i used to do it a lot in high school, mostly for attention, like a cry for help. I stopped for 8 years. now at 24 when i get stressed or mad its the only thing that will calm me down. if i get upset and dont cut its all i think about. i do it places that nobody will see like my thigh or my back and sides. i wish i could handle anger/stress/sadness like a normal person :(

I was molested by my father and for all of my teenage years and into college I did too. Thankfully when I met my dh and could talk to someone I was able to stop doing it. Maybe you should see a therapist? It might help to have someone to talk too.

Why does that calm you? When you are stressed out and want to cut yourself, does your head hurt really badly? Strange question, I know, but I have a reason for asking it.

sounds like you need to reach out for some helping coping with stress and your life right now hon. this is not healthy for you to keep giving in to the urge , you could accidentally cut too deep sometime

im not sure why it calms me, its like as soon as i feel the razor going accross all of my anxiety is lifted but i'll still think about why im mad and upset. and no my head doesnt start to hurt.

I understand the need. I did it myself in high school. I only stopped because it began to sicken and sadden me more when I saw the scars, than the relief I felt when I caused them. Hope you get the help you need. <3

I think unless you wear pants all the time thats a poor choice on placement. What happens is your kid sees it or someone else and reports you for being unstable?
