1350+ members. Self Injury/Suicide support community. Anyone can join.
If you SI, used to, think about it, know someone who does, etc; feel free to join.
It isn't pro or anti SI, it for support, and support you *will* get there or could give.

It's like a big family more than anything, with new people coming
everyday & sometimes people feeling recovered enough to leave.

It is a safe place to go and let things out, ask for help/advice
or anything of that sort; and it will continue to be safe too.

Remember to read the rules if you join, they're easy to follow but very important. :)

Hi, My name is Alice and I have been cutting for a record of five years. Most were out of anger and resentment toward my family. I never thought of it as a hobby till now (I obviously need help -_-). My life is falling to pieces and I am sure I am not the only one. Cutting myself helps me realize I am still alive...
Hell, I can't even believe I made it to college. I tried to change my life, I tried coping with life in general and as of last month, things went down hill. I started a more extreme kind of sadisitc hobby. Burning. It hurts...but I need the pain. So many scars to remind me of the times I could have died.
Sure, I'm somewhat "normal" on the outside, normal as a teen can be anyway. But doesn't psycho's look just like everyone else?
I'm miserable, depress and lonely. Who could blame me, I push people away. It's all for the best.
I can't say I wear a mask. If I'm happy, I let the world see it. If I'm sad, I make sure everyone's day is as crappy as mines.
Friends and family know of my scars and they love to tell me how much of an idiot I am. Thank you. I know its stupid to cut oneself's body, but if they weren't giving me so much crap in the first place, I wouldn't have done it.
The strange thing is, is that I love it. I love to hurt myself. I love to hurt myself more than people do, because it gives me the satisfaction that I am in control of my own life and emotion.
I have no one trying to help me with this problem, aside from me. Some friends they are, eh? My family could care less, as far as I know.
My scars are way of expressing myself, to show my pain to the world.

Hi, my name is Katie & I just joined. I'm nearly 16 and I've cut for about three years. I started cutting partly because my dad is emotionally abusive and partly because I've always felt somewhat worthless and alone. When I was a kid and I was mad at my mom I threatened to cut off all my hair (I think I was about ten) to make her understand how upset I was. Not that that has anything to do with self-injury but I guess it shows my natural mentality of "you'll-never-hurt-me-as-much-as-I-hurt-myself".
I am trying to quit right now because I finally have a support system and I don't want to be unhappy anymore. I have a friend that's bulimic and another friend that cuts so we're all trying to quit together. Our boss/mentor is really supportive of us, she's like the mother I wish I had. I might go live with her this summer if things get bad at home, but we'll see. Anyway now I have people that care about me, and I'm trying to rise above all this.
Anyway, hi. Great community and I love the title.
<3 Katie

Hey, my name is Alethea. I was just browsing communites and I came across this one. I used to cut, alot. All over my body, my hips, breasts, arms, and ankles. I have been 'clean' for about 6 months now and I am proud. The urge always comes back and I have cut once ever since. It is really hard when you are addicted to something like that because for me, I know I dont want to die, It just takes ht epain away and sometimes I love the feeling. Lately it has been hard for me, real hard. So I joined to give and get some support. I know what it's like...trust me

so today i get home from school and of course my mom starts yelling at me again! go me
so i cant find anything again to cut myself with so i grab the metal POS cross my sister gave me with sharp edges andtake my lighter and start burning the cross... i take this burning cross and put it to my skin... shit did that fucking hurt. but when the pain subsided... eventually it felt great... i hope it leaves a mark becuase it looks pretty cool.. i guess if a burn can look cool...i think i need to do it a couple more times in the same place to get a really cool effect on it! anyways my life sux

which is worse...
dying on the inside
or haveing a life to live
on the outside


PS from the burn.. i got a cool blister and i keep picking the skin off for an even cooler effect... and i didnt even cry this time hurting myself, i was thinking of all the shit bad that has happened and took it out on myself in a way i wouldnt care about!

name's em

hey, i'm new here. i'm a cutter/burner and i've been trying to quit. so far i've gone two weeks without any SI. i joined this community because very few of the other SI communities seem to have very many burners. i guess burners are the outcasts of the outcasts? anyways...just wanted to say hello.

Hi everyone, just another quick note to remind you about my new community protege_moi created especially for people with problems such as depression, cutting, ect, but a place which can also be used to simply vent angry feelings or whatever. It's only been up a week and there are already nearly 100 members, making the community very active. The more members, the better, so please join if you interested :)


P.S I've tried to remember which communities won't allow advertising and filter this out of them, but this is going to be the last notice for the community so if I've accidently put it in a community it's not meant to be, please don't sue me :)
