    [male, age 32, began to SI at age 28, Security]


    • My girlfriend was very upset and threatened to start cutting herself if I didn’t stop it. I gave her the knife and invited her to do it if she was serious. She didn’t cut herself. She then understood that it was not something that I had started doing for the sheer hell of it, I was doing it because I was unwell. I was so unwell when I told my relatives that I can’t remember their reactions.

    My sister looked shocked, so I grinned and told her I was kidding. I felt like I was pressing the backspace button, but I didn’t want her to freak out. When I told her and said I was serious, she sympathized, and–Thank goodness–didn’t freak out.

    My friend, who I already knew cut herself, reacted with a hug, and that was that.

    My parents however… oh god… My mom said I was PMSing, and my dad yelled at me. They haven’t mentioned it since. I tried telling them again, and this time they took me seriously… for one day. I expressed the want to get help, and the next day Dad comes home with some bullshit about how I don’t sleep enough.

    I told my best friend and i really wish i hadnt. she treats me like a porcelain doll that could smash at any moment. its horrible. she wont tell me anything thats going on in her life, in case it “pushes me over the edge” or something. she is constantly checking my arms and stuff and if im ever upset she always goes “ok… just dont do anything stupid.” Stupid! she had no idea!

    Same here.
    my mom recently saw new cuts after thinking i was “no longer crazy” just because she said so a year ago. She flipped. and now everytime i’m angry or annoyed she brings it up. She will say then why don’t you just go cut yourself? or Is this because of all that scratching shit? I wish she understood. But I can’t talk to her about it. And oneday i was about to overheat so my teacher told me to take my jacket off and put my head down and a few people saw the cuts. Every single one of them that day asked me the same question, ” Its because of your bitchy sister isn’t?”. Now everyone treats me like if they bring my twin sister up or say the wrong thing i will just pull out a blade right then and there. I wish nobody knew, and people are scared to bring their own problems up to me anymore. And i heard the funniest thingg today, A friend of mine said “If i find out your cutting again, I’ll hit you.” I was like oh that makes me feel great?? ha

    a girl i knew saw my cuts that i made into my thighs with a pencil sharpener blade. i usually cut phrases into my legs as they make the most sense to me. she just looked at me as if i was crazy and when my foster carers found out they tried to kick me out the house but i was too young for that. everynow and again theyll check my arms but they dont know that its high up on my thighs.
