Hurting yourself in any way at all. Remarkably similar to eating disorders and substance abuse. Can be a cry for attention, a type of self-punishment or just a way of letting out frustration and depression. No matter what the form or reason, this is a disease and a serious, widespread problem. It is also extremely addictive and leads to downwards spirals of reclusive behavior, guilt and high-risk living.
Self-mutilation can be cutting, head-slamming, wrist banging, scratching, picking, burning, bruising- anything painful.
