  • Feeling like you need a physical release for your emotions
  • Not looking after your physical health (e.g. not eating, not taking care of wounds or injuries)
  • Feeling like your head is spinning with thoughts and there's no other option to make it stop
  • Feeling the need to escape or numb your feelings
  • Feeling drawn to sharp objects, or items you could harm yourself with
  • Feeling like you need an outlet to channel your painful emotions
  • Coming up with excuses and ways to explain self-inflicted injuries
  • Looking for a way to escape the emotional pain
