Trig What is everyone’s method of self-harm?

I can not want scars as I wear short sleeves as a personal trainer so I bash my head when overwhelmed or turning anger back onto me.

I have never self harmed because of an empty feeling. I self harmed because of overwhelming emotions that my system can not handle.

This can be where survivors search for mother and father figures. Transference issues in counseling can occur and this is normal for childhood abuse survivors.

I cut mostly, to let bad out. To punish myself, I burn. I self harm because of the innate feeling of bad I have, which I am working on in therapy. HUGS Kit

I cut because burning hurts far worse. I have burned twice in the past though. I also used to punch myself in the face.

I do what ever I feel I need to do at the time (also depends what's around me and what I'm working with)

I do it for blood though, not pain

sometimes pain is enough, but most of the time blood is required to make me feel like it's succeeded

I used to starve. but since I can’t do that anymore (school stuff and my gpa falling, also no social interaction since people apparently bonding through food) I cut now. It’s still spring so it’s easy to hide.
