Welcome to this community.

I'm ikomiko. You might like to call me Nikki, my friends do.

I created this LJ community because, well, I was a cutter and after a lot of things that have happened to me, I swore it would never happen again if I would help it. I've lost people I loved and my own faith in myself over self injury and I hope I will be strong enough to never do it again.

I have recently been seeing my school counsellor occassionally, and a lot of what he has said has helped me.

I'm going to fill in a little form thing about myself to hopefully give you some idea. If you want to fill this in when you join, that's fine, if not that's up to you. Feel free to add your own fields, too.

Name: Nikki
Age: Fourteen, nearly fifteen
Cutter: Yes
Method: Compass point, razor blades
Since when: I've cut since I was about thirteen
Scars: Six
Occupation: Student
Religion: Christian, Wiccan sympathies

I hope to see people joining, posting and commenting. All welcome. :)

Hey Nikki, I'm glad that you're seeing your school counsellor and that it's helped you. I just want to know that even if you find that you *do* cut yourself again, don't lose faith in yourself because cutting is addictive and it's something that some people do on and off, even if they want to stop.

Those friends you think you've lost, just go talk to them, you may find that you haven't lost them after all, only that you think you did. My best friend used to cut herself a few months ago and she pushed just about everyone, especially me, away. But in the end, she found that none of us had been lost.

Well, there was only one who left me, I'm on my last chance with the rest. He just had to run away, I don't blame him. He was my boyfriend at the time.

Thanks for commenting, anyway.
