    Stops me killing myself. :dontknow:

    Has worked pretty well so far. Gotta do something about stuff, slicing myself open is probably marginally better than hanging myself.
    Aye, this too.

    It gives us normal people something to laugh at...
    A class, *******. ^

    For me it's weird, I always used to be perplexed as to why someone could do it to themselves, but the past years been hard, and I started doing it a few months ago, usually when I've had a bad day or argued with my parents, like someone else said, it just feels like pressure builds up, and this is how I vent it :/

    MAY BE TRIGGERING. To quench my thirst to see my blood pour out of my body. I spent all day chanting to myself: die, die, die! It stopped me killing myself basically. If I didn't I would have got home one day and slashed my throat until I was drowning in my own blood.

    Reason for edit: Typing error.

    Adding on to my earlier post, i think there was also an element of being desperate for someone to notice and confront me about it. Whilst i was doing it i was thinking "someone will see tomorrow and help me". So i guess in some ways it was attention seeking.

    Having said that, the most important thing to me at the time was making sure that nobody ever found out. I would have rather died than let anyone know what was happening. Silly isn't it?

    The sting of razors edge,
    The rush of all that blood,
    Self-control over the dread
    I thought maybe I could:
    Find a high to numb the low,
    A release of all the pain,
    Self-punished scars to show,
    I could still feel...someway
    Brilliant but triggering
