  • Just curious

    Has anyone else experienced people that use their belief in God or whatever other higher power as their crutch for hurting you? In other words, not taking responsibility for their actions but rather allowing their God’s capability of forgiveness as an excuse to hurt anyone in anyway possible.

  • Rant

    Maybe all along I was the one at fault.  Maybe all the blame I’ve placed on others was really no one elses but my own.  Maybe I was the dealer of this horrible hand.

  • Scar treatment

    Has anyone heard of or know anything about a tattoo scar treatment?  A few months back I watched a show about a Dr. that used the same concept of tattoos to cover up scars.  They matched the color of the ink to the color of your skin.  If anyone knows of someone that has had…

  • Holy cow!

    I just read Cookie crumbs post and it dawned on me just how long it has been since I injured as well.  I can’t lie, I’ve had the intent to but thankfully never followed through.  It’s all kind of odd because I’ve thought about it and usually will go about my day planning events around…

  • I’m going into this post with no real goal in mind

    For about the last 5 years I’ve had numerous doctors tell me my body is medication and treatment resistant. This round about diagnosis has really been a bite in the butt here of late.  I’m still mad that alternative methods along with the medications and any other formal forms of therapy have all proven to…

  • It’s all uphill from here

    I’ve been told for years, about 15 to be exact that staying positive is the key because life can’t get any worse than what it already is.  The last couple of months have really proven that theory wrong.  I know it’s everyones way of trying to keep my spirits up, but anymore I just consider…

  • Insomnia

    I injured myself last night.  I really don’t feel any different now.  It’s been a pain hiding from my family, but even if they do ask I won’t really care.  I do wish my life would change somehow.  I wish I could find a job and move out of this house that has done so much permanent…

  • Random question

    I know this probably sounds completely insane, but has anyone else ever felt guilty for not injuring?  I know people usually feel great when they don’t hurt themselves- and they should.  But for some reason I feel lousy for not.  It’s almost like I’m not fulfilling an obligation or something.  I don’t know.  It’s really…

  • Has anyone here ever had problems with 1-800-273-TALK?  Does anyone know if they are associated with 1-800-SUICIDE?  ….lame post, but I’d really appreciate responses

  • Seriously.

    I can’t think of an eye-appealing way to start off what it is that I need to say, so here goes nothing. O.k.  I guess I really want to do everything in my power to tell all of the younger generation that you have to stop.  You seriously have to stop.  Self injury will never…
