  • Scratching, pinching, hitting yourself
  • Feeling drawn to sharp objects, or items you could harm yourself with
  • Feeling reckless, not caring whether you get hurt
  • Feeling like normal ways of coping don't work for you – the pain is a last resort
  • Feeling the need to escape or numb your feelings

  • Avoiding people you care about so they don't find out
