I've looked threw all of the forums, the communitys, and the ask the doctor pages. Specificly looking for one thing. I searched, yet I could not find it. 75% of Americans have gone threw it. Yet on a well known health site it is not even mentioned. It contributes to millions of deaths. Yet everyone chooses to ignore it. It is my sickness that I am struggling to control, and if it is not found, should I decide knowone cares? This condition is offten know as SELF INJURY, SELF ABUSE, or SELF MUTILATION! I am 14, yet this condition has taken almost 3 of those precious years from me. I am recovering, although at a slow pace, it is more then I could've dreamed of. Please help me raise awareness to this cause, because without it, innocent lives are taken hourly. So many of you decide that this does not concern you, because you have never been aware of anyone with this condition. Think of your children, granchildren, and all else that are to come. There is a 3/4 chance that they themselves will be effected by self injury and an even higher chance that someone they care about will have to go threw this pain. Please if anyone knows a way to bring awareness to the board of this site, please help me contact them.

Hi Gianna -

I wanted to let you know that we do have several threads on this topic.  Since you are 14, I've found some in the Teen Health Communities, but also have some from Depression.

Hi!    I love your name!  Also, you might take a peak in the Borderline Personality Forum.  There are usually quite a few posts there on this subject.   Good luck!
