Why do I do it...?
I cut myself because, mainly, it gives me a sense of control over my life. But also because i slightly enjoy the pain. I hav ea problem called hyperacusis, its where your hearing is really good and you are sensitive to sounds and get annoyed bye them easily. Sometimes it gets so bad I breakdown, or get sick. The next reason is my brother. He never leaves me alone, he is always pestering me, touching me(not in a abusive way) and he just doesnt leave me alone, he is horrible to me, and my parents. When i try to get him to leave me alone, it doesnt do anything, he’s older and much bigger than me, so cutting makes me feel in control of all that. In my opinion I am pathetic…
