Once upon a time, I bit my right arm. A lot. :-o
I have the little scars to prove it. :dummy:

Yeah, I just suddenly started biting myself. There was quite a bit of bloodletting, especially when I bit the inside of my elbow (the place where the arm folds, also where they used to put needles in my arm for bloodtests).
Since that day, I can't see the veins on that arm, just my left arm. :onfire:

Ouch, that sounds too painful. Dx I'm unable to hurt myself until I get injured, it just... hurts too much. x')

It was definitely one of my more painful experiences. ^^; To this day I have no idea why I did it, but it stopped almost as quickly as it started. :spin:

Indeed. :dummy:

I'm glad you think so~ It's from a game that's as old as me! :la: One of my favorite games of all time. :D (Remember this: [link] )
In fact I'm listening to the audio of one of my playthroughs right now. (It's 2 hours 40 minutes long, a BIG mp3 file XD)

PLAYED PORTAL 2 AND SOBBED FOR HOURS
REGRET NOTHING

Hahah Not that kind of harm I know.
Uhh Well I've thought about it before, but like before I'd do anything crazy I take a step back and say
"hey man don't loose your marbles because of -insert situation here-. It'll all pass and you're whole life is ahead of you"
So yeah I talk myself out of things because common sense gets the better of me every time. :meow:

BEST KIND OF HARM
Mmm, I never seriously considered it seeing as how I cope with mental pain better than physical pain anyway, so... yeah. xD
If I bump my head into something or hit myself it's either accidentually or some kind of self-punishment for being dumb x)

Did it a year ago? maybe a little more then that lD I struggled and I felt like my world was falling apart, and I tried it. It actually felt better then the emotional-pain, distracting me from the problem, ect. lD theeen I told my parents because I didn't to cut myself to feel better, then having to go to a shrink, take happy pils, ect. xD I still go to the shrink, but I am off the medicine and all of that..

Err, well physically it was once while changing the lancet in my pricker. I scratched my arm with it, but once I saw a little bit of red I freaked out and stopped it. I wouldn't ever want to do that again or anything with something worse...

I hate it when people shove it in your face. Or when they post pictures of it on the Internet like, "omg im in so much pain ):". I don't like attention whores in general.

SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't really hate it but I can't say it makes you believable - most people try to hide their scars and are ashamed of it, so when someone is all "HEY I CUT" it's just... well, it's not really believable.
People should be able to talk about their problems but there's a difference between talking about an actual problem and shouting a fake problem all over the Internet.

I tend to bottle stuff up too, the easiest way for me to talk about is is to make a journal or deviation on dA. I just find it hard to start telling people about my problems out of the blue xP

I've never intentionally self-harmed myself but more out of clumsiness. I only say this considering how clumsy I actually am with scars to prove it. My worst was when I tried to close a window and instead, the edge took a large chunk of flesh out.
:iconfacepalmplz:
For self-harming myself purposely, I could never do that. I always find a pro to a con or just sing happily till the sad stuff goes away.

XD I'm pretty lucky though, never need to go to hospital or anything (maybe because my mum is a nurse)
At first I didn't know what was happening but suddenly I had a throbbing pain around my hand and I could see red. It's not new to me though. In year 3, I was cutting someone crepe paper and noticed it getting wet and turning red. What I had done was that I had cut the tip of my little finger off. It hasn't got a scar since it happened so early in my life XD

My clumsiness mainly exists of falling over/running into all kinds of things. x') I even have that with things that have been on the same place all my life, it doesn't matter x')
