“One of the problems with cutting is that it can spiral out of control.”

  1. Those are very valid points. Cutting does (in my experience) lose it’s potency and you simply don’t get the same results/relief that you once got. So you do have to take it up a level. I was once told by a psychologist that she didn’t see anything wrong with it as long as you didn’t do it so deep that you needed medical treatment. I wonder if anyone agrees with this position? I think, for some people, cutting can literally be a lifesaver. I’ve never really been able to ask anyone what their opinion is. Self harm is something you simply don’t /can’t talk about. For me anyway. So if anyone has an opinion to the psychologists position. I’d welcome a response.
