I understand at least how it works for several individuals I know. If you want to talk about it I'm glad to listen.

I have a very strange ambivalence about the self-injury awareness in particular because it's not clear (not just to me--not clear to researchers in general) whether self-injury is on the rise in recent years or merely openness about self-injury. If it's a rise in openness that's nothing but good. If self-injury is on the rise since it got media attention then that's maybe problematic. Only "maybe" because it *is* a coping strategy, so maybe it's replacing more self-destructive behaviors, you know?

Whee. Ambivalence, as I say.
