Yes, I am lucky to have people here who care. :)

Cutting isn't a suicide attempt though. It's not even (although it can be) a cry for help. I cut where no one can see the scars. I have a few faded ones on my arms but that's it. I cut elsewhere. I don't want people to see the scars or the cuts or the wads of gauze I have to use. It's a coping mechanism. A screwed up coping mechanism.

> Wow! What a lot of good advise and support you've received today. Yes one thing I learned in psych is what my patients said over and over again. "When I cut I feel alive because I can see the blood". Not everyone can personally relate with having felt this way, but I did see most of the patients later say they were glad that their suicide attempt didn't work. Or if it was a cry for help, they were glad they were in the hospital where they felt safe. Fondly, Phillipa
