Feeling like your self harm is not enough to be considered as one happens a lot if you don't have visible scars. It's very frustrating and gives you lot of mixed feelings. I'm sorry if you feel like no one pays real attention to what's going on, but trust me, it is a self harm, even if you can't see it too weel. I hope you'll find someone you trust to talk about it. We're here as well :)
any action intended to willfully cause yourself pain or suffering does qualify, legitimately, as an act of self- harm. It does not have to be physical. It does not have to leave marks, temporary or otherwise. It does qualify.
