Help Me Frank by lucifera-demonessa Help Me Frank by lucifera-demonessa
I'm posting this because this is a reminder of the person i once was and never again will be. I use to do this years ago and I was doing alright. keeping clean till a few months ago when i had a terrible melt down. I'm working and improving, I'm working with others, digging into the roots to trying to figure out why i did what i did. I didn't post this for anyone else but for myself. If you have something to say that is negative and offensive, then keep it to yourself. If you have something to say otherwise then comment. I honestly believe i did this so i would ignore my emotions and thoughts and focus on something external rather than internal. This isn't a cry for help either. This is for myself to reflect on the person i one was and the person i'm trying to distance myself away from.

:hug: I'm glad you're ok now. I know we don't know each other, but I wanted to tell you that I respect your willingness to keep this up, because I know how scary it can be to have pictures of self-harm on the 'net. stay strong, girl!

This is a very emotional pic...I don't cut myself and I hope I never do. My friends joke about cutting them selves and its not funny to me because its an addiction and its not cool or even close to being funny. Great job on being free. keep it up. Great post. love it. :)

I still cut myself
Is it a bad thing to be twelve and doing this
I mean my parents and siblings and basically blind cause my arm is torn up
It right there in their face
My mom is always trying to make me get counseling
But for what it only makes it worst when they try to relate to you

I agree. i have been dealing with this addiction for 8 years now. for the last 2 years i haven't done it. i got help. but th urges are still there. they always will be. When i get a urge i keep doing something with art or my fake blood and latex. i have enough scars all over my body from it. i thank you for putting this up.

i've only cut twice in three months...my best record so far...before, my arms were as bad as yours in this pic...all the way up...it really is an addiction...and impossible to overcome...my boyfriend knows...and he made me a deal...if i stop cutting, he'll stop drinking (though his drinking is maybe one shot every few months, if that...but he knows how much i hate it) and i've been trying to keep my promise...but it's so hard...

when you feel the urge to cut hun, do something else like writing, screaming something keep doing it until the urge/feeling is gone. or hell get a red marker take that to whatever area that you would cut. it helps.

it really does help having someone there to keep you from doing it.. i have a really good friend, he told me something similar, he didnt like it when i hurt myself and i hated it when he did what he used to do, we told each other we'd try to stop doing what we were doing to hurt ourselves, not because for the other person but for ourselves.

I've been free from it ever since my boyfriend found out. That was about 4 months ago. He randomly checks my wrists ALL THE TIME to make sure I don't start it again. I thank him and my friends help me stop cutting.

i used to cut myself pretty massivley. but i got my GF and now she aided me through it. if it werent for my army of friends behind me i would still be the same.but I would be dead now if i dared not learn how to stich wounds from my cousins. otherwise i would have bleed out wich i am going to post a picture i drew back then. but now i have moved on. thank you my friends for getting me through it. i would be dead. and i advise ANYONE reading this comment. as he says here. Dont get the addiction i had. the scars are horrible if they arent done correctly or u do like i didnt and boiled the scars with Hydrogen peroxide (DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS)... i have, H*** carved into myself. and i will regret it... forever. So please dont get yourself addicted....

I wont support anyone who does it. I went through it to and it was fucking STUPID. Anyone who cuts, needs help, just like an alcoholic...not just a friend. Unless they do it for some sexual thrill, that's their thing lol

wow this picture really touches me I've been in and out of "care" facilities for my cutting addiction for a total of about a month and a half now and they were considering sending me to an intensive care facility. but after taking a good long look at my life ive been able to stop i haven't cut in about a mth now thanks to the constant reminders of my mistakes the scars covering my uppers arms and shoulders. but what i would like to point out is that guys suffer from this addiction to many people think its only girls who do it and the guys who do it are overly emotional pussies but i stand here and proudly admit to my mistakes and will defend anyone who suffers from this addiction so anyone that reads this if you know anyone who cuts please reach out you might be the difference between life and death Geoff,
