Things That I Hate

Compulsive Self Harm

When I am distressed, I will begin clawing at the skin on my arms and face. I often don’t realize I’m doing it, and no one ever tries to get me to stop, even though I’ve made it clear to my friends that I want them to.

To top it off, my parents don’t take this seriously, and think it’s just a “bad habit”. No parental support means no medical help.

If I keep doing this, I’ll probably have scars. I’ve tried cutting my nails, too, but even then I just start gnawing on my lower lip until it bleeds.

Compulsive self harm sucks.
