Compulsive behaviour, self harm and paranoia
You probably get alot of people on here asking questions like this, I just dont know where to begin. I have held off seeking medical help for about 10 years, my mum used to tell me I was crazy which only put me off further.
When I was younger (11-15) I was manic, violent, self harming with low self esteem.
I have since got a handle on things but im only bottling everything up, I still pick my thumbs and feet untill they bleed, bite my mouth, eating any skin that results, picking and eating scabs.
I am usually calm but when I tip over the edge I get extremely violent, but always towards myself, last year I broke my hand in two places punching walls one night.
I am paranoid, and have horrible and irrational thoughts that to me are so out of character.
I have a child on the way and need to get a grip on this. Where do I start? And what is wrong with me?
Sorry this is a fairly long post, thankyou in advance for any answers/advice
