Men and self harm

Both men and women self-harm though it is assumed that women are more likely to do so. On the other hand, women may just be more willing to tell their doctor about it so we don't really know how the genders stack up in this regard. Self-harm involves cutting, burning and other such activities. In all probability people self-harm because the pain they inflict on themselves blocks their emotional pain. iselfharm is a blog by an Irishman who says he began self-harming as a seven year old boy. He maintained the blog for about a year and a half but, though he has stopped adding new material, it's still useful to anybody affected by self harm.....
