Before you self harm in any way, you should probably know what you're getting into.
Before you make that cut, please keep in mind that you will find the pain release, and blood, strangely addictive.
You may think to yourself that you'll be able to control it, that you won't let it get out of hand. You may think that you can just stick to a few small, shallow cuts here and there that won't be deep and that will heal quickly and easily.
But you're wrong. You can't control it, it's impossible to control. It controls you. It's an addiction. The cuts will get deeper, they'll scar. They'll take weeks to months to heal and years for the scars to actually begin to fade.
You'll find that soon, you depend on it. You can't go more than a few days without cutting. You'll go crazy as your skin itches and burns, your hands shake, your head pounds, your vision goes blurry as you try to keep your mind off of it, try to hold back from giving in. But you will.
If you think you can limit the cuts to just one area of your body, you better think again. It'll spread slowly but steadily, like a deadly virus. It'll spread as you run out of skin, from your wrists to arms, past your elbows, up your shoulders down to your stomach, across your hips and waist and soon will cover your every inch of your legs right down to your ankles. You'll find yourself jerking back from the touch of someone, as if their fingers and hands have been bathed in a toxic, burning poison. You'll be terrified that they will feel a scar or cut from beneath the fabric of your shirt or because it just plain hurts so much to simply be touched. So put down what you're about to use Because you are so much better than this. And believe me, you don't want to get involved with the monster of self harm, it's not worth it. Even tho i'm a sekf-harm addict ...i beg u guys to stop cutting..
