I'm a recovered self-harmer, and you have no idea how addictive it is until you've done it. So don't judge

I'm not fully recovered. I'm in recovery right now. And to the person who wrote this, you seriously underestimate the amount of pain someone has to be in where the only relief they get is with a blade in their skin.

Self-harm has nothing to do with being a baby. In fact, I'm more mature than both of my older sisters combined. Like I said, you'd never understand unless you've done it. Stop judging people and the way they cope. People like you are the reason people do it. People who judge others are what causes problems like this

They are having serious problems with unresolved issues and don't know what to do with their feelings of frustration. The way they act out is seen as really disturbing by many people, so they are often further abused when they seek help (see the insensitive first answer to this question as an example of that abuse).
I recommend talking to someone with professional training like a school counselor or your doctor. Talking to your friends and family may get you more reactions that show similar insensitivity and unawareness of what your going through.
PLEASE Get help, it's easy to deal with if your in the care of someone who understands.

What if they are abused by there family and have no friends?
Report as
If you read my comment you will see that I said family and friends are likely to give them the same kind of insensitive reaction. I suggested they get help from someone trained, like a counselor or doctor. You just misread what I wrote, I think.

But what if they cant get to or afford stuff like that.
Report as
Every high school I've heard of has some kind of counselor. I know getting help now can be expensive or prohibitive for many reasons. I wish I could give you a "fits all" solution for getting hep, but I can't. You will have to see what's available in your area if your school counselor isn't an option.

People who harm themselves are suffering from a serious psychological disorder which can be life-threatening. They need help, not condemnation, and not judgement. Please understand that, like other mental illnesses, it can be treated, with therapy, or medication, or both. Moreover, it doesn't occur because the sufferer is bad, or weak, or sinful. If you have never suffered from a mental illness, you have no experience from which to make judgement calls. What's needed in this instance is compassion, and caring, and tolerance.
