one person said that ear piercing is not a form of self-injury... typically it isn't, but it Can be used as another form of SI. i myself attempted to quit or atleast cut down on self-injury, specifically cutting, and it resulted in my piercing my own ears and using other forms of self-injury. thats what can happen if u try to stop by yourself and see little reason to.
but the variety of self harming actions is large, and anything that can harm ones self can be a form of SI.
Where'd all those piercings come from? I didn't see them yesterday, but you didn't go out last night... did you pierce them yourself??! Augh.. i cant imagine ever doing something like that, that would hurt...
