    [female, age 14, began to SI at age 11, High School student]

    • Deep down, I really don’t want to stop. I am so addicted, that carrying out hurting myself is no longer a grueling ordeal. It’s a guilty pleasure. I have forgotten any other way to cope during big problems, so I have turned to self-injurey. I find myself angry at my parents for making me stop, when “its my own life.” I wish that I could just be seperated from my parents so i don’t have to feel so guilty after harming myself. Right now, no. I don’t feel any drive to stop hurting myself.

    You need to stop though! You may not realize it now but in the long run it will be a huge benefit to you. Your parents want you to stop because they love you and care about you. They don’t want to see you hurt physically or emotionally. I can totally relate to you. I, too, was very angry with my parents when they tried to make me stop. Everyday I had to show them my arm or I would be grounded. I didn’t have a relationship with my parents. I hated it at home to the point where I ran away. Now, I guess you can say my parents and I kinda have a relationship. I’m still taking baby steps, I haven’t gotten to the point of telling them personal information yet. I felt the same as you. I didn’t want to stop but I had to. I wanted to stop but I couldn’t . Now I can say I’m happy that its been about a month and two weeks since the last time I cut myself. I know you can do it! Please talk to someone you trust. You can email me anytime if you want. My email is janellebrennanatca.rr.com . But don’t stop until you are absolutely ready and you have plans on what to do when the urges come. I say this because several months ago I told myself I wouldn’t cut till the rest of the year or something. I ended up cutting and being more depressed because I was so ashamed of myself and so mad. I know you can do it!!!
