Hi I've just recently joined this forum. I'm looking for some input with what I'm experiencing, and would like to understand what's going on. Recently I've started harming myself and I love the pain that accompanies it. Nothing else in my life feels as pure and raw as this does, I know its wrong but its beautiful. Is there a reason as to why I'm compelled to experience this?

I also feel like I'm not in touch with my emotions at all. Sometimes my eyes will tear up and begin to cry in situations that are tough, but emotionally I dont feel anything even though I should.

I guess I'm just detached from it all?

Sorry, I know what's going on. I'm just trying to understand it all, and I'm looking for similar experiences.

Hi and welcome to the forum :)

Maybe it’s the release from doing it? When I first started I was the same as you have described but you need to be careful though as the release can become a addiction and you really don’t want to go down that path.

I hope with whatever you are doing, that you are taking care and getting things checked out if/when needed.

Is there anyone that you could talk to about you harming yourself?

hey, i wouldnt think of it as wrong, its just you and where are you are at the moment. there are many reason why you might be doing this, and all those reason are something for you to explore. Learn from yourself, dont stop looking. Personally i self harmed out of rejection and then for the pleasure. im alot more in control of it. Welcome buddy! (y)

It is how to cope with depressive moods. Find another coping method. Work out at a gym, it hurts but is good for you. Attractive people can find happiness simply for being attractive. What i am saying is being healthy can lead to greater things for you. Good luck.
