I'd agree with that. Even after I'd ended up in Casualty, both for cutting thru arteries in my arms and for overdosing on painkillers, I refused to believe that what I was doing was wrong. I felt that I'd found a perfectly good way to express my pain, and that I didn't need any help. It was only after I reached a crisis point that I cracked and told my parents. It wasn't anything specific at all; one day I just thought, "I can't go on like this."
