First of all, and most importantly, if you (or a friend) are a cutter, I advise that you seek mental treatment from your doctor, school counselor, or mental health professional (depending on your options). I've been down that route; it's very dangerous.

Secondly, cutting is a category of self-injury (a.k.a. self-inflicted violence, self-injury, self-harm, parasuicide, delicate cutting, self-abuse, and self-mutilation).
Self-injury is merely the act of attempting to modify a state of mood by inflicting physical harm serious enough to cause tissue damage to one's body.

Of the entire United States, about one percent uses self-injury as a way of coping with overwhelming feelings or situations. Those of us who cut (or self-injure, by all means) use the destructive action as a voice because we are unable to respond to these feelings

There are several forms of self-injury, as well as the severity of self-injury; we often hear of the most commonly seen behavior, such as cutting, burning, and head-banging. The other forms include: carving, scratching, branding, marking, burning, scraping (causing an abrasion), biting, hitting, and picking and pulling skin and hair.

Another thing that you should probably know is whether or not it is considered self-injury. If you are looking for sexual gratification, body decoration, spiritual enlightenment via ritual, trying to be an emo, or otherwise trying to fit in, it’s not self-injury.

Because people self-injury when they are emotionally overwhelmed, an act of self-harm will simply bring their level of psychological and physiological tension and arousal back to a bearable baseline level almost instantly.

I hope I answered some of your questions about cutting. If not, you can contact me over the SteadyHealth Network.

i cant help it. everytime i try to stop it gets worse. its like the monster that hides in our closets to get us. i cant tell my mom. and when i do do it i feel better afterwards. its not that bad. im not killing someone. why do people care? i dont want to go to a therapist. what can they do. how are they supposed to help me? i doubt many of them have been through this. i dont care how long they have worked. i dont care how many people have spilled their guts to them. they dont understand.

lostandforgotten, i went through many states of depression throughout the past few years. one of the states is about the "i don't care, i don't need help, i'm fine, leave me alone"

simply by the way you're talking, you display a standoffishness that is a characterization of depression...

please, try to realize that you can be happier than you are. help yourself.
