Self-harm is therapeutic for me. I get into disagreements with my parents a lot (they’re separated). In order to make one happy, I’d have to upset the other. When they fight, they drag me into it. Jeezuz, it’s their problem not mine! It’s suffocating. After a fight, I reach for anything sharp (blade, scissors, knife and the like) and cut myself when no one is looking. No one knows, since I leave the cuts in obscure parts of my body. It’s because of this that I’m still doing well in school and socializing just fine. I’m slightly scared that I’d become overly dependent on this in order to keep functioning.
