No words can explain
Before I self injure, I feel like numb in a way, but at the same time so depressed that I can’t feel. My life goes on and flys by around me, but i can’t take nocitce. I’m stuck in my own world. I usually like to cut with extremly sharp things. During the time i self injure…it’s just me, in closed room with my blades to comfort me. I watch the blood shine through those neatly cut lines and I feel relief. After I self injure is when I feel the pain, the stinging keeps me up all night, but as weird as it sounds, I like that feeling. i feel shaky and usually the next day I can feel my cuts break open and bleed. it’s all about control.
