Is scratching yourself like cutting yourself, but less painful? I'm depressed but haven't told my parents, just my two friends. I scratch my stomach with pointy things or with corners and such. Any help suggestions?

  • your not stupid honey. you arent a poser either. some people have a big head and they think there knowledge is gods gift to others. you ignore that s***! yes, scratching indeed is just as bad.its a form of self mutilation just not as bad but its still the intent to hurt yourself. pulling out locks of hair, wrist banging, cutting, scratching. all that that and more. i think you need to figure out why you do it and how you can stop. i was really bad cutter for years .i even stabbed myself in the arm bc i went nuts but i stopped and i now stare at these gashes and wonder if my husband is ashamed to love a cutter. just some advice

  • How about taking up gardening? You'll scratch the crap out of your arms, focus on positive energy, and generally make the place nicer and pretty.

    Are you really this depressed, and how does it help? Seeking attention, but then ashamed later. There are better ways. Get that attention by excelling in something.

    This comment is for ALL stupid cutters and posers.

  • Wow, do not listen to this guy. Cutting is NOT about seeking attention, I am a cutter and I'm VERY self-concious about my cuts and scars, I hide them, and almost all Self-harmers do. We are not stupid or posers, we are dealing with stress and emotions in our own way, unhealthy way but still.

  • ^I thought this dumbass was gone for good, Looks like he's still gonna be making his own posts to comment about. Stupid piece of s***.
