Bleeding to Ease the Pain: Cutting, Self-Injury, and the Adolescent Search for Self (Abnormal Psychology)

Bleeding to Ease the Pain: Cutting, Self-Injury, and the Adolescent Search for Self (Abnormal Psychology)

Cutting and other forms of self-injury are often cries for help, pleas for someone to notice that the pain is too much to bear. As Plante discusses here, the threat of suicide must always be carefully evaluated, although the majority of cutters are not in fact suicidal. Instead, cutting represents a rapidly spreading method for teens hoping to ease emotional pain and suffering. Bleeding from self-inflicted wounds not only helps to numb the cutter and vent despair, it can also be a dramatic means of communicating, controlling, and asking for help from others. Plante describes the frightening developmental tasks teenagers and young adults face, and how the central challenges of the three Is (Independence, Intimacy, and Identity) compel them to cope through self-destructive acts. Readers will come to a better understanding of these struggling teenagers and the dramatic methods they employ to ease and overcome their internal pain through a desperate need to cut and self-injure.

You guys didn't think I was trying to get myself out of my weigh in did you? Well, I didn't a matter of fact, it's been on my mind all week. I had a hard time...not in resisting temptation, but with just being hungry all the time....and cranky(ier).
I tried to get myself to lose weight by simply cutting back on calories, which normally works...but really? It sucks! I'm missing the most important element of this whole process: exercise. I've been complaining about my feet lately- my heels have been hurting so tomorrow I'm buying myself a new pair of Asics....and a jump rope. It's time for an ass whoopin' cross training session. It's time to sweat, run, jump, and not stop until I'm sucking wind. It might sound like torture, but really....I think it beats being hungry.
Total weight lost this week: 1.1 lbs.

I wasn't too happy about it until my friend said, "Well, one pound a week equals 52 pounds in a year, so.... it's not bad."

Also, did you know that for every pound you lose, your knees think you lost 5. :)

2 December 2007 Day 55

I don't think I need to lose weight. None of my friends or family think I do. My BMI is 22. So why is that every time I have to see a dietician, they give me a meal plan that cuts my calories no matter what I say? Why is it that just about every doctor I see assumes I'm trying to lose weight, or recommends that I do?

It's because I'm diabetic.

I used to weigh 10 lbs less. For years, I had been underweight. In March of 2006, my doctor put me on Actos because they thought I was a Type 2. I gained 10 lbs (of fat) in less than a month before I stopped taking it. I changed shape - I didn't gain in places and patterns that I would normally. I have TRIED to lose this weight, but nothing touches it, so I gave up. I threw out all my old clothes and bought new ones, four sizes bigger.

Every time someone says I should lose weight because I'm diabetic, I cringe.
