self injury
by barbie girl, 14, female

October 14, 2005

Dear Diary,

Self injury has in a way overtaken my life. I don't know if I am the only one who is going through this. A lot of the times I feel like I am the only one going through this even though I know other people who are going through the same thing. The cutting used to be a lot worse... more than once a day and deep on my wrist. But, even though they aren't as bad or as often, I still haven't stopped. I'm afraid of what will hapeen if I don't stop... what if I get tetnus... what if I cut too deep... what if I get put in a mental hospital? I think about these everyday but it seems like cutting just over rules all of them.
