I started cutting when I was around twelve or thirteen when I was having a lot of problems in school. I didn’t know that my behavior was self-injury I just used to like to make designs in my skin because it felt good and it looked cool. I never knew what that what I was doing could become so addictive and put me through so much pain.
As time went on my cutting became more frequent and much more deeper and wider. I don’t know why I started going deep. It just made me feel good and helped me get rid of the pain without having to do so many cuts.
My current girlfriend has been getting very worried about me lately because I have been going deep enough for stitches. I am not being told that if I don’t stop cutting she will leave me so I have to be strong and fight the urges. I guess all I can do is just live and let live.
