    I am going on experience here. I just recently was self injuring. It started out as mild cuts then got much worse, as like you I wanted deeper. So I cut deeper, struck a vein once almost killed myself, after other cuts I hit a nerve and now half of my left hand is numb, it's been a week like this. Just remember any act of self injury has it's consequences whether physical, or emotional.

    Instead of self harming how about self nurturing how about doing something kind for you that brings you joy and happiness okay There are ways to stop the self harming distractions ect. first thing is to get away from where you are go for awalk get rid of whatever you have that self harms Call a friend
    do something for you okay just for you
