How do you react when you see other people's cuts/burns/whatever? I've started to notice that I feel queasy when I see someone's accidental cut, though I may have done something twice that bad to myself. Self-inflicted wounds don't bother me at all. Thinking about it now, it seems completely irrational. Anyone else have the same experience?

I totally relate to that. When people bring it up, it's generally to make fun of cutters and I want to tell them how ignorant they are, but at the same time I don't want to feel judged about it, even if I know they're just ignorant pricks. I think on a certain level, the whole "angsty mall punk cutter" stereotype is just a way for them to explain an act which to them seems completely counter-intuitive and bizarre.

And when my mom brings it up (she doesn't understand but she's generally empathetic) I just want to crawl into a hole. Even if she's not being judgemental, I feel like such a worthless excuse for a human being.
