    Does anyone else feel the overwhelming urge to damage their face?

    Not overwhelming, but I do sometimes think about breaking my nose to get a free nosejob. Yeah, I'm a nutcase.

    I have the urge but have never done it out of fear of scarring.

    I sometimes scratch my face, but not hard, so it doesn't leave scars. I also bite my lips until they hurt. Once I was really drunk and as my hand was near my face I burnt it with a cigarette. I didn't do it intentionally and I didn't even realise what I was doing at first. It was as if I didn't care at all, so I didn't even feel it.

    Yes. Usually my urge is to hurt my eyes. I am not sure why and have never felt like analyzing it to figure it out. Maybe because they're what sees? I don't know. But the urge can be rather strong sometimes. And it isn't always my eyes specifically. It has been other parts of my face, too.

    I use to pick my lips until they bleed and really hurt, that is actually the first form of self harm I did from I was 12. But other than that I haven't harmed in my face. But I do have the reoccuring urge to leave a permanent scar across my eye or cheek.

    i scratch my face with my nails, but never enough to leave any marks that last more than a few minutes. i don't want to have to deal with having scars or marks on my face.

    Yes lots of times, although I don't want people knowing what I'm going through so that stops me

    I once cut myself just under the place my hair starts. That way the hair would conceal the scar. (It wasn't really a success, as the skull sits right under the skin)

    I also have fantasies of cutting through the cheek, but have never actually attempted to.

    yeah, ever since my friend joking pretended to choke me with a vga cable cuz we joking around, the pain against the adam's apple felt different...

    but please dont damage your face, cuz u can leave scars and im sure you dont want to see scars every time you look in a mirror..

    That's quite common. Some people self harm because they hate there appearance, and your face is probably something you see often. Even
    if you don't hate your appearance, your face represents your identity, so anything you dislike about yourself could trigger this. Furthermore, your face.is a sensitive area, and allot of pain could be caused by inflicting damage here. Almost a year ago i sliced open my lip... I told my parents i fell down the stairs :') . I wouldn't recommend courting.here though, there are some nasty people in this world, and viable cuts could cause you allot of upset Dx

    I was born with a strange face so I'm usually the attraction of ridicule or straight up being stared at like a freak. But I've had the desire to either injure one of my eyes to the point where it can no longer be used, but most of all, I've always had a desire to gain a Glasgow smile... (have my mouth cut open so it gets extended nearly up to my ears).

    I already have a reason to be looked at in disgust or horror, but I would love to smile wide enough to freak others out even more. Not just I want to have my face damaged, but my whole body broken beyond repair. I'm already broken mentally and emotionally, so why not physically, as well.
