I started self harming about 2 years ago. It was the only way that I could find that I could release the pain that I was feeling inside me (even though it was only for a short period of time). I’ve never had a problem with my self harming. Some people drink, some people have sex, some people take drugs; when I’m angry, I cut myself. About 7 weeks ago things got too much and my self harming wasn’t enough to help me cope and I took an overdose. Since then I’ve had to see a psyciatrist and had to deal with my parents not being able to cope. Self harming is not something I want to stop even though I know it hurts the people around me as well of myself. It’s part of who I am. I love all my friends and family but if I don’t wan’t to change then they have to learn that they can’t pressure me into changing.
