    I guess it could be classified as a disorder, yea it can be comorbid with anxiety and depression but it can also stand on it's own. You don't have to be depressed to cut, you don't have to be in a panic to cut, sometimes it's just cutting and nothing else because it makes everything feel better for a moment.

    That's true. It is usually due to some underlying issue though, or it could be classed as an addiction

    Ps admins/mods, thanks for not deleting the link due to attachments not being allowed
