May we suffer in silence no longer

This community is for people who self-harm and mutilate themselves in other
forms. It's an open community, but please be supportive. People here suffer from all different forms of depression. Someone on the brink of suicide does not need your
condescension and anyone who feels the need to criticize will be kicked out immediately. Possibly with no warning.

Self-Injury: You are NOT the only one.

Monday, March 1, 2004 is SI Awareness Day.

"We are male and female. We are artists, athletes, students, and business owners. We have depression, DID(Dissociative Identity Disorder), PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), eating disorders, borderline personalities, bipolar disorder, or maybe no diagnosis at all. Some of us were abused, some were not. We are straight, bi, and gay. We come from all walks of life and can be any age. We are every single race or religion that you can possibly think of. Our common link is this: We are in pain. We self-injure. And we are not freaks."

Feel free to sign up however there is quite a short 18-question survey I'd like
everyone to fill in when they join:

Go Here For The Questions

This is mainly to determine who harms, and who's just browsing/being a tourist.
Both are welcome.

Please fill in your answers differently to other people's, try to use original
content. If a particular quote matches you, please credit the source. Please use either bold (*<*b*>* and *<*/*b*>*) or italics (the same with i's
- remove the stars to get the HTML) so we can tell the difference between Q and A.

Feel free to post pictures of your scars, if you feel inclined to do so. But please put them under very clearly marked "cuts" (apt, huh?) so as people who may be triggered can avoid them.

The HTML for the "cuts" is below, and as with the font styles, just remove the *stars*!


There is a space between "cut" and "text"...

<*lj*-*cut* *text*=*"my scarlet tears"*>

If you want a good image hosting site, http://www.photobucket.com is highly recommended.

Please be aware that advertising other journals, and other irrelevant posts WILL BE DELETED.

Please stay on topic. Anyone found to be bullying other members WILL BE BANNED.

Thank you for your co-operation.
