I just wanna make sure... - February 18th 2009, 03:40 AM

Jus a few answers will suffice for this post, but when I was making burgers today, I was cleaning up and I burned myself on the pan...this doesn't count as SH does it?!
It was unintentional, but I liked it a little (never really been a fan of burning) but I just want to make sure...

Im pretty sure that this wouldnt count as SH because it was an accident. But if you actually enjoyed it, I really hope you dont decide to begin practicing this because it is very unhealthy.


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.


Music is life. Start living.

I would say that this doesn't count as self harm, because you accidentally burnt yourself. It might have felt good but you didn't do it purposely so isn't self harm.

It wasn't self inflicted and you didn't mean to do it, so no its not self harm.
take care

Nope! This doesn't count as self harm because you weren't doing it for the benefit/pleasure/experience of the pain that resulted from it. =)

No worries. Just make sure to take care of that burn!

Self-injury (SI) or self-harm (SH) is deliberate injury inflicted by a person upon their own body and as this burn was not deliberate, it would not be classed as self injury.
Many people do get pleasure from pain, but it's not a healthy thing to divulge into.
