The last important thread I created was over what scared you. to ALL people who replied, THANK you SO much for your brave insights into fear. I will not disrespect them, You have my word. Nut this time I come with another personal issue that some of you will feel an even deeper connection few. Let me be clear, you do not even have to ident yourself as a current or former "cutter" if you wish. but just remember that it tends to hit men and women for different reasons these days. As a former cutter or "a friend" of a former cutter", tell me what they got from it. a sense of power, a sense of just being alive, in control, what? I had done it peronally for power. and to feel something. and after the pain was gone. then I felt well....in balance. I have since quite this with few relapses...talking helped thought it was mostly critical writing or taking logically to myself but I GOT OVER IT. Please, if you feel comfortable talking about it, share as much as you comfortably can. It does me a large favor of and many even help someone else totally. Think you for your time.
