Mike came to see me and he was all excited!

Mike eagerly showed me this . . . . .

He’s now joined the ranks of other cutters, self mutilators. Am I supposed to feel happy for Mike? If I’m supposed to be happy for him, why don’t I feel happy? I’m not mad or angry at him. I’m just sorta stunned that he would do this to himself. People tell me that cutting releases some sort of chemical in the body which is a weird sort of high. It feels good, or so they tell me. If you’ve followed my blog you’ll remember back 4 or 5 months ago when I showed you pics of 2 other friends of mine who are cutters and the mutilation they did to their arms and legs. Maybe I’m missing out on something, but I don’t get what’s so attractive about cutting oneself. Maybe some of you guys out there are cutters and you can tell me what’s up with it.



  1. This is an absolute mystery to me. I heard of it for the first time just a couple of weeks ago. I would love know why someone would do this. It is just so foreign to my way of thinking.

  2. No, I don't understand it. The Daughter of a friend went through a phase, and I understood it as more a cry for help, or at least attention. Is it anything to do with the girlfriend problem you told us about earlier?Is it a group thing?I hope you get some more useful comments than this!

  3. I don't want to be guilty of judging others; there are also fads of tattooing and piercing. The problem is the matter of degree. One might look at some scars on the skin twenty years from now and wonder at the stupidity of doing this. Personally I am against doing things that will leave permanent markers; excessive tattooing and cutting for example; things that could be deeply regretted when you are a different person in the future. Tell Mike that this is not a good idea; I can't understand why such a cute guy would even consider doing this to his beautiful body. People have also died from infections like ecoli and this is not pretty. bfn – Wayne 😐 (it's icky!)

  4. I've known people who have cut themselves but it was always because they were in despair or depressed. I should imagine it's something to do with loss of blood. Although now I think about it there are many religious sects that flagellate themselves and experience a religious high.

  5. Hey, i dont consider myself a cutter. i have cut, but that was the past. i did it because i was under alot of stress. cutting, for me, was a reliece of stress. i know some people also do it for control. everything in there life is out of control, but you can completly control how deep you cut, or how long you cut, or how much pain you feel. iv never heard of getting a high from it. believe me, if there was a high from it id be on top of it haha. but it did relieve stress for me. its a nasty habit. the first time i cut was like 7 months ago, and i thought i had stoped, but recently i did it again. its almost like an addiction that you cant get away from. think about it, you can get away from drugs and the people who do them, but can somone really live without a single sharp point in there house?Peace

  7. Hi David, some people CUT to release pain from there body, or to feel pain to release anger, most have no christen thoughts in there life. I will pray for Rike. Chao Dean

  8. Hi David, you need not to be happy for Mike for mutilating himself. The mutilation is an expression of tensions he is feeling. May be he had some realy bad experiences in his past. Didn't you tell some weeks ago he got raped while he was in prison? Wish he gets help to work on his experiences and problems.hugs{{Rolde}}

  9. Cutting is often the result of oppression, boredom, lack to freedom and the like. It can be additive like many habits. Best not to start, of even find out what its like.
