mscat Posted September 5, 2008 Report Share Posted September 5, 2008 I'd like to know what it means if anything when a person self injures severely? I do not think it is the norm for self injurer's to do serious harm to themselves. However, it does happen. Why is it hard not to severely harm oneself ? After doing it once? Is it that the pain is not felt as much anymore? and it is easier to to assult one's body? I ask because i've severely self injured and it is never too far away to engage in the behavior again. I would think I've learned my lesson however, it is not about lessons learned. I get so disconnected and far away from myself that nothing is real anymore. That is when i Self injure badly. It starts out with stress, and builds up from there getting worse and worse. Then when things are at it's worse nothing makes sense anymore. It is a force, or drive to do bodily harm, and won't be resolved until it is followed through. Then, there is a trip to the ER, AND CCU, and surgery, skin graphs, stitches, Iv's , Doctors, Nurses, infection, Blood machines, excrutiating pain, bandage changes evaluations, staying in there for 7 days. WHY would anyone want to be put through all that, then be badly scarred for life? I'd certainly like to know the Psychological reasons behind such extreme Self injury? That way I can know myself better. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
