Living on the Edge
It was a friday. I found myself downtown with a few hours to kill - so I decided to potentially seriously damage myself.

I went to a BurgerKing - they had yesterdays discount sign still up. As I was in line, the noticed, and took it down. I demanded they still give me that price.

I argued with the manager for 10 minutes. Finally he went to the back to call headoffice about their policy. Five minutes later, he apologized, offered me yesterday's price, and handed me the burger.

I ate it.

Yeah, that's living on the edge - lots of time back there, and nobody to see what he was doing.

I am an interesting way for a person to hurt him or herself.
Hello. Behind the LJ cut is my "intro" of sorts, which is very long and quite possibly slightly unusual. It isn't particularly racy but there is a bit of language and some adult ideas, so I'm assuming you're 18/21/whatever the devil "adult" is where you're at...before you click.

I would very much appreciate it if you'd read it. It might not seem exactly like what you'd expect to see in this particular community, but it is honest and fairly thorough, which maybe counts for something.

As you'll read, I fancy myself something of an unusual, interesting thing with which someone could hurt him or herself.

Much text, no pics. Hopefully interesting.Collapse )

To clarify: I'm not looking to start drama. This isn't a prank. I'm interested in any and all contact from persons who were interested in *any* way by *anything* contained within this post.

X-Posted to some degree. Mods, blast away if this doesn't belong here.

Thanks for your time.

Mental Damage
It seems that lately I've really been into mentally torturing myself.

Yup, I don't know what it is, but something about revisiting the painful past in my mind just seems so releiving. There is something in looking at lost (and non-existant) loves that just makes you break up.

Suicidal people get a bad rap. They're not all depressed and sullen and serious, some of them have a sense of humor, too! Like this guy in Thailand, who killed himself by sealing his nose and mouth shut with super glue. It's fun, radical, never-been-done-before, and best of all, it's a product endorsement! It sure puts the boring ol' gunshot-to-the-head to shame. Now, if only someone would kill him/herself with a spork...

The Piano Teacher
No serious, thinking cutter should go through life without seeing the film The Piano Teacher. The movie is a visceral, utterly believable look at a woman's twisted quest for passion. Erika (played with crispy perfection by Isabelle Huppert) is a seemingly strict and frigid piano teacher at a prestigious conservatory. But underneath it all, Erika just wants to feel something. She experiments with everything from voyeurism to self-harm, until she meets Walter, a handsome young man, and attempts to build a relationship with him.

There are several scenes showcasing self-injury in this movie, but the most notable one, the one that you can only find on unrated versions of the movie, is definitely the most memorable: In her bathroom, Erika takes out a razor blade, and begins cutting herself between the legs. Then, her mother calls her to dinner. Erika calmly pulls out a Maxi Pad™, applies it, and walks off to eat.

There's a lesson in it for us all: Why wait for it to bleed? Assert control over your cycle—It'll bleed when you want to. That goes for you gentlemen, too. Only women bleed? Not any more. You, too, can experience the tribulations of a bloodied gonad.

Yay for clever people! A strange boy mentioned this community in passing, and I think that I harm myself cleverly...so I'm going to tell other people about it. When I get a headache, instead of taking two extra strength Tylenols, I take 10 mg of morphine. Feminine cramps don't get Midol, they get a lot of Percocet! While this may sound like I'm just getting high (which I am), it also makes Tylenol, or Midol completely ineffective for any sort of pain. And I can only get the better drugs from my dad (no money). He gets new drugs every six months, so when I take them, I've got an unlimited supply for about 8 weeks. And I get new headaches about every six hours. After two months of non-stop being high on morphine, I grow to rely on them. So there is about a week of angry angry withdrawal, and another four or five of just kind of being pissed off, and trying very hard to get my hands on even a Tylenol 3. It's a fun-filled cycle of addiction and withdrawal, and absolutely no pain relief.

So, after careful deliberation, i came here to make stupid suggestions as to how we may make our silly little lives silier, and littler.
(aka Ophelia's guide to self destruction)

1. Always wear underwear at least 2 sizes too small for you.
2. Make sure said underwear is a thong.
3. Do not wash underwear.
4. Comsume nothing but custard.
5. Give presents to people that they gave to you.
6. Replace washing with burning.
7. Get a job in games workshop.
8. Listen to any of my advice, ever (Or comercial radio)
9. Come drinking with me.
10. Meet the family that spawned me.

I trust none of these will be helpful, and that you will think i am irritating.

Hello, i'm Phe btw... found this place amusing, whether i should, i know not.

Rusty razors, and rabid honey badgers.

Last winter I cut myself at a ski resort. It was night, and there's nothing like the Colorado sky at night. Stars everywhere. Anyway, I had taken a razor outside with me and made a small, shallow cut on my inner arm. I squeezed the blood out into the snow. The blood froze into it. A tiny spec of red in all that white.
I think about it whenever I get cold.

I don't know if this would be considered clever or self-harm.
I love to pluck my underarm hairs...
They're hard to pluck and I love the pain the pulling sensation causes.

ok this sounds kinda stupid or whatever.

okay so light a candle and get a razor and after cutting your elf take the razor and put it over the flame of the candle for about 2 or 3 seconds (depending on how much you want it to hurt) then put it on your cut wiht the razor face down and press realy hard.

|[New Here]|
Heya. New here.. I've been Si-ing for about five years now.. mostly cutting with razorblades/compasses/saftey pins/this metal, sharp-edges desk I have/misceleneous sharp objects/exacto knives. I was requested to stop about four weeks or more ago.. I've lasted this long which is miraculous to my own standards. Read up a bit before joining.. another contribution to the perfume idea is antibacterial shit, you know.. the stuff that goes from liquid to foam. Stings like a bitch on any cut, and keeps away infection. I'm all for Si but infection isn't my thing. An idea is to take up a rough sport and wear as little protective padding as possible, for example I play polo and get the shit beaten out of me. Pissing off the horse makes him bite you, which hurts for a while. Get an abusive relationship, or just abusive friends. Throw cutting parties. Burn yourself after you cut. Or any old time. I've learned that cutting chunks of skin out of sensative areas, or even just the wrist, hurts quite a bit. I use a normal razorblade |[shaving razor.. still attatched]| and quick movements on a diagonal really get the job done. Bleeds a lot, but I doubt anyone in this community is afraid of a little suicide. I'm actually looking for suggestions. Anything beside cutting I can try? I gave away my razors and can't get new ones. Over protective family would simply catch on to buying boxcutters and whatnot. Also I don't really want to be a slave to bracelets to cover up wrist slashes again, I've been through that enough. Just anything that'll hurt.. that's what I want. ::sighs:: Okay, I guess I'm done here for now. Thanks for reading.

I just stumbled upon this community and I thought it was interesting and might be a cool place. So what kinds of things do you mean to hurt yourself with, just physcial or does emotional have a play here too? Cause well I'm definitely into find new ways to hurt myself emotionally too... Not that I conciously seek it though.

Well, this isn't all that self-harmful or even clever, but what the hell.

You can make temporary tattoos by burning shapes into your skin using a slow and low burning material. Incense sticks work rather well and it smells good. And it hurts. That's harmful, I suppose.
