I don't think I'm coping at all as well as I'd like to at the moment, I'd like to know how other people cope with the guilt and injury associated with such self inflicted wounds. Any advice is appreciated.

Is there anyone in your real life who is likely to see your injuries and ask about them? I hide mine from everyone and if anyone did see any and ask I could claim my cats or the rescue dogs at the kennels did it :hug:

Are you suffering any pain or health complications right now as a result of self-harming? Don't feel guilty, just focus on taking care of yourself now.

Thanks Pinscher, apart from the physical injuries themselves nothing serious, I think some got a bit infected due to some inflammation but that passed quickly, so I'm ok in that regard at least.
