Hi, I've been self harming a certain way for quite a while now, it was a dangerous method and I was, naturally, advised to stop. I have now stopped doing this, apart from the occassional slip, but instead of just stopping, I've changed to something else. This is also a dangerous and life threatening method. I now od as some might know from my post last night. I've been having DBT since end May/June which prioritise stopping self harming and suicidal thoughts. Have to admit I have cut down a lot since starting this therapy. Now though, it just dawned on me, I've been restricting my daily food intake since around this time. It's now reached a point I only eat one meal a day, in the evenings, and not much then as my stomach has shrunk. What I'd like to know is, could this be my new form of self harm? Have I changed from od'ing to starving myself?
