I am a poet and an author and have been using Self Injury for five years and I can’t seem to stop. I’ve tried nearly everything that I can think of and it just seems like it won’t go away.  I feel as if I have become some kind of monster.  At school or at my workplace I can feel people staring, as if they’re burning holes in my mind trying to uncover something that they should not know. I have let down so many people and I have been thinking for a very long time now that things would be better off if I did not waste others time and get their hopes up only to disappoint them in the long run.
