Hi,
my name is jennifer and I am a cutter and I am not proud of it at all.
I tried to let my dad know that I need help for almost like 2 years now and I am 15 yrs old will be 16 on march 16th.
He said he will get me help never has.
I get flash back what had happen to me in the past and I cry myself to sleep, I even cut myself to wash the pain away, I tend to force myself to vomit a lot and I eat like a pig and then vomit.
I know I have depression.
My attiude towards my friends are mean and hateful.
I quit going outside cuz I am scared.
I surround myself with crowds.
When I was 5 yrs old I was abused all the way to 7 yrs old by my step mom.
I went through rape when I was 11 at a store behind some place where no one will see and I went through another rape in 2004 thats when I was 14 yrs old on december 15th 2004. This time it was a different guy and I have been blaming things on myself and saying that it all my fault and I brought this to myself and it hurts a lot.
I have tried to kill myself so many times but my dad always there at the right time to stop me killing myself.
I went through racism when I was in the 5th grade and other kids hitting me. Then again I went through it again in the 9th grade kids throwing things at me and calling me names like asians are not allowed in the u.S.
I just now cut myself and I have been trying to stop but I can't.
I need help.
Can anyone plzzz help me out plzzz.
I need advice before things go out of control.

Sincerely,
jennifer.

It's no wonder you feal so terrable after having such a traumatis childhood. With issues as complex as these I dont think any of us are in a position to give you advice. I might recamend therapy. It would allow you to work through you issues and perhaps allow you to just get on with your life. If your father isnt helping perhaps speak to someone else, like a teacher and see if they can arrange somethign for you.

I know it is difficult for you but please hang in there, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Take care
xxxxxxxx

To lonelit may help to get a psychiatrist who hopefully would manage your case
cutting is quite common and docs wont be surprised, its usually caused by stress and anxiety and the person feels more relaxed for a while after cutting
look up cutting on the net, lots of info and perhaps support groups

nned help i can't stop cutting myself
you need to seek treatment with someone who specializes in the personality disorder referred to as "borderline." you describe all the classic symptoms of the disorder, the depressed feelings, low-self-esteem, self-mutilation, etc. There is help for you and working as a licensed therapist for the past 20 years i have treated my fair share of this disorder.

Jennifer, I am not a doctor but I do have a friend that does the same thing and I also have done alot of research on this subject. Have you ever heard of something called Borderline Personality Disorder? One of the common criteria for this is cutting/self mutilation, eating disorders, etc. If this is the case, you do probably suffer from depression and anxiety amongst other things. You really do need to get this under control now. If your father doesnt come through, I agree with others here that you can talk to a counselor, but dont rely on that counselor as your only resourse of support. You need to see a professional. If that is not possible because school is not in session, a womens shelter can help you to point you where to go for help.

Good luck to you and please make sure to follow through with getting help. You deserve a bright future Jennifer.

Next time you pick up the knife, scissors, etc., take a deep breath, count to 30, and keep your eyes closes. Put it down and walk away. if you come back, it's ok. Write in a diary or journal how you feel. Just try to do that until you don't feel the need to cut anymore. Trust me I've done the same.

I keep cutting... can't stop
My name's Kaily.
Ive been cutting for two years now, and with me coming out of the closet... it's become worse... not to mention my parents think I'm stupid, because my little sister's some kind of prodigy. I feel like the "other kid" and I'm angry at myself for not being good enough. I was told today that I should go die. I don't feel like I have any worth. I have scars from the top of my thigh all the way down to my knee. I want to stop, I really do. But it's become a sickening addiction. I really want to tell someone, but at my school, there's been several accounts of this, but none of them have been helped. I don't want to make my family look bad because the counselor is my little sister's best friend's mom. It's really tough.I can't seem to get out, and I've tried almost everything I can to stop. Please help me.
