Falling on purpose - December 26th 2010, 04:17 PM

I'm covered in bruises. Everyone knows why so I don't even have to hide them. I've been acting like it's an accident and I'm just terribly uncoordinated all of the sudden. But I'm falling constantly. On purpose. It hurts and I fell down stairs this morning and it's already bruising. Is that weird?

You need to stop hurting yourself. One day it might not just be a bruise.


I try my best to help, but that doesn't always mean I will be helpful.

I had a friend whose form of self harm was bruising. It started off with her purposely falling down stairs and stuff, and lead to her hitting herself with a hammer... That lead to the addition of cutting and it just kept progressing to where she almost didn't make it.
It's not weird that you're doing that; but it's definitely not okay. Any form of hurting yourself is bad.

The answer to your question is no, it's not weird, it's also not healthy, but you know that. Any type of self-harm is VERY dangerous and you always run the risk of doing much more harm than meant to. If you haven't you haven't already tried the alternatives thread here it is http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/ if you ever need to talk feel free to PM me anytime.
