My daughter is a cutter also, I'm not going to tell you to stop because I know firsthand that you WANT to stop. You just can't. It would be like telling a person with multiple sclerosis to stop shaking. You should see a doctor honey.... If you can't talk to your parents then try to go to the free clinic or have someone take you to your family doctor that you can trust. There are underlying problems that are causing this impulse. You have to treat those before you will be able to stop. And only therapy and maybe medication will help with those. It IS actually a type of " addiction" it is akin to OCD and ADHD. The bumps could be a result of scar tissue forming over scar tissue, or infection, or something more serious. No matter what, you've got to get some help. From a professional, hopefully someone who's experienced with this kind of thing. You look very young and over the years there WILL be serious damage, if you manage not to seriously injure yourself before then. I hope this is helpful in some way. My daughter is seeking help and is on a good course. She's not cutting right now. The impulse will never go away but you CAN manage it. Slip ups happen, you can't be too hard on yourself. And remember that people who don't have the issue themselves have no way of understanding what you're going through, they mean well and want to help but they don't understand that this is mot a personal choice for you. But please don't let that get to you. There are many people who CAN understand and CAN help. I hope you decide to reach out to someone... It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there like you have. I wish you happiness and love and well being!!! You can have those things, just please use that amazing courage to talk to someone close to you that can help

First off,stop cutting. It could lead to really bad things if say the knife or whatever wasn't clean. Stay strong <3.I know that this is easier say than done... But try writing in a journal and let all of your emotions spill. Secondly,tell an a trusted adult...even if you don't to it's for safety because what if you have an infection...?...

Stop cutting.... Please.... It could be infected, see a doctor. It may be serious. Talk to someone, okay? Please. I've also looked at some of your older questions. you need help. you must feel bad about yourself. but YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! no matter what anyone else says. please stop. you are loves, never feel low, okay? because everyone has a purpose. you were out on earth not to die, or cut or feel low. you were out here because you are beautiful in your own way. so please stop. and just leave a comment on my answer if you need help, or someone.
