I'm totally shocked by the number of people who find it neccessary to critisize and make fun of cutters. Cutting is a seriuos issue and is no more worty of being made fun of than any other illnesses (down syndrome, diabetes, mental retardation). Cutting is often a sign of bigger issues that need immediate attention, such as depression, anxiety, dissociative disorders, ect. The strange thing about human psychology is that there are no set rules. Everyone is different and expresses themselves in their own way. You don't have to have the worste past in the world to be depressed. Depression is a chemical disorder in your brain that can be passed down geneticly. Just because your parents are rich or not divorced doesn't mean that you cannot have depression. In my experiances depression is triggered by life events that overwhelm the affected person. A death in the family may not bother some as much as it does others. There is no chart to say how sad you should be for each of lifes events, and no way of avoiding your genetic past. Also, the sterotype of mostly girls commiting SI is obsurd. Males are just as likely to SI as females. Maybe they dont seek help like females or do it in different ways (punching walls, knowingly doing dangerous things, ect.).

Athough I will admit that in the large numbers of people in the world it has to be true that some peope cut just for attention. These people can usually be uncovered by listening to them talk. Most cutters tell only the people closest to them (spouse, close friend ect.). Attention seekers would have to let almost everyone they know about thier actions in order to recieve the attention desired. Althought I'm sure there are people who are just tired of hiding thier actions, and decide that they don't care who finds out and judges them, but that doesn't mean they will advertise their affliction. It would become increasing difficult to hide the longer you cut since you will eventually run out of space on your commonly covered skin.
I had the perfect childhood, parents were supportive and married, but am still somehow unexplainably sad, bitter and my glass is half empty. Being a cutter helps releive my stress and anger.
V.S.
My mom left when I was 3 and my dad beat me, but I adapted and overcame those obsitcles and am now a stronger person. I would never imagine harming myself.

A person who cuts them self with razorblades or knives (or any sharp object) to feel "relief" from day to day pressures, relationship problems, or troubles with parents. Usually blamed on a parent or mental health issue, but is almost always learned from a close or older friend, who the cutter looks up to This gives them a bond, or a common problem that they can use as way of relating to each other. (The cutter will never admit to this for fear that a parent or loved one will tell them not to hang out with that person anymore).
The cuts usually start out as scratches but can escalate to deep lacerations, the deeper cuts and scars represent how "hardcore" the person is and how severe their problems are. These same people usually minimize or belittle the people who only "scratch" themselves.
Since Abuse or mental illness remove responsibility from the cutter, these are the first things a cutter blames for their actions. The parent who demands good grades is "too controlling" or "can never be satisfied" or "thinks I'm not good enough." The mental illness (bi-polar, manic depression) requires medication and the cutter is really the innocent victim.
Some cutters hide their cuts and some don’t. A quick look at MySpace or Facebook photos will tell you what kind of cutter the person is. The attention seeking cutter will always have pics of scars or poems with innuendos about cutting.
Cutter: I cant believe my boyfriend wont text me back, I hope I don't cut again. (but if I do, Ill tell him) I think he likes another girl. My life is horrible!
David: That sux, I'm going to only brothers memorial Saturday, he was shot while serving in Iraq. He was like the father I never had. He wanted me to get good grades and go to college, I loved him.
Cutter: yeah my asshole father bugs me about grades too, no wonder I'm all screwed up.
David: I'm sorry life dealt you such a terrible hand.
Cutter: me too
