Unfortunately we can't diagnose you here, but I would say it's important that you get a referral to a psychiatrist. Cutters use the cutting as an outlet to feel pain or release pain. Even though you've stopped, you are still getting cycles of depression. See your family doctor and get a referral - the sooner you do that, the easier it will be for you.
I am a 42 yr old male and I have done some cutting myslef, only because I didn't want to feel the emotional pain I go through. I am learning to do some journaling and just write down thoughts as they go through my mind. I do see a tgherapist on a regular basis. I am also taking some medication to help with muy illnesses suchas depression, anxiety or panic attacks. I do some natural healing techniques suchas taking daily walks around the block or to the market, just to be away from the apt complex. I also listen to sme music enjoy such as R&B, Rock or some Hip Hop. Basically anything to just keep my mind occupied. I find it most healing to just talk to a friend whether its on or offline about anything, within reason. Hope this helps
thank you for sharing that with me. i've never really met anyone else that does it, even though ive heard about other's do that. i have started writing, and journaling. its actually my major in college :] i've also tried to music thing and it helps, but once the music turns off its the same issue.
but anyways, thanks again!
