I don’t think I have depression but I cut to distract myself from how I feel emotionally. I don’t know why I really do it besides that and that I like looking at the cuts on my arm. I hide them and I don’t let anyone know and I will never unless they find out but I still feel like I’m doing it for attention. Usually when I cut its scratches and not much blood comes out but today I started doing it a little harder and more blood came out. I need help but I have nobody to help me. I want to be happy and normal. Hiding it is really hard and I don’t know what to do at things point. I need advice, please send some as soon as possible. Thank you

    Hi there Amber,

    look this is just from the outside looking in.

    you cut yourself I used too I  I knew was hurting are you? It’s okay if you don’t want to discuss it

    you are going in deeper now and that as you know is not good please seek help.

    long story I’m 40 now and just getting help. Don’t you leave it you are important and need to try to understand why you are doing this. That means professional help.

    please call your dr for advice,

    try not to hurt yourself sweetheart try to find the reasons why you do.

    you may well have depression this I don’t know but you certainly don’t seem happy

    really be kind to yourself your hurting you more.

    You say you don’t have. Anyone do you have a friend or a relative you can open up to someone that could go to your drs with you

    you are talking on here that’s a start

    take care

    vicky🙂

      I haven’t been diagnosed and I don’t want to assume. I may be but I don’t know if I really am yet, sorry if this bothered you.

      People cut for various reasons. It might not be depression. Sometimes it's based on something they did or how they feel, or "how" it makes them feel. My friend's son was admitted and needed over 300 stitches. He was not depressed, but bullied at school.

      i dont believe that amber is using this site for people to encourage behavior that we all think 

      is sad and bad for ones self esteem it is used to try and find help answers and support from peers  whom

      can help we do not encourage this sort of behavior at all we are here to help and support and give encouragement to help people move forward in a direction of help both spiritually and professional and sometimes personally .
