I do it not because I'm mentally ill but because it feels nice.
If you rapidly slash a few "styros" it feels nice once the pain subsides and you get a nice rush.>>4508
Kind of off topic really and I don't see the point of this post.
I don't believe someone self harms entirely for attention if it gets past "catscratches", though the attention is probably definetly a bonus.
Even if it was, isn't attention seeking when you go to such extreme lengths to get it indicative of a severe mental issue like BPD?
Could it be just that people react differently to pain so different people enjoy different degrees of depth?
But thanks for explaining how much more valid you are and shitting on people who regularly need stitches because its such a problem. Glad to know your reasons are legit and you're not an attention whore like the rest.
