I would like links to research on adults that starts selfharm with no history of self harming before. My therapist tells me its highly unusual. I am diagnosed with Dissociative disorder not otherwise specified (DDNOS) and PTSD. And i would like to hear others experience as well.

As a forum we cannot guide you to these. But if you click on the information bar at the top of the screen and click on self harm that may be of use to you

I started self harming as an adult - It would be great to talk with someone else about their experiences too.
