We are simply hurting. We all have our various reasons, none of them may have anything to do with the above. We are just angry with ourselves and our lives, we feel bad and sad and whatever else, and because we're so often told that we're not allowed to get angry, the only way we can show the anger tand the hurt is by self-mutilation.

I don't know. When I don't know why I really do/did it myself, how can I speak for an entire generation of women who are doing this? Think about it... think of some of your own theories.. write me about it... and don't feel alone - because you're not.
