Why do some people cut their wrists? I dont see any point to it at all

This will probably get closed but yeah.

Some people do it to look cool, to get attention, some do it because they have a problem and it gets their mind off other stuff.

^x3 Don't write things you clearly know nothing about.


OMGZ. A thread in the pit that people write in that they know nothing about?! What a fuckin' shocker.


Not all people who cut, do it for attention assholes. You could know someone and be their bestfriend and not know that they cut, and considering your distorted perception on why people cut, I would understand why they wouldn't tell you. A lot of people who self harm, do it because they feel as though it's a way to express their anger. It's because they weren't taught how to deal with anger/rage/depression so they feel like the only way to feel better is to harm themself. They feel like they're making their pain no longer emotional but physical. You can deal with physical pain, because you can put a bandaid on it right? So it's as though they're handling their anger in the only way that they know how.

Also, self harming isn't a suicide attempt. If you're cutting your wrists to die, then yes, but "self harming" isn't to kill yourself. It's to hurt yourself, and feel better.

But some people think that inflicting pain upon themselves is a way to let anger out, and take it to "the man." However, those people are retarted.

well i have 6 nice big scars on my wrist, i wanted to die, i was dying, i felt myself going but i was rushed to the hospital by my girlfriend, are you saying i dont have balls?

I think he's talking about people who aren't actually attempting suicide...I don't understand people committing suicide anyway. WTF is that depressing? You realize that when life is over that's it...it's not like you get another chance to unscrew whatever is fucking you up.
#11
^actually, yes, you are a coward. You have a girlfriend who loves you enough to save your life and you actually think it's ok to not face up to life and its challenges.

Before this explodes, unless you've experienced self harm first hand, you won't get it, so shut up with the pussies.
Hey Meg.
Proud of you.

Killing yourself isn't fucking couragious,you're just escaping your life instead of dealing with it like a man .
Everyone can kill themselves..

You could say the same about a great deal of things...if this is true then I'd rather not relate.

Killing yourself is extremely cowardly. Getting on with life is the brave thing to do.

Correct.

I'm not agreeing that suicide is the thing to do. But excuse me, not everyone that commits suicide is upset about their suburban life. Some people actually have problems. It's pathetic that no one takes the time to understand or learn anything about anything anymore. If you don't know a thing about suicide or people who self harm, then don't comment?! Why are you people in here acting like you're an amazing psychologist when you clearly know NOTHING, about this stuff :/


BTW, if you don't understand the concept of suicide, why not look up any story about a person who has suffered trauma in their life. For example, someone who has been abused, someone who has been raped, someone who has lost someone very close to them their mom and dad died), and on and on and on.

If any of you had a brain, you'd look stuff up like this on the internet, it's not that hard.

Can people stop being dicks? If you don't know about cutting, you don't have an opinion on it. Not an educated opinion anyway. So STFU and GTFO. It happens, accept it. If you don't experience it, why waste your time putting other people down for it?

Quote by VivaLaJam
'Cause they're depressed so it gets rage out.
It's basically a pussies way of trying to kill themselves.

Self harming differs from suicide. People who self harm are depressed but are using slitting their wrists, etc as a way to cope and carry on with life. People who want to kill themselves just do it.

Nope, wrong.

A pussy would kill themself, someone with balls would carry on with her ****ty life, and try makin' things better for themselves, instead of duckin' out of it.

I'm not putting anyone down, I acknowledge that I know nothing about it, and therefore am asking someone to justify it to me or enlighten me as to what exactly the point would be.

We're not talking about suicide. We're talking attention *****s. That's what it boils down to.

Having to go to hospital for it's a whole other category, I wouldn't assume that's just for attention, but those emo kids who cut themselves need to get some perspective.

Actually cutting your wrist would hardly even kill you

From Wikipedia
Cutting Wrists
This entails cutting through the wrists & may damage the tendons, ulnar and median nerves which control the muscles of the hand, which can result in temporary or permanent reduction in sensory and motor abilities. [1]

It is not an immediately lethal method, as the arteries tend to try to spasm shut in response to blood loss. Bleeding to death by veins is even harder and rarer. It can take a few hours or even more to finally die from the blood loss, depending on a number of variables. It is popularly believed that wrist-slashing is more lethal if the cut is made along the length of the arm than across, due to the difficulty of repairing a lengthwise cut of a blood vessel. However, this method has little effect on mortality: while it is indeed much harder to repair the damage after the danger of blood loss has passed, it is no more difficult for rescue workers to prevent bleeding via compression, torniquette and other standard methods.


I'd say the best way to kill yourself is shooting at the head .

AHAHAH. Here's a wake up call, not everyone who self harms is emo. It's pathetic you all think that. AND, that's not what this thread is about. This thread is about people who self harm. Not emo whiney attention seekers. Not everyone who cuts is seeking attention. Read up on it if you think you know so much about it.

I could do that...we could also do that about genocide. However, I'm interested in finding out why it is that people would take their own life...I don't personally believe I could ever find myself in a situation that would call for suicide so I have a difficult time relating. ShaunFrusciante has obviously gone through it so I wanted to know what exactly he was struggling with that suicide would have solved for him.

Well that would just give you AIDS,unless you want an extremely slow and painful death,that's not the best way to go ...
Yet again,you're trying to kill yourself,why not spend a little on a new razor ?

I can't believe how naive everyone here is.

hm. I'd also like to give a big fuck you out to everyone. I usually don't like sharing personal information with the assholes of UG. But seriously. Some of us have had friends/family who have commited suicide and it's fucking insulting as hell when you act like it's not a big deal. Really.

Suicide presents an end to your problems, it's not necessarily that people actually want to die but they feel its the only way left for them to solve their problems.

It is a big deal to be sure...I'm just trying to understand it.

And for what it's worth, I'm sorry about your family/friends.

An end is not necessarily a solution, and it obviously isn't the only option. I just don't believe it to be a rational way to deal. However, I do understand that emotional trauma can leave you in an irrational state...
