Hi, I’ve been reading through peoples posts and guess I’m not the only one that is new at this. I don’t really know where to start. The main thing I wanted to ask was whether the urge to self harm ever really goes away. But by reading some comments I guess it doesn’t. I’m 22, I started self harming I guess when I was about 13. I haven’t done it since 2002/2003, but I never really stopped for me. I guess I stopped so I didn’t have to explain the scars or the marks. I just didn’t want to draw attention to myself, or have others blame themselves for what I was doing.
I think I really just had to admit to someone – someone who I’m never going to know. That I still want to injure. I never will again. But I just think I’ll feel better admitting that I occasionally want to.
Also, I feel kind of guilty for doing this to myself seeing as I have a pretty good life. I’ve got a great family, no major complaints anywhere. So for all of you out there who have crappy things at some stage in your lives, I’m sorry for doing this to myself when my life has been pretty good.
