Have you/are you self harming? How does it make you feel?
Only answer if you understand plz!

How does it make you feel? For me, it feels it helps just feeling the pain on the outside and seeing blood, it make me feel alive, a way of dealing with things. How do you deal with it? Have you told anybody/doing anything about it? Nobody understands how i feel, does it make you feel worse if somebody says to you, its stupid? I just think not to worry about them, cause they just dont understand. Do you believe that SH is a way of saying you need help?
Additional Details
I said only answer if you understand....so dont bother to answer when you dont have a clue,

cutting yourself or harming yourself indicates that you just want attention. come on, we all know you dont have the balls to kill yourself, so just stop, it makes you look retarded. im sure you come from a rich family and have everything you want, but for some reason its still not good enough. i mean, what could happen, you got a bmw instead of a mercedes on your 16th birthday. grow up please

No of course not. What a silly thing to do!

just shows weakness.. self inflicted pain shows you cant handle life..

I often trap my balls in a drawer, just for the hell of it.

blank vision
ok ,it feels good but its bad like sugar ,gives you pinkish day and dark end with many flesh on your bones
please stop doing it

i know what you mean about people not understanding.
doesnt seem to hurt anymore though, it never bleeds enough. i rember when it used to stop me feeling so numb though ...someithing kind of comforting to see your own blood...like your still alive...!
i dont think self harm is a way of asking for help ...more of a way of dealing with feelings ...but im sure people will disagree with that.

I think the most important thing you've written is 'it FEELS it helps'. In reality, it only makes things worse. If you depend on getting that feeling from cutting yourself, you'll start to need to cause more and more pain for it to 'help' you.
The best thing to do is tell someone how you feel and think of other ways of dealing with your problems.
For me, stopping self-harming was the best thing I ever did, and I'm sure you'll find something to replace it, like writing a diary or poetry or something that takes your mind off things.

I have hurt myself in the past, and yes it is a form of saying you want help. But, it's dangerous and will leave scars on you forever.
I used to cut for thrill; I was having a bad home life and I cut to make sure I was still here. I told only my boyfriend and 2 best friends that I've ever cut (not while I was, after). And caught only one person noticed while I was cutting.

I stopped because I know I'm better than my moods. If I can stop cutting, I can stop feeling bad. I've never listened to anyone when it comes to feeling stupid, because they don't know what it's like. Sure, we all have bad lives, but some are worse than others and people have to find ways to cope. And self mutilation is a way to cope.

Im me who are you?
It made me feel good at first.
I guess its cause i couldnt control my emotions so controling physical pain made me feel on top of it.

Now i regret everything. My arms look ugly and i cant wear a tshirt or tank top without ppl asking me questions or staring at my scars.

Dont do it... seriously dont..

Yes. I do it. I want to stop but I can't because it makes me feel good. It just takes me away from whatever is bothering me because I'm too busy figuring out how to hide the scar... hope that helps.

I cut because if I see blood, I know I've done something to take everything away inside. Only two of my friends know, and I didn't even want one of them to find out.

some answerers are being so insensitive. The whole point of self harming is to release inner anguish that does not come out when you've cried/tried to deal with whats bothering you. It does not mean that you 'dont have the balls' to kill yourself. Self harmers are not suicidal, they are in emotional agony. And its not for attention, most self harmer HIDE there scars because they are ashamed.

Now to answer the question. Yes i have self harmed before i was really upset about something that had me crying for months and i just could not get the emotions out it was like this heavy weight that kept pressing on me from all sides. I eventually got so upset and hysterical that i sort of disassociated and felt like i wasnt real. i think thats what the mind does when it cant cope with something, it detaches itself.
It was really scary because i thought i was going insane, i just went completely numb. When i cut myself, it did hurt but the pain was a release of the emotional hurt i was feeling. It really calmed me down. The throbbing pain was welcome, it confirmed that i was there.

