    • I wasn't planning on telling anyone I know, only people on the self help chats that are there to listen. I don't want to feel like a bother. But I was talking to this guy I've only talked online to and who's sweet. He thought I was ignoring him when i was really dealing with my demons. I told him, and he told me not to do it, but i can't just stop. I think it's like an addiction after the first time you do it. He told me he wants to help in anyway and that I shouldn't be lonely because I have him. But now I feel like he's being so nice to me because of what I told him.

      I want to tell my mom, but I don't want to worry her. i don't want her to check on me 24/7 just because she thinks I'll kill myself. i can't put that burden on her. I'm 19, almost 20, for god's sake. I'm an adult and should deal with this as such, but sometimes I feel I can't do it alone.

    Hi I know exactly how you feel, reading that message I see how much we're alike. I'm 17 and I've told my best friend and he told me to talk to him whenever I feel the urge, but I don't think he realizes how often I feel the urge so I only talk to him about it every month or so. Also, whenever I seem depressed my mom won't let me leave her side until I fake a smile, so I can't imagine what she would say about my cutting. Truth is people who don't cut can't understand what cutters go through. If you want to talk, I'm here to listen.
