my name is jennifer, and i am 13 years old. i just started to cut myself on the arms last month. i started because my boyfriend, kyle, who i loved dearly broke up with me, i found out by my parents that i was an "accident" and they didnt mean to have me, and my friends have been acting like they hate me. i have been depressed and gotten better, but know the feeling of depression has come to me again. i have turned to cutting for my stress relief, and when i do cut myself, i feel as if all of my anger and pain are draining out of me along with the blood. right now, i would say that i have at least 15 cuts that are fresh. i cut after school, before bed, sometimes even during school in the bathroom. my mom threw away my razor, so i use a needle. dont worry though, i sterilize every thing before i cut. i decided that i do have an addiction, but i cant stop, and i probably wont anytime soon. please, if you have any advice for me, i would greatly appreciate it if you would share it. please e mail me soon.

sincerely,
jennifer

Many children are "accidents" and were not planned, but the parents love them anyway, when they are born.

As you say, you can be addicted to cutting. The alternative to cutting is to feel your feelings. If you cannot stop cutting on your own, you need professional help. Prozac can help, together with psychotherapy. Hospitalization can be a solution, if nothing else helps.

More about self-harm.
