    Okay, moderators, delete it if it's not allowed, please.

    I just wanted to know some information, trying to see how self injury works with different people, I guess.

  2. I do self injure, though I haven't in about a month or so. :unsure:

    And usually it's just cutting, but at times, I've tried other ways too (burning, hitting).

    I guess you could say that I used to self injure, as I haven't really done anything serious anymore since February, I think. But then again, when is something selfharm?

    I used to cut and burn mostly.
    Nowadays I only run into walls 'by accident' during sports cos I'm so fanatic and I 'accidentally' bruise my knuckles from time to time. Though often, both really are accidentally, cos I don't really notice pain that much. (I have a high pain limit, if that's the correct word for it :unsure: ).

    Cutting's my main thing, though I also hit things a lot which has led to broken bones in my hands.

    I also overdose a lot, and mix drink with pills when it shouldn't be mixed. Starvation and purging are also my forte. I'm not sure if any of this last lot really counts though...

    I figured people would wind up asking.

    "Asphyxiation is the unconsciousness and ultimately death which happens when the supply of oxygen to your brain is cut off. This can happen in auto-erotic strangulation or other breath-control play; suffocation: the condition of being deprived of oxygen (as by having breathing stopped); 'asphyxiation is sometimes used as a form of torture'"

    Cutting or sometimes hitting. I usually cut my wrists and when I hit its something stupid like a wall or my door. Last time I cut was 2 days ago. I usually cut every few days.

    I put three cigarettes out on my arm in a desperate attempt to maybe get some help.

    It didn't work. They just committed me and the stupid Doc just gave me another crap SSRI.
