My Story:
I'm 37 years old with 2 beautiful sons and the cutest darn dog you've ever seen (she's watching me type with her big dark eyes so I feel obligated to mention her). And, I'm obviously here for a reason. I cut (I also have epilepsy, an active eating disorder, and am 4 1/2 years clean from a cocaine addiction that almost killed me multiple times). I've become extremely creative when it comes to explaining the cuts and scars...although I'm starting to run out of material. My SIV and ED are a secret (as far as I know) and I know I should probably seek the help of a therapist...but I can't imagine (at this point) opening up to somebody who doesn't know me or understand me about my innermost thoughts and feelings...and yet I'm on an anonymous discussion board. Huh, that one doesn't even make sense to me.
