Re: question please answer it would mean a lot
I think that those of us who wouldn't cut ourselves and don't feel that need to feel the physical pain instead of the extreme emotional pain can't totally understand the whole cutting thing.
But for your friends to twist your reasons for harming youself into something so lame as "attention getting" is just ignorant on their part! Good friends stand by you when you hurt, period! Why should they even care what your reasons are for cutting yourself? They should just care about you and your well being. Maybe through all of this you will find out who your true friends are. They are the ones who are still there for you.
Tell the people closest to you ( family?) about your cutting. Let them help you. People who love you will just want you to be happy and whole.
