The book points out that the wish to self-injure is a thought, not a feeling and that self-injury is a behavior that has been distracting the person from difficult feelings, and a behavior that can be changed. I am sorry that you are feeling angry, sad, lonely - but those feelings can be addressed without self-injury.
The earlier you get help, the better and remember, you are not alone! Good luck!
