    [female, age 19, began to SI at age 15]

    • Before, there’s so much built up frustration. There’s the internal battle of “God, please don’t let me cut myself” and “You know you’ll feel better when you do.” Once I’ve given in, I’m just focused on what I’m doing. Afterwards is when I become dissociated. I clean the wounds up and bandage them carefully, but all the while feel ‘outside’ of myself.

    Before, I’m either unexplainably angry, depressed, or I’m extremely ancious for no reason. The anxious feeling is the worst because it comes on out of no where and it I feel like I’m going to explode if I don’t do something to make it go away. Cutting and sleep are the only two things that make that feeling stop. During, I’m numb. I’m thinking things like “don’t go too far here” and “over here it’s too noticeable, try over here instead”. After, if it’s something small I can usually just look past it and feel calm, pretty much just forget it happened because I got the release I wanted. If it’s something big though, I sometimes feel sick having to clean up afterwards. The blood will seep through things and get my fingers and all around where i cut wet. It freaks me out when there’s large ammounts of blood running down my hips/wrists but I just calmly watch it and then clean it off. It sometimes makes me feel sick though, to know that I did that to myself. It’s a love hate relationship for sure.
