I have mild bipolar , OCD , Paranoia Personality Disorder , ADD , Epilepsy (Absence seizures) and anxiety.
I have been self injuring for 3 years now and I'm dealing with bulimia.
I have been hospitalized for both , and it hasn't worked.
Nothing works , nothing makes me feel better besides my two comfortw (bulimia and self injury)
I'm not fond of counsellers or therapists ,
is there any way I would be able to stop both without any mental help?
(i'm not taking medacation for anything though , cause I always puke when I take pills)
You're going to find out that nothing is going to make you feel as good as self-injury or other self-destructive behaviors such as bulimia. Once you let go of this idea and get comfortable with the idea you're going to *be* uncomfortable then starts the difficult part.
However, it's only the start. I personally have been unable to entirely let go of self-injury and it's been about twelve years aside from two where I quit aside from one instance. There are no guarantees.
I've found that people who have a support system fare better. Groups of friends who are stable enough to offer support.
