Default Re: self injury?

Self-injury can come in many forms such as, overeating, smoking, not exercising etc. Self-injury I think can be very apparent and sometiemes not. Today, our world is full of a lot of stress and people indulge in many ways that affect their health , income, and relationships with others. I think trying to love and respect yourself takes a long journey and improves with age due to life experieces and maturity. Self-injury is most frieghtening when one is sudicidal and strikes for immediate interevention and treatement. No one should be ashamed if they suffer from a mental illness, we all have weaknesses. I encourage anyone to seek help if they feel sudicial and not feel ashamed because depression is an imbance along with other mental illness.
Take care to everyone!

Thank You Very Much for creating the Self Injury section. I suffer from Bipolar and Social Anxiety Disorders and sometimes its just not appropriate to speak of in those sections, some people just dont understand.

I am new to the Psych Central Site and I already love it. I run my own group on Yahoo Health Groups but I was reading tonight and googled something and came across this awesome website packed with all sorts of information!!! I really enjoy it here so far.

Thanks Again
Take Care Doc

John,

think that this site is good for cutter's like me. I'm 34 married for the third time and have two boys 6 and 7. My husband now who is really a blessing in my life has taught me to Stop, Pray and Listen to what God is going to say.
It has taken a lot on my part as well to calm myself down, think and make that call to my husband before I do something stupid and cut again.
It is called self dicipline and it takes a lot of it. If a person is really tired of being sick and tired, they will want to do something about it in their life. You are only a victim as long as you allow yourself to be one. I know, I am a domestic violence survivor and I am no longer a victim because I will not allow that person to have control over my life any longer.

Good job with this site.

Cheers,
RHONDA FRANKS

Please take care of yourself and each other.

Best,
John

Are there other ways to cause self-injury?..What about an adult that bites their nails until they bleed. Is that self injury or ocd?

((((((dalescooter))))))))) there are *many* ways to self-injure. Any action that causes yourself harm that is intentional and meant to cause harm equals self-injury.

As for your question... it depends on the motivation. It could be anxiety ... or it could be self-injury. Really depends on motivations and feelings behind doing the action. Just my opinion mind you.

Hello Dr.John,
You were wary about posting. I was wary about reading. I asked myself is this going to influence me in a bad way. I decided that if I remember maybe I can read here, at least, when I am in the frame of mind to hurt myself. I have never injured myself because of something I have seen or read. I have only done so when I am extremely low, frustrated, disappointed & very angry with myself. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't think reading anything here should give me ideas--I hope.

Default Re: Welcome to the self injury room

I'm also happy this thread exists....
I haven't felt the need to cut myself in a long time...
But I just got out of a bad relationship..
And the guy I was with, I thought he was the greatest thing ever.
I thought I loved him...
But then he started drifting away from me for no reason.
I got scared.
I tried to talk to him but it didn't help any...
I cry myself to sleep every night...
I can't cut myself because I promised him along time ago that I wouldn't...
I feel guilty when I try to...
And now, he's spreading rumors about me.
People look at me differently because he's saying that we messed around...
When he knows that I was raped and abused and that I'm scared of guys.
I thought I could trust him.
Guess I was proved wrong...
What's wrong with me?
I'm so messed up...
He caused me to start feeling depressed and I know he knows.
I've been different since we broke up...
And yet he doesn't seem to care...
He doesn't even try to talk to me anymore...
I don't know if I can handle this anymore...
