I never got help and was very luck that as I got older I was able to handle many of my
issues on my own
. Not everyone is so lucky, though - my
little cousin is in her second stint in a psychiatric hospital this year and has recently been moved to a long-term facility for at least a year. Again, I don't want to panic you, but only emphasize that your daughter's self-harm could be the first indication of a much deeper problem.
