Hi. My name is Calli (musecalliopeia), and I am now 23 months clean of cutting!

I started cutting when I was 16. I am now 34. Prior to getting into recovery, the longest I'd been able to go without cutting was about a month and a half.

I recently opened a new self-injury recovery journal, selfinjuryanon. Please feel free to come by and check it out - anyone is welcome to join. I want this to be a safe, supportive place for people to come together and share their experiences.

I don't post about my new community to be obnoxious - I post because I'm proud of the recovery I've found, how long I've gone without hurting myself, and I want to help other people. I'm proud of the members of my new community, and the way that they are opening up to themselves, to one another, and how they are reaching for help, and reaching out to help.

See, a couple years ago, I hit bottom. Hard. And when I looked around for help, I couldn't find anything, really. There was no "self-injury [or self-mutilation or cutters, or whatever] anonymous". I talked to therapists and people who worked in the recovery community, and they didn't know of anything. So I created this community to be a safe haven for people who self-injure. There are a lot of us, and we mostly feel so very alone.

But we're not alone. We have each other, and we can help each other get through this. We all know how tough it is, and we're learning how satisfying it is to make it through.

So yea... basically we do not have a happy jessy… Today I had to present for English and recite a thing from Romeo and Julie memorized. So I walk in the class all ready to do this and shit and then once the teacher says you may start… I freeze. and start sobbing and then out of no were I faint and then when I wake up I say I love Shawn… and then I started crying again… this is so hard for me but I guess it makes him happy and that’s all I care about… I haven’t cut since the break up and I don’t intend to... I’m going to try and get clean.. including drugs and stuff…. So yea. but the thing is, is that i love him soo much and it hurts soo bad not to talk to him. But i was the one at fault this time so i have to deal with my pain... Uggh i hate this....<3

Wow i don't know what to day...
My mom is being a total bitch right now i mean i only literally have 2 pairs of Jeans i can wear because the birth controle made my hips get bigger so i don't fit into anything anymore.. and i also need boots for the winter and she like you have what 20 you go buy it. I'm like mom you always said if i NEEDED somthing you would get it... and a 20 isn't even enough to buy a decent pair of jeans... She has always made me buy things i don't need and now she's gone a lil to far. Me and my parents don't really get along... but w.e. i mean uggh i don't even think i can say what goes on in my own home. I wish i could but oh well.

I'm getting pissed really easily lately and i dont know why i think i'm under WAY to much stress and i don't know why i'm letting it get to me i feel like i'm running around like a crazzzzzzy lady all the time and i'm pissing a lot of friends off because i'm not really with it and ready to hear them bitch about every lil fucking thing...
....Ughh Help....

what do you do when the person you love (like really love) breaks up with you and you can't function anymore... you can't think or be happy and all you can do is cut...?

Name: Jessy Fisher
Age: my lj says 17 but i'm 14 (I act older cuz i have seen to much and been threw worse)
Why did you join? Because i like to hear other peoples stories and have people to talk to about mine people who understand.
Anything Else about you: There is a lot to me and i'm scared to let people get to know the side of me that cuts so i was wondering if people in this group could help.

I'd post a picture of my scares but i don't know how. so if someone could tell me that would be cool.

2 Cuts Make a Scar.

This last month has been hell.

We had a tech for the marching band at our school (yeah, I'm a band geek). He was the greatest guy you'd ever meet. He always understood whatever you told him and had a great sense of humor. Then, one day our principal comes up to the band and tells us that Eric resigned...was FORCED to resign. He wouldnt even tell us why, and that day, some of the strongest people I knew broke down and cried.

Exactly a week later, we saw on the news, that Eric had been arrested for "inappriopriate sexual contact with an underage student." Here's what the news didnt say: 1) the relationship was consentual 2)she was 18 in a matter of weeks 3) the parents refused to press charges

By the end of that day, the main topic throughout the school was that Eric raped someone in the band. I hate that these ppl who have never met him can judge him by one action. What about all the good he's done?
Then someone in the band has the nerve to mock the people who cried over Eric's arrest. everything just piles up...Dad goes to California, grades drop, unexcused absenses, detention, robbery, alcohol...it just keeps getting harder, and I'm not sure how much more I can take...
