[TRIGGER] I was a cutter a few years a go and life has been good (lost 70 lbs and got into the college i wanted) but I keep on feeling so sad. I am a loner and that probably is helping causing me to relapse. I just can't stop hurting yself but I'm "smarter" this time ie. doing it on places people wont see and i have tried burning.
