    Therefore it is said that 50% of cutters aren't sexually abused/molested.

    I was at a party last night and one of my friends boyfriend decided to cut himself with pieces of broken glass from a beer bottle. He's a very anti-social kid and my group was trying to include him in with what we were doing but he just rolled his eyes and paced back and forth like he wanted to kill us all. I was kind of uneasy with the way he was acting. Then my group found him cutting his arms and his wrists with the glass from the beer bottle behind the house where we all were.

    To make a long story short, one of my friends took him home. I would've gotten him some help or something, but the situation was out of my hands.

    I know he was abused by his father growing up and he doesn't like to associate with people. I thought my group was doing a good thing in trying to include him in things, but I guess not. I hope he's alright because he surely scared me and everybody else.

    Once I cut myself,when I was angry.
    Now I just put Linkin Park on full blast,and hit something. I always have the urge to break plates and glasses and such. And scream.

    Concerning suicide,I've thought of it,once or twice,when I was depressed. But ...I would still never try it. You live only once. Cheesy,yes,but true.

    Suicide is very much so a serious topic. It's not a good thing, and I hope that some people will understand that. People can get very dramatic. Real hearts have felt the impact of suicide. They did not live to tell. Souls were scarred, and they never forgot the loved ones who died because of this monster, it's name Suicide. Please hear me out.

    I understand you, too bad you're banned.

    Andrea, that is really saddening. I have friends who cut themselves who are extremely social, which surprises me.

    i think suicide is something that everyone has thought about at some point in life. yes i have thought about it, when i get really depressed i think about it alot, but it is something i have never considered doing only for the fact that my friends mean too much to me and ide never want to put them through that. being depressed is something that i think comes with the teenage years, everyones hormones are all over the place that the little problems seem so much bigger and difficult to handle. i kno that for some people this isnt true and that things are as big as they seem and that depression is a serious issue, but unfortunatly, for the people that need professional help just dont have the resources nor the funding to help this issue and to teach doctors that suicide is a huge issue these days and its not just 'teenagers being stupid', i kno thats what my mum would say to me if i ever tried killing my self, shed tell me to 'stop being stupid'.

    anyways thats my thoughts on this issue and that someone finds this usefull in someway.

    What time in your life did you try to kill yourself?

    EDIT: Oh shoot! Double-post. My bad.

    i would say i was about 8 or 9 when i first held a razer blade to my wrist. i came so close to using it but instead i bit down so hard on my tounge that it started bleeding. i thought about it on and of for years after that. then when i was twenty i took an overdose of sleeping tabs and ended up in hospital. instead of diagosing me with depression, i got a slap on the wrist and told i was a stupid girl and got sent home.
    a year ago, i started feeling the same again so i marched to my doctors
    and told her (i was lucky to get a sympathetic woman GP) how i was feeling and what had happened to me before. i got treatment straight away. it was medication which i am not keen on takeing but i knew it was for the best. i was only on the tabs for 3-4 months and i feel great now.

    thats why i believe that asking for the right kind of help and not giving up is so important. i believe it saved my life.

    Wow, 8 or 9? I started feeling the same around that age as well.

    I can understand that getting help is probably the best thing to do, but I'm completely against the whole, "Go to the doctor, get perscribed pills" idea.

    I'm glad that you feel better now.

    I think i was like 10 when i started harming myself. I just looked at a thread I made nearly a year ago now about stuff.. meh I'm so glad things are better now. I still cut sometimes a little now and again for different events that my mother creates but no way as bad as I used to because as I said, things are way better.

    Well, that's good. If you're not cutting as much as you used to, it's improvement.

    thanks, i still have my bad moments but i have learnt to deal with things better. and yes, i don't really agree with being prescribed pills that young. i mean i was 20 when i finally took precribed medicine but i think there is help out there for those younger. i think prescribtions are useful for some extreme cases but there are other ways of dealing with the problem.

    i think CBT (cognitive behavioural theapy) is a very useful type of therapy cause it is a very client centered approach and the therapists role is minimal. you are taught ways of dealing with situations on your own without the use of drugs. personally, i would have much prefered that treatment than pills but the nhs is britian is basically shove pills down you and you will be fine. doesn't work for everyone.

    Yeah, I have a friend who went to the doctor one day (she lives in England), and she was told that she was depressed and was immediately perscribed pills.

    You know, being a tad suicaidal isn't something I tell people. My mom's brother was on drugs when he was a teenager and now he is on permenant disability for depression. If I told my parents, I would be in couseling faster than I could pack my bags. My friends don't get it, either. One thought I was crazy after I told her and has treated me differently since. I was so close to it a few months ago. I felt as if nobody wanted me. My parents were yelling at me, my friend's lives were going great, and I was left to deal with it by myself. And that's how I did deal with it. I had no meds, no counseling, no nothing. It was all in my head. I'm better now, though.

    I respect that. There was a time where I was depressed and my friends didn't talk to me. They refer back to it. They said I was a completely different person. I'm still sort of the same but I try not to let it show in front of my friends. There was this one guy I met in Elementary school who went to a different middle school, and we saw each other again and talked. I told him about how I am now...the whole depression issue and he thinks I'm sort of different, but it's all cool. I had the same trouble as you did. I'm still going through it though.
