Form of Self Injury: Cutting, bruising
Why do you Self Injure? Stress reliever. Keeps my thoughts at bay so I can concentrate and so I can just forget.
When was your first time? When I was twelve with a metal pick of sorts.
Where do you most often Self Injure? I used to cut exclusively on my wrists, but I can't because it's too hard to hide. Now I do it on my right thigh.
What do you use? Eyeliner pencil sharpener blade.

Ever been in treatment for your Self Injury? Yes, when I was 13 I was hospitalized for being a danger to myself and others.
What are you hoping to get out of this community? I am hoping to meet other people who are like me so I don't feel as alone.
