I felt something, definitely. But I stopped 5 years ago, it's totally behind me. It didn't make me want to start again or anything like that at all.
thats wierd u say that, whenever i read something about cutting or people talk about i.e (my psychology lessons) then i feel a kind of urge to start again and i dont know y! anyone know?

I never did. That was the time i wasn't doing it really anymore, and i certainly didn't want to start.

Right now though i... i don't know. I don't feel like self harming in the way people would think of it, but... its unsurprisingly complicated (and i'm talking more than hitting my head alot, which i do, but thats through boredom and the fact my brain doesn't work).

Before i 'came out' as it were i hated people talking about it. I still do really, but now most of my close friends know so they tend to avoid it. My parents are both teachers and my sister took a gap year last year and worked as a TA and most of her kids were fairly screwed one way or another. She went off on one one night when she first started working with them about how she couldn't understand what would drive someone to it and how awful all their problems must be. She also said she couldn't understand why they felt as though they couldn't talk to their families. I was just sat there listening to her and Dad thinkng... "neither of you know. You're sat there talking like it's something out of the ghetto and i;ve been doing this right under your noses for years..."
Just made me really sad

My mum was just absolutely terrified. She was shaking. It was worse the second time 'round when i admitted that i'd started again . I'd done it a few times in between but always managed to get it under control again... and then around June / July i really went for it hook line + sinker again. She just cried and cried and cried and was so scared of losing me. It was horrible

The worst thing is when they start blaming themselves for you starting again. That really sucks, especially if its not their fault at all. I have had that one. Grrr.

I would've given myself about a week before I get so upset about being alone that I try it to see what the fuss is about, and why it worked for her. It seems I've done virtually everything she'd normally do to try to remind myself of her, I guess it's just a natural progression. But I'm still a tracophobe, so I'll pass out before I can.

Mmmm best thing for lack of scarring - biting
The only thing i've learnt from talking to "the pros" are ways of doing it that don't actually harm you (other than the odd psycho bit) or leave scars. I'd rather have a bite mark for a few days that looks like eczema (sp?) than a cut But yeah the other two they told me to do were biting a really sour lemon (eww - so didn't make me feel better!) and a cup of nearly boiling water over the shoulder - ouch - provided you have access to boiling water!!!

You would need ot be careful with the water. If it was boiling then it could scald you, and that does leave nasty scars.

Thats seriously fcuked up.
In that case, that makes me fcuked up. It makes a hell of a lot of people I know fcuked up.

How pathetic is it that some people don't even try to understand? Cos it is.

I scratch, and the marks usually fade after a few hours... but I don't trust myself around knives... part of the ocd.
