Why do I want to get hurt?!

Question: Why do I want to get hurt.?
I have this obsession with getting hurt. I guess I want to be in pain maybe.? I daydream a lot about getting in an accident or some other way that I might get hurt. I try to get bruises by punching myself, mostly on my arms. It's not that I want to die, I just really want to get hurt. I'm not really sure what I'm asking, just wondering how messed up this is...Health Question & Answer

i wonder if it's an attention seeking thing.?
most of the time when we get hurt we get attention right.?

i am not sure why you are doing it, but i think it's pretty cool you are able to identify the problem and talk about it
ultimately i think you should talk to someone professional about this, they can probably help you re-frame it and you can deal with it a lot quicker

best of luck!Health Question & Answer

Become a boxer. At least then you can get hurt for other people's pleasure and get paid for it. You might even get to sustain brain damage (that is what causes boxers to get knocked out). People who are sicker than you seem to love watching that. Another thing you could do is become self-mutilating performance artist. See the web site below for tips. If you can't abide the idea of getting hurt for the pleasure of sick people, I'm afraid your only other alternative is to seek some serious mental therapy.Health Question & Answer

i don't think its that screwed up, because i mean when im bored or sometimes i just really like punching my hairs and stuff so your not alone. but it seems like your IN LOVE with pain. i would try to talk to someone o it doesn't get worse. i wouldn't want you getting hurt to far like running in front of a car or falling down your stairs. so i would talk to someone but don't worry its not that messed up i just wouldn't want you to get hurt

OH and i hate these people telling you how you are so messed up and a freak. because you arnt. everybody is different and they need to get over that. if they cant they can all run in front of cars like there telling you to do.

~sorry i wasn't much help ^^; Health Question & Answer

I'm sure that there's some sort of deeper meaning and reasoning behind how you're feeling. I suppose with many people who go through the same situations can usually trace these actions back to an issue with self-esteem and attention issues.
But don't just listen to what people online have to tell you. Go talk to someone who is a professional and they will have lots of valuable information to tell you.Health Question & Answer

mmm... Well if you bunch yourself for bruises, are they in places where others can see.? Maybe you just like the attention everyone gives you when they see them ...if they can see them. You might just get a rush from having everyone worry about you. Wanting attention is normal but causing damage to yourself isn't :-( Don't do it anymore. Maybe you should start seeing a psychiatrist. Health Question & Answer

Hi... i used to be the same way.

It came from frustration, feeling unaccepted, shoved aside and extremely low self-esteem.

Eventually, i did end up getting hurt very badly, not at my own volition. I was in an auto accident, and im here to tell you that seven months in the hospital with almost no visitors and total isolation changed my mind quickly.
