I used to be a cutter, but happily, I've been cut free for I think about 5 years now.

My tool of choice used to be a safety pin, whenever I find them in hiding places I feel nostalgic. Weird of me probably.

Now I pick at my lips, but I hope that is just a bad habit and not related. If nothing else you know you're not alone!

I cut for the longest time. Haven't done it since I became pregnant with my daughter but I do have the urge sometimes. DH would absolutely kill me if I did instead of just coming to him and vent and cry and whatever I need to do. I have to say since being with DH a lot of my "issues" have greatly improved.

I cut for years... I've stopped at the moment now though. The last time I did it was just over two years ago.

You're not alone. Im 23 and I've been self harming for 9 years. I managed to stop at one point for quite a long time but recently I've started again and had to get stitches last week which was not pleasant.

Nope, definitely not alone. I am 18 now, been selfharming for six years, with a two year gap where I did really well and didn't cut or burn myself. I've also fought with an ED for ten years now.

Hello, I'd been self harming for 12 years in many different ways but mostly cutting since I was 14. I've been cut free for a year now after a failed overdose last April & a very good therapist! Been totally self harm free for 8 and a half months after meeting my OH.
Happy to say I'm stable at the moment and hoping to stay that way for the sake of my little boy. x

not the only one.
i started self harming when i was 13 and continued on and off for years. i'd say i stopped properly about 3 years ago.
i then got PND after the birth of my skin and returned to self harming. i'd say i stopped just before i got pregnant with lola.

i haven't cut since and i don't intend to
it's horrible and there needs to be SO much more awareness in my opinion!

to everyone!xx

I used to SH when I was a teenager, for about 1-2 years. I have not SH now for 10 years Although I have still got scars. Thing about that is when people see the scars they seem to think that SH is something recent for myself, which does bother me However, I think 10 years is a great milestone if I say so myself!!

to everybody, and well done to those who managed to stop!
