Is misery what I deserve
Am I just so void of love

No, it isn’t illegal to self harm. And most people who self harm do not end up on psych wards, and psych wards also don’t use straight jackets anymore.

it's not illegal. but in terms of medical folks and paramedics/emts in particular, self harm is still very much a grey area. if you turn up at a medical hospital or have emergency services come to you after having self harmed, they are unfortunately very likely to assume you tried to commit suicide, and treat you as such until you've had a psychiatrist evaluate you. they don't generally tend to understand the difference between self harm and suicide.

good providers can usually take the time to understand the difference, but in emergency situations most medical folks won't be qualified to do that. which sucks, but does make sense. it's better to see trained mental health professionals if you can.

so no it's not illegal. but it's also not exactly something worth condoning either.



Please do not give me virtual hugs unless you are only using the hug function on threads. Thanks.


You can't always keep it separate.

It is, however, illegal to carry most blades on your person, even if they are only for yourself.

Yes, that is a very good point. Blades are considered weapons and carrying a weapon can get you into a lot of trouble.

I'm going to close this thread and have removed several posts. The original question has been answered and further discussion was at risk of coming across as tip-sharing and encouraging people to find ways to 'bend' the law.



We may not see eye to eye, but we can respect each other's opinions and find the truth in them.
Perhaps in those honest conversations, instead of demonising each other,
we might see each other as imperfect humans, doing our best. ~ Jodi Picoult
