Too Old To Cut?

I'm 20 years old. I started cutting when I was 15 or 16 and I stopped cutting after my life picked up a little and got in a relationship, about 17. I have recently been under a lot of stress. Supposed to be getting married in a year with no way to pay for it, having so much trouble saving. My fiance tries but he works but never has money, I pay for everything with a minimum wage job. I started cutting again, releases some of the tension but I wear a crocheted bracelet to hide my scars and cuts. If I get angry, upset or frustrated without my box cutter around I dig into my arm with my nails. There is a stigma attached to cutting is that it's a teenager thing. Nobody knows...nobody

  • I am 24 and I still cut from time to time.....I do not think that anyone has a right to judge you for cutting. I think that it is something you have to work out and the first step is opening up to people about why you cut and what triggers it. Good luck :)
