I personally liked this alot. I use to suffer surverly from the eveil game that is self injury. And i can tell you it is so hard to get out of that state of mind. More people really need to be aware of this topic beacuse people tend to be afraid of what they understand. With self injury it's even harder because half time the time the person who is injurying themselves dont understand. props for doing such a contrversal issue

holy shit that was good

i totally agree with that

well actually there is one thing i sort of disagree with

there is a minor danger in cutting, which is that is creates an even more negative image of themselves, and then could lead to suicide

but besides that i totally agree

Great story. However... I have to disagree with your statement that cutting hurts only the cutters. I am a cutter, and I've seen the pain on friend's faces when they found out, despite my efforts to hide.

So very, very true. (From both a cutter's standpoint and a friend's standpoint.) I'm doing a research paper for school on this, so I was just browsing others. Very well written. Yours is more informal than mine will be, but that's the rule. .

Anyways, I applaud this piece. If you know any good sources or materials on SI and research, I would be much obliged to get a list. Thanks.

I completely agree with you on this issue. I am a cutter and the only reason I'm telling you this is because of your essay. I've only told now a total of four people. One friend knows my boyfriend caught me so I spilled and another author who wrote a story about it and you because the story and this essay touched me. Sometimes I'll be writing a journal in class free-write and I'll accidentaly hint at it or writing poems you can tell they have a double meaning. I am starting to get scared I'm slipping up more and more and cutting less? is this good. Should I just tell someone and hope to god they dont take me to the wacky house? I don't know anymore... tell me what you think.. my email is thanks a bunch...Fate

Hmm, this was written a few years ago, so maybe that plays a part in it but your views are a little bit warped on self-mutilation. Don't get me wrong, for the most part this is a nice essay, but you seem to make the illness seem like a simple idea. It's almost as though your saying 'hey, cut your wrist, it's an awesome way to deal with pain.' That truth is self-mutilation is very harmful, and is a sign of serious mental illness.

Finally a good essay on this site!

Myself, being a cutter, have had to deal with these problems constantly. My parents want me to see a psychiatrist, while my friends that know think I'm endangering my life all the time. Others that have found out think I'm doing it for attention, which I'm not. Good job on writing this one.

i have a friend who cuts her wrists, and this really. connected with me. i hope your giving me a few of the reasons why she does this to herself will help me to help her. on that note, if you know any ways for me to help her carry all her pain, please drop me an e-mail. heck drop me one anyway.

thank you for writing this.

Would have been perfect if you hadn't mentioned you as a person, representing the masses are willing to give help when I am positive that you wouldn't. Nor are the masses. You'd help your friend, of course. But you'd turn a blind eye to anyone else wouldn't you? Society is like that, only they just close both eyes cover their collective ears. Smoking creates income for society, smoking creates income for society, cutting lessens that income because there are less users of cigarettes and alcohole. Personally I don't think you did that well in explaining cutting. I cut, I don't consider myself addicted but I know that it feels good. Anything that doesn't generate profit is shunned.
