So, I am a 13 year old girl and I have been cutting (with a proper blade from a razor) for coming up to a year now- I started when I was 12. It really helps me cope. My friend also self harms but gets all the support from family and friends that she needs. But doesn't know that I cut too. She only has self harmed 4-5 times and it makes me so upset about the fact that she has been doing it for literally 3 months and me a year and all the support she has got. Yet nobody has helped me. But that sounds really selfish, it just saddens me about how bad society is but I guess it's my fault. Anyways, whenever I throw my blade away or make a pact not to cut, which I have done countless times, I always either get a new blade or self harm again because i feel like i can't live without it. Is there such a thing as being addicted to cutting?
Thanks for reading xx
