Depressed and Cutting: Why Did I Self Injure?
Depression and self-injury. I have experience with both. Since the age of 15, I have been cutting myself as a way of dealing with my troubling emotions.
I know, for some of you, this is shocking and perplexing. “Why in the world would anyone want to harm themselves?!”
That’s what I’m addressing in this video. Why I self-harm, engage in self-injury.
If you self-harm, I hope you’ll bring some insight into this difficult to understand way of coping. Comment below and share why you self-injure. What does it do for you? And how does it relate to your depression?
And, if you would like to do a response video, please send it to: info@ healthyplace.com. I’m looking forward to your responses. Veronica
