They made it sound so simple. So easy to be rid of.
Those of us who deal with this issue every day know that none of these are true. I'm 29 and have been dealing with SI since I was nine. Two decades certainly deflates this author's theory that it is a "temporary fix for a teen's lack of control with their daily stress". I have so many issues with that statement.
What I did like about the article was they listed a great many forms of SI that alot of people don't usually recognize.
Normally the attention only goes to those who ***. All of these are debilitating means of SI'ing. SO I was glad to see the recognition going out.
I just wish that professionals, writers, and the general public would understand that not only teens suffer with this. Errrr...
