Hey there, i'm new and i was wondering if deliberately taking medication can be considered as self harming? I have a thing with pills. Everday ingest a ridiculous amount of pills, sometimes i take them for the sake of it. I especially take loads of pills if i am having a suicidal episode. I have big thing with <mod edit:resistance methods>, used to take 3 every night but that now has increased to 9 a night. I go through 225 capulets like it's water, i usually go through a box in a month. When i am upset i will drink a small bottle spirit/brandy, take some of my <mod edit: resistance - methods> and mix <mod edit: methods> 10 pills with it. I know its damaging my liver and but a big part of me doesn't care, sometimes the possiblity of dying isn't so bad. Sometimes i feel that constantly taking these pills will help me in the long run, as i'm too much of wimp to slit my throat and the pills will help finish me off Can this be considered self harming? and does anyone else have a similar problem?
