Patient :Hi my name is Tara, I am 18 and have previously suffered from severe depression and self harm. I was diagnosed with depression when I was 13 and also have started cutting at that age. I haven't cut since I was 16 and haven't been depressed since last year. But recently I have been getting sudden urges to hurt myself not because I'm sad but just to feel something. This numbness starts in my stomach and takes over my body and I have the urge to feel pain and only pain. I don't know what's wrong with me.
