Hello! I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but I have a question about self-injury. I read some posts on the "advice" tab of RYL, but couldn't find anything about all the types of SI.
Ever since I was little, I used to eat my nails, as a way to cope and relax. I still do it nowadays, when I'm feeling anxious or impatient I eat my nails until they are almost bleeding. This is something I've been trying to stop for a while, but this isn't what I'm here about.
Is eating my nails a type of self-injury? or is it simply considered something I do because I'm anxious?
