hi.. im 43 years old.. and have been cutting and self injuring since i was 13.. there are many reasons why i cut and self injure.. the biggest one is because i dont know how to externalize my feelings.. so they all stay inside and build up.. so there is a little bit about me and what i go through on a daily basis..  thanks for listening

My name is Meg and I'm doing a study on female former self-injurers for my undergraduate thesis. I was a self-injurer myself for two years, and i've been in recovery for five.

If you are a female former self-injurer, i'd really appreciate it if you'd take a few minutes and fill out my survey.

There is more information about the project and the survey here.

If you know anyone else who might be interested in participating please let them know! Thanks!

My name is Shannon, and I've been cutting for two years. I have scars all over my arms and legs, so I'm constantly wearing long-sleeves and pants. Very few people know that I cut, and the people that know have either accidentally seen my scars, I trusted them enough, or I was drunk and we were talking for hours and it came up.

I am working on a paper that my teachers say they can use as extra credit for me, but I'm using it as a sort of closure... we were asked to write a paper on an aspect of depression, and i wrote about something very close to me and close to all of you: self-injury. She's allowing me to expand on it,creating a large paper that profiles other self-injurers.

It would mean a lot to me if any of you wanted to help me out. I've created a survey (some questions were lifted from secret shame, because I thought they were amazingly well-put) and it's for people who SI currently or not, and for people who have never SIed. There's also an example of what I do with many responses, it's an anonymous profile.

Every person will receieve their own page (or a few) and every story will never, ever be put down... my idea is to show people that this is certainly real, that it should not be something to be ashamed of, and that you are all very much real people.

Please email your responses to me if you choose to fill this out (nyqwal@aol.com). It has been x-posed to other SI communities, so if you see this more than once, I'm sorry for clogging up your friends pages. Thank you to anyone who chooses to fill this out, so much. the surveyCollapse )

Yesterday didn't seem like that bad of a day. Nothing really happened to make me upset in any way, but for some reason i felt the need to cut before i went to bed. So i was experimenting with a razor ( i always use a knife or scissors or something ) but anyways, it cut a lot worse than i usually get, well more blood anyway, but i wasn't satisfied with one, so i did it like 6 times, and have already done it 4 more times today. I don't know why i keep doing it, usually one or two are good enough for me...

last night was the first time i cut in months. in about 2 months. I got so angry because all i had was a piece of shit blade, so it was like cat scratches. my skin didn't split. my blood didn't drip...God, you can really tell you're a failure when you can't even bleed right...I hope everyone else is doing much better than me...Why won't I bleed out?

[ mood | sad ]

So, I haven't cut or scratched, whatever you call it...in a couple of weeks, I don't keep track because then it would be on my mind all the time....but the random bouts of sadness will never stop and my Ana thoughts/tendencies are back strong....And right now I'm depressed about going back to school tomorrow

i think this is a really tight community. i dunno. i joined it because i'm on a different username than my real one- and on this i'm hoping to be more like myself or whatever...

um- i guess my tribute to this community and why i joined it will be this:
i've never actually done anything to harm myself- and i doubt i ever will. i'm too scared of the consequences. but i suppose i mentally self injur myself more than is healthy. i'm depressed... i slip in and out of it. i kindof wish i wasn't like this- but in all honesty i sortof like feeling this way. i look at the world differently and i observe and analyze people with such precision. i feel i'm a better person when i'm sad - because i'm more observant-therefore considerate...careful...helpful...

there are times, though- as i'm sure every person has- where i wish it weren't like this.
like i'm not meant to go through such crap.
it's unfair.
it's hard.

but that's life. life sucks- then you die

...so here i am... i hope i can contribute more to this community

This is what happens when you wanna cut and someone suggests that you color to get your mind off it...too bad the internet is a horrible place to find coloring pages!! (I'd like to send a shout-out to Crayola.com for this love-a-ly picture!)

Help me name him!Collapse )

sometimes its easier to give in to a dull urge that's been torturing you for 4 days than to fight it..
