Is this normal?


Recommended Posts

There are other ways of dealing with problems that will make you feel better. The more you cut, the more you will want to & it will just go on from there. Then one day you would hopefully get help, but the scars will still be there. Nip this in the bud & take care of yourself now. Talk to a teacher or counselor at school. Tell them if there is something else going on in your life that is bothering you. If you really don't think you have any other problems, just be honest with them & tell your teacher you are cutting and don't know why.

I started cutting when I was roughly 9. It was so long ago and I was very young. Self harming began even younger but that method came a while after I started first harming myself.


You need to see someone about this. Find out why this is happening. Why you feel the need to cut, harm yourself. It is not unusual for a teenager to harm themselves, it's common amongst teenagers, however, it is not healthy in any way, shape or form. It's sheer hell and you need to talk to someone about this.

I am 13 years old am I just started cutting. Is this the average age when troubled teens start to cut or is this too young?


Average for who? and who cares about the average age. This is about you.


Let me explain the meaning of the title, by normal, I meant common. I am well aware that cutting is not normal, but I meant is this common for teenagers with troubles in their lives to cut themselves.


What are you troubled about hun? Talking helps...

As someone who has cut during my teenage years: stop right now. You are going to waste your days with compulsory thoughts in cutting, and you will focus more and more on your problems. It is really unhealthy, so stop now. Teenage depression are not cool - 5 years of your life will be ruined if you continue, and you can never go back. Enjoy life man. Don't get stuck in that vicious cycle.

I completely agree. Try stop while you're still ahead. It will get harder and harde to stop if you continue and xtina is right, you will waste alot of time being depressed and you can't get that time back.

I'm here to talk as is everyone else
