I am a 51 year old woman. I'm a wife

I am a 51 year old woman. I'm a wife, mother, and hold an important job. The other day I cut myself for the first time and I liked it. It took my pain away. I hid it from my husband until it healed, but I want to do it again. My question is...why now?

  • Take up masturbation.

    Like, I m********* chronically, and I've never had the desire to cut myself.

  • You need to go see a doctor. He can give you medication that will make you feel just as good as the cutting does.

  • you should really get help before you get addicted to it .i know being the woman of the house can be hard but you have to suck it up.get a new habit not this not now.

  • Find a good Therapist. They can help you in the same way with out self injuring. Think of what it would mean if your kids saw you or did it themselves.

  • Its takes the focus off the emotional pain. and it can happen to anyone... but as to your question (in a different sense) why now? only you can really answer that... could be stress, boredom, something traumatic has happened to you and you just don't know how to deal with it in a sense that society has accepted. anyway i hope you understand the damages that cutting can lead to... a little short story about me would be that the last time i cut i was in the hospital for a week... i actually should be dead right now but an angel must have saved me. Cutting is just as addicting as drugs and alcohol so please be careful.

  • Why now means why at 51 years old do I have the desire to cut myself? I thought it happened to younger people. And why does it take my pain away? I'm confused. And for the comment about PMS...get a grip. Life is more complicated than that simple answer.


  • what do you mean why now?
