I'm 14 and i have cut myslef for a while, about 2 years. It started because my dad and mom were always fighting and i always thought it was my fault and they are now separated. In December he hit me and we had to call the police and it all went down hill from there. He doesn't pay child suport and my mom is always working and i see her trying to support us but it's hard i'm the middle child. I have a 22 year old brother and a 6 year old brother. My friends do it, we are trying to help each other stop. I threw everything away that reminded me of cutting myself but it didn't help i got into a fight with my mom and so i cut myself again with a knife. I'm going to counseling but i fear that they might tell my mom. I have a boyfriend and there are rumors going around school and it's making our relationship go down hill but we have resolved it and i guess the reason i do it is b/c of my family wanting me to be a 'A' 'B' student and it's hard to do tht. Well if u have any advice please e-mail me. I need all the help i can get.
The alternative to cutting is to accept your uncomfortable feelings. Cutting makes you feel better for a short while in a similar way as drugs.
But cutting is a bad solution. It does not solve your problems, just evades them temporarily. The right thing to do is stop cutting, experience your feelings, however upsetting they are, and try to find longer lasting solutions to the problems in your life.
