I haven't cut in a long time, and I don't remember experiencing the
urge. It is probably at least 10 years. I don't even think about the
scars I have, although at times in public I have noticed some people
seeming startled. It doesn't bother me. I also realize that many
people have considerably more scars, and more extreme ones.
I think for a while I really needed to. I was lucky enough to
eventually find other outlets, one of which is my website.
At times, I wonder to what extent people assume my website is like
cutting. For me, though, it's different. It's not just a release, or
a way of expressing the internal externally, it's about trying to
effect change, in whatever ways I can.
