  • ahh

    so, i posted a couple days ago when i had a relapse after 7 months of not s.i. i thought that was just a minor slip up and i was done. but today i did it again. i really don’t know what to do. i don’t want to do this, but i can’t not. its…

  • hello

    hey. sooo, i used to visit this site a lot back in november through february. in february, i finally stopped SI for good. or at least, i thought so. now, im not going to make this into some big, huge, dramatic saga about my “depressing” life because frankly, im not depressed. i was definitely depressed…

  • just some encouragement

    hello to all, I am proud to announce that I have not injured since the middle of February. It used to be at least twice a week. Every time I get the urge to injure I just ask myself, “Do you really want ANOTHER nasty scar on your body that will prevent you from going swimming this…

  • Scars

    Does any know what is the best way to reduce the appearance of scars? I have several raised scars.  I desperately need to get rid of them. I am trying to erase my whole injuring phase and move on. I really cannot have these scars any longer. Please, someone help me! It’s getting to be…

  • i’m pretty sure

    the only reason I haven’t been injuring is because I know it is going to be summer. I’m afraid that once winter rolls around again I will start back up. How do I ensure myself that I’m done forever?

  • It’s sure amazing

    how fast things change. Yesterday I was writing a post about how I gathered up enough courage to stop injuring. Today, I feel completely different. It’s all I want to do. Well, I was okay before I looked at my grades and saw that one went down a whole grade. Great, just great. I was…

  • to add to the post below..

    Many people will tell you to tell someone, especially your parents so that they can help you. Many of you may disagree with me, I don’t suggest that you do this. Once again, it is the whole control factor. Injuring is a personal issue. It is a result from internal problems. If you tell your parents…

  • finally stopping; this may be help you

    After about two years of self injury, I think I may finally be stopping.  Injuring had become progressively worse for me during the months of September through January. I began to think that this disease would never go away and I had pretty much lost all hope of stopping. But then something happened. I’m not quite…

  • sooo

    I haven’t injured for a couple weeks, which is kind of a long time for me. I have felt the urge to, but nothing seemed to upset me enough to actually do it. I’m not sure if my so-called “depression” is getting better or just if nothing has upset me enough. Not injuring is making me want…

  • how can i stop?

    I’ve been self mutilating since around7th or 8th grade. I am now a sophomore in high school. I have absolutely nothing wrong with my life.  I have friends and a great family. I get good grades, take piano lessons, and I am in speech and debate. This is why I don’t understand why I injure….
