    I've always been ashamed of this, but whenever I'm feeling depressed and bored, my mind always goes to self harm. I don't know why, but for some reason it makes me feel better and gives me something to do with my hands, which are always shaking.
    Does anyone else have the same problem?

    when you are bored, you have nothing to occupy your mind and issues creep in. i cant say that i have self harmed through boredom, i have never thought of being bored, i just dont notice time. if you realise you are feeling bored, is there nothing you can do to distract yourself, come on here, play a game, listen to music, plan the next day, anything to occupy your mind, even housework.

    take care

    I was getting bored last night and I haven't SH in a long time, but really wanted to.. Think just stress and not having anything to occupy ur time makes it more easy to think about SH. :(
