News Flash: Cutting and Self-injury on the Rise
Cutting/Self-Injury is not just a “teenage girl’s” problem. Men/ boys do it, too. It is no secret that I, like most of you, grew up tormented in one way or another. For me, I was the outcast with severe “father issues.”
One of my mal-productive coping mechanisms was cutting, and it started early for me. This violent self-mutilation was my way out of my inner turmoil. I hid it from my family for years. I can remember the emotions that led up to the act, but I can never remember the pain. To me, that pain felt better than what was going on in my head.