No ive never told anyone. And yes, i definitely believe that people who hurt themselves are in desperate need of medical (physical/psychological) attention

i don't self harm anymore but i did when i was at school, i was depressed, things had happened i blamed myself so i guess i was angry and thought i deserved the pain. i did want help but i didn't cut for attention, it was mostly on my leg where no one ever saw. when you bleed a certain type of hormone is released which kinda makes you feel numb on the inside which takes away the pain on the inside but only short term. i do regret doing it because of the scars but it helped me when i needed it.

Yes, and after wards I feel absolutely appalled with myself. It makes me so angry when I see people ranting about how pathetic it is to be attention seeking. Like someone else said, why hide the scars if you want the attention! They are so misguided. For most it's nothing to do with wanting to die. It's just a form of release. Some people deal with stress by hitting the gym, others hit the bottle or take drugs. Some scream into a cushion, others self harm.

i dont know who i am?
for me it just helped escape that pain inside and concentrate on a different pain for a while it really helped me to escape

and for the first answer about not been able to cope with life, not all of us are born with a silver spoon

yes i'm a self harmer. it makes me feel in control, it takes my focus off of the pain and distress in my mind. but afterwards it often makes me feel like a failure and guilty, so in some ways it doesn't help.
i've told my therapist, and my parents know now as they came to the sessions.
in some ways it does make me feel worse if someone say it's stupid, cause it just reinforces my negative beliefs of myself, and makes me think that i am even more of an abnormal freak. but in other ways it doesn't bother me cause i know they just don't understand, and can't fully understand unless they've been there.
yes it is a way of saying i need help, but i never show the cuts, so no-one can know i need help. it is a very personal thing, a coping mechanism.

i used to do it a lot, and now i do it a bit still. the feeling of pain makes me feel better, it sorta takes away all the other bad stuff, but then i still just feel bad when its over, (i know this doesn't make much sense, i just cant put it into words properly) ive never really told anyone, because i find that people dont really understand, and they think you want attention or something, no one seems to be able to understand it unless they've done it.

i dont know if it is a way of saying that you need help, its different for different people. like if you tell someone about it, then thats kinda doing it to ask for help, but if you hide it completely then its more of a way of coping with the stuff you cant deal with. i do it because it helps me cope, like a way of taking my anger out on myself

i used to when i was a teen. to me it felt like i deserved it. i felt evil and sick, so this was like punishing myself. i guess for me the satisfaction came from feeling like i got what i deserved.

i never let anyone know i was doing it, so no one's ever told me anything. i guess i never doubted that it meant i needed help. i knew i did, but it would take me years before i finally got so down that i actually went to see someone. trust me, dont live with it. there is help out there, and rather than waste years of your life quietly suffering, go get some help.

try reading Healing the Hurt Within by Jan Sutton, its about self harm. I used SH a lot. I didnt do it for attention (am disgusted some answers on here and they shouldnt bother answering if they dont understand). I did it because i hated myself and wanted to punish myself. I have met a few people that do it to know they are alive.


blue eyed devil
yes i do.... it makes me feel better at the time but im so ashamed off all my scars..... if you havent got help i would advise you to get some...
sadly its peoples ignorance that stop us from seeking the help we so desperatly need and deserve. so many people THINK is for ATTENTION.... like we WANT to live with scars all over our bodies. if we wanted attention we would dye our hair bright green or something. also IF it was for attention why do we go so far to cover up what has happened. if your lucky enough to have a diffrernt coping mechinision GREAT! JUST DONT label us if you have NO IDEA what it is like to deal with it day in day out!!!!!!

have a look at my personal journey if you wish.... but i warn you it could be classed as triggering but its and insite and hope


People are so judgmental on here. Ugh. A few of the comments.... grr.

I understand how you feel completely.

I really don't want to post how it makes me feel, I'm trying to ignore my feelings at this very moment and it would depress me. But if you want to talk about it and stuff, I'm a pretty great listener. Message me on here, send me your MySpace link if you have one (make sure on here your settings allow messages and on ms, your settings allow adds without last name) - and we can talk about it. I understand it all, which is of course terrible that I've experienced it all... but at least it helps others. I'm pretty open usually. I know it sounds weird, since I don't know you or anything, but I am here to talk about ****. In a non-pitying way.
