S.I. a.k.a. Self-Injury
I thought since we added a new article about ADHD, why not about S.I.?
Self Injury is serious. Cutting, Burning, even pricking are common forms. S.I. happens when one is depressed, and can’t find any other way to cope.
Many people are terribly judgemental about people who use self-harm. They aren’t insane, just very sad.
S.I. sometimes leads to suicide.
There is one popular support group known as “RuinYourLife” devoted to helping those who S.I.
People S.I., because, yes, it feels GOOD to them. The Physical pain eases their emotional pain.
Goths…There’s another relevant subject.
1. NOT ALL GOTHS ARE SATONIC.
2. SOME GOTHS DO S.I.
3. There’s more to goths than people think…
Cutting…it’s hard to describe. It’s like an addiction…like…smoking. It’s hard to stop. Many S.I.ers come from abusive families.
S.I.ers are not crazy. They are depressed, battling to stay alive each day while most of us have loving families that we seem to take for granted. Don’t.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
