How To Stop Hurting Yourself?
Good afternoon, I am a 12th grade student. In the past few months I have had many problems with my family. As a result, I often hurt myself by cutting my arms and thighs so that I don’t remember the problem. I do self-harm almost every day until one day I know my friend and I told him and did not do it again. But a few days later when I saw sharp objects that want to hurt myself came back and I did it again even I was very happy happy and satisfied when the blood flowed Please explain whether I have a mental disorder and how how to stop these crazy things Thank you 🙂
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Violence is not always physically, violence can also be in the form of mental violence. Which in mental violence, this condition can sometimes be more dangerous than physical violence because the dmapaknya can not be seen directly. And instead, this mental violence can appear accidentally. That is, a child who sees his parents often quarreling, may be traumatized, even though the parents' argument is not directed directly at the child.
In your case, we understand that when a person feels confused about where he should vent his emotions, he can channel it to various things. Some are positive, and some are negative. Some channel it into sports, some channel it by shouting, being alone, eating as much as possible, slamming things, and of course there are those in the form of self-harm. In some cases, this may be a reflection of the person's subconscious that he feels himself responsible for the problems that occur. Regardless of the background of the problem you are facing, how to vent like this is clearly not true.
The problem is, in contrast to physical illness where there is a cure for fever whatever causes the fever, cough medicine regardless of the cause of the cough, and allergy medicine regardless of whatever the cause of the allergy, in mental problems like you are experiencing, the treatment must be based on what is the background of your problem. People who are depressed because of debt are certainly personal improvement advice that will be given to them will be different from depression due to a breakup. So, we strongly encourage you to see yourself to a psychologist or to a psychiatrist. In front of the two professionals, you can tell all the problems you face, as complex as any, without feeling embarrassed or judged. Your psychologist or psychiatrist will be able to determine whether you really have a particular disorder or not, and if so, what treatments and therapies are most appropriate for you.
What is clear to you now, everyone has the right to live a better life and each person has their respective trials. People whom you envy or whom you see are happy, have their own trials and problems that they may not be able to solve. Just focus on yourself and your own problems, take certain steps, think positively, and believe that you can be much better than now. So, hopefully answering your question.
