Bite myself. - February 7th 2011, 06:53 AM

hi. i used to self-harm REALLY BADLY. i would be black and blue and dizzy. BUT THE GOOD PART IS I'VE COMPLETELY STOPPED!!.
... And basically i didnt stop slowly, i stopped at one go!!

Anyway, i was thinking about it, does anyone here ever Bite themselves?
I used to bite, and i've still got scars, they last longer than razors...

It wasn't cool though, it was really crazy intense emotion.

I have bitten myself before. Only leaving indents for 5-10 mins. Nothing that broke the skin or anything though. I don't think I could.

I used to too, more when I was little. I did it last in October of 2008 when I managed to break the skin a little and the marks lasted for days. It scared me so much I said I wouldn't do it again and I haven't.

First I think that it's great that you have stopped, very few people can go cold turkey. I bite myself sometimes also to point where I leave really bad bruises, so you aren't alone.

I think it's great that you have stopped biting yourself. That's an amazing accomplishment. I don't recall ever biting myself, but as you can see, quite a few people have so you aren't alone.

Take care and good luck with your continued recovery.
