I'm not entirely sure what to make of it. It all seems a bit too SRS. Anyone else watching?
Seems to be really disjointed at the minute and covering very little.
so it's hard to make a cohesive and focused show about it. It fascinates me as a topic because someone very close to me used to self-harm but this isn't as enlightening as I'd hoped, seems almost like a beginner's guide. The discussion of there being more pressure on kids in our generation was interesting though.
this is rubbish.
yur thread shuld've been "anyone self harm?"
not needed to in a long time though.
would you mind talking about it a bit? like the needed bit, could you elaborate?
sry, dont answer if im being nosey git
i obviously know nothing.
leave it out.
there are hundreds of reasons for it. some people don't even know why they do it. although i'm sure writing a little essay on how much you hate yourself made you feel much better.
I'm sure people experience self harm issues differently, it's not completely black and white, it doesn't sound like he's talking bollocks to me but that's a nice convincing argument you're making nonetheless.
i did it because i wnated to try it out at first, but slowly became quite dependant on the relase. as colin says the adrenaline kicks in and the focusing on the pain is somehting that can be very cathartic. i never did it to escape from anything, but i did do it to feel the pain, to check to see if i was still there, so to speak.
some of my closest friends don't know this tbf. but it's something ive never been ashamed of and might be my biggest secret. not that i care. its something that peple never ask about.
the reason i dont "need" it anymore is that i found ways to channel my thoughts and my need to escape into socialising, writing, smoking... replacing my vice with others. also, i was in a long term relationship that gave me the strength to not have to do it, and importantly i made a desciison to not go back to doing it when that fell apart. ive not done it in... years. 3 years or so.
glad to hear you're on the straight and narrow man (Y)
a very indie way of self harm mind, but self harm none the less
"i'mamotherkidsarehurtingthemselvesohno". that was basically it.
it was getting to me a little. I watched Room 101 instead.
I watched part of the self harm thing and then turned over for the start of Room 101.
but kudos to the programme makers for using a Big Lebowski quote in the programme title
