  • Great topic & talk! 

    You may wish to check out the IBPF “Psych Byte” webinar specifically about postpartum bipolar disorder by IBPF blogger/Story of Hope & Recovery/author Dyane Harwood:

  • I just self harmed yesterday. After watching this video, I realized that I was self harming inwards. She explained it so well; I’ve seen other videos but I feel like they don’t mention self harm caused by anger so I’m glad I was able to find this. Thank you!

  • I would always bite myself when angry as a kid and today as an adult I scratch myself when angry or having a breakdown. Recently I cut my neck with my nails and it’s healed up now. Just a coping mechanism I guess.

  • I haven’t done it in a year as of the other day. Its been extremely difficult. I want to make it longer but idk..

    Today like at this moment, I want to not to release my inner pain and frustration, but because I miss it. I miss the pain. I miss the blood. And the smell… I feel so messed up

  • I self harm for something to focus on whenever I stress if I can’t find something to focus on I’ll have a panic attack so there’s my reason

  • I’ve been head banging since I was a kid until now, I’m 22. I don’t understand why I did that as a kid. Now, I know why I still do it now, it’s easier to hurt ourselves and that hurt can immune us in a way. I can’t do anything about my shitty family. For me pain calms me and make me productive.

  • Looking into self harm it feels like only teenagers should get it then grow out of but is it quite often that people do it or start when adults with jobs, cars and household bills to pay. I feel like the stress of life can lead to self harm and eating disorders and suicidal thoughts.

  • I really really love punching myself in the head, it really calms me down and the feeling of pain, WOW its so satisfying������������

  • I dont know what to believe anymore…
    ��..�� medication doesnt help either to feel stuck and break down completely what’s the point to even continue feel i lost respect for myself.. I dont know what to say my life def..

  • my ex one time we got in an argument and she threw a tantrum started flailing her arms then punching herself in the head. ive never seen anything like it and it was the only time ive seen her do it. what could that mean?

  • Kati, my son harms himself as an act of anger towards me. When I get angry at him, not often, he cuts himself. I’d like him to seek help, but he did it twice and the councilors were not good. He suffers from anxiety and depression and I don’t know how to help. Thank you.

  • I experience alot of loneliness and the way I deal with it is I burn myself with a lighter. I went 6 months without doing it but have relapsed.

  • I used to harm myself by not wearing a jacket when it was really cold outside. I just felt like I didn’t deserve it to be warm, you know? It was crazy. I sometimes cut, as well. I’m potentially struggling with an ED and OCD. I feel like no one cares. And yes, I selfharm to get attention, fucking yes! Because I feel like I never got enough attention and I want people to notice that I’m not okay, I want them to worry about me. I don’t even enjoy how it feels. But I can’t do it rn, as I don’t find any blades in this damn house. I don’t know why I’m writing that down in some comment section but I honestly don’t care and I wish someone would.

  • I cut and burn myself frequently because I hate my body so I don’t see the need to preserve it. I suffer with gender dysphoria and I’m a coward so who cares about my body.

  • every time i feel numb or frustrated i will go to a empty space or a room to self harm by biting my arm until it leaves scar, so i feel a bit better after seeing the scar on my arm…:/ i do this because i want to feel something and to punish myself
