Yeah, while it is a certain form of punishment, it's a coping mechanism and some people genuinely need it in order to survive. The mind is capable of many, many things, some horrible and some people do have their minds control everything they do in life.

You say this like we/people don't already know. We all know how damaging it is for the people around us, we also know how damaging it is to ourselves. That doesn't mean it doesn't help though. If you have never experienced it, you don't really know what it's like. I'm not trying to have an argument with you, all I'm saying is this post is extremely patronising. I know you're trying to be helpful and nice, but you went about it in the extremely wrong way.
I should of known better. I should of stuck with "Glad everyone is recovering!" And left it at that. Pointing out that I wouldn't do it myself made my post make no sense. I want to apologize to everyone who DID read my post and took offense to it. Everyone makes mistakes and this is one I shouldn't of made.

Again, sorry.
