Compulsive Self Harm
When I am distressed, I will begin clawing at the skin on my arms and face. I often donâ€™t realize Iâ€™m doing it, and no one ever tries to get me to stop, even though Iâ€™ve made it clear to my friends that I want them to.
To top it off, my parents donâ€™t take this seriously, and think itâ€™s just a â€œbad habitâ€. No parental support means no medical help.
If I keep doing this, Iâ€™ll probably have scars. Iâ€™ve tried cutting my nails, too, but even then I just start gnawing on my lower lip until it bleeds.
Compulsive self harm sucks.
