Cutting helps us know we are alive, that we are still breathing. Does that make sense to you?

And yes, it hurts, but what hurts more is the emotional pain, the physical pain in much less in comparison to the emotional pain a cutter is feeling. The pain only lasts a few seconds, but if we didnt cut, our emotional pain would be too much to handle.

And if you slit your wrist, yes you can die. There are some major veins in your wrists that if you cut them, will bleed a lot. Now if you cut "across the street" you could still die, but most people who want to die this way cut "down the street" or like down the wrist. Make sense?
Perfect description hun... Now you have to get through your problem with this,and I'll be there for you always.
