    I wasnt sure where to post it, wether in eating disorders or self harm.

    but while i was eating busicuts, i noticed that i crushe them into the roof of my mouth so inflicting abraisions where the skin comes off the roof of my mouth.

    since then i've noticed it happening at other times also. its sub concious untill i finsh eating, then i can feel the 'sores' on my gums and palet.

    anyone else exerience this?

    note i'm not doing it on purpose. its sub concious.

    Sounds like a habit to me. I do a similar thing, peeling/biting the top layer of skin off my lips. Like you, I don't realise I'm doing it.

    Since you're aware that you do it afterwards.. perhaps try making a conscious effort to not do it? Pay attention to what you're doing when you eat, and see if you can stop yourself.
