What do I do? I'm already a cutter and everyone tells me if I don’t stop one day it will lead to suicide. Is there anything that could maybe help me???
Cutting does not necessarily lead to suicide, but it certainly puts your health at risk and is an indication that you’re having a really difficult time expressing your feelings in a direct and effective manner. It is a way of saying “I’m feeling terrible pressure and I don’t know how to get some relief!” It’s very important that you speak with a therapist about this behavior.
Unfortunately, this is not something we can adequately or properly respond to in “Dear Trevor.” We urge you to let a responsible adult know what’s going on. If you’re not yet ready to speak with your folks, a trusted teacher or counselor about the cutting, please call our helpline right away at 866.4.U.TREVOR (866.488.7386).
