My name is Michaela. I am eighteen and have been cutting for four years now. I have read the personal stories in here and I quite agree, cutting isn’t a bad thing, it is a way we can release our emotions and be happy if only for a few minutes.
I hate my life and everything about it. I don’t trust anyone and I’ve already tried to kill myself once. What’s to stop me doing it again? What kind of a life is this? I want to be normal, yet I know I never will. I am branded fucked up and psychotic which is fair but not the point. If only people would understand that cutting isn’t a bad thing, it’s our way of life and a way to live.
