while it numbs your fingertips, but your also creating and being productive. and cooking is good too. get a head of lettuce and just swing at it or shave chocolate, i find holding the knife to be helpful, but using it for a purpose aside from hurting myself. i'm clean for almost 4 mos. keep working, your in my prayers.
hi guys,im 13 aswell and cut myself badly i almost killed myself,so one day i decided to stop.Sweetsunshinelove your not alone you have alot of people wanting to help you,please talk to somebody that you trust and believe me its not your parents AT FIRST parents are always ready to reasuure you but talk to someone your not emotionally attached to like a teacher or something xx
I am 14 i also cut a lot i actually carve words into my arm. For all you people that say it doesnt help... It actually does. Sure its not something to recomend or start but it helps you feel better. Talking to an adult makes peoplenqant to cut more. I would know. Just if its getting to the point it nonstop bleeds, alk to a parenent.. Isont want any one dying. If you're addicted to cutting you stop the addiction like any other addiction, time so give yourself time and limit yourself to number of cuts per week. Ihope ican help i love you all your beautiful smile<3
I'm 14 and started cutting at the age of 7. I started going CAMHS a few months ago, and told them about it and they told me a few things: Use an elastic band. Use a water-soluble red pen and draw lines on your arms where you normally cut. I hope this helps xx

I'm 16 and i've been cutting since i was 12. at this point i am addicted and have been hospitalized 5 times. I'm am trying to stop but its hard. I have also thought about suicide but i don't want to hurt my family. I have tried the butterfly, the red pen, ice and a rubberband and it doesn't seem to help. however, watching a funny tv show like himym or dr.who helps me stop thinking about cutting. i also listen to music and it does help. i find the song let your heart hold fast by fort atlantic very helpful. i'm one month "clean" and its a struggle. talking can be helpful, but its hard to start. i found one site that lets you cut the screen called fatal to the flesh, and you can cut the screen. its not right for everyone but it helps me get through the moment!
