I'm 28 years old and have been causing self-injury for over 15 years now. I only came to the realization that I have a problem about a month ago. I've been in therapy this whole time and never realized something was wrong. My way of hurting myself has been through burning myself and beating myself with a hammer. The last time I did this, the police got involved. That's when I decided to tell my coucellor the truth about what had happened. Besides her, only one other person knows what is going on in my life. I don't know how to tell my parents. Any ideas? I'm also a recovering drug addict. I used drugs to hide the pain, and now that I've been clean for a year, the pain is coming back in such force. This year alone (2007) I've had 3 concussions, a broken cheek bone, bruises and a busted arm. I have no idea how to go about this. I'm looking for friends who know how to live life with this problem. Any and all suggestions are welcome!
