Good evening, I want to ask whether what I do is included in the characteristics of self-injury or not, where I am holding a sharp object when I want to jab a sharp object into my skin, whether my hands or arms.

1 Answer:

Hello Lee


Thank you for the question.

Self-injury disorders will usually follow emotional distress, intense anger, and frustration. Therefore, this condition will not only cause you to have a tendency to hurt yourself, but also accompanied by other psychological symptoms, such as:

Difficulty in interpersonal relationships
Feeling helpless, hopeless and useless
Tend to behave impulsively, unexpectedly, and mood swings, and so on

Regarding your condition, it needs to be clarified, what factors actually make you want to jab a sharp object into your body? Is it out of curiosity? Is it because you feel guilty that you deserve to be hurt? Is it because you feel you are no longer useful, helpless, or ignored? Or is there a person or whisper who orders you to do the action?


Your condition can refer to disruption of self injury, or not. If your condition is only done out of curiosity, of course this condition is not dangerous and does not also refer to an abnormality. Different cases if the cause is another matter as mentioned above. It could be that your condition is indeed a form of self injury that can arise due to depression, bipolar disorder, delusional disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, psychotic disorders related to drugs or alcohol, schizophrenia, and so on.


You can check yourself directly to a doctor or psychiatric specialist to be assessed more deeply, whether your condition is still considered reasonable, or dangerous and requires special management. In the meantime, in order to prevent unwanted conditions from occurring, you should distance yourself from all forms of sharp objects, including knives, needles, razors, and so on. If you feel that there is someone or a whisper that tells you to stick that sharp object into your body, don't obey it and think of it as the wind and not real. If you have a problem, don't think about it too complicated, don't also blame anyone, focus on finding a solution to the problem according to your best ability, then submit all the results to God.


Hope this helps ...
