I have many issues but i think the worst is incontinence due to self harm. well, really all my issues are each as bad and the list shown here is only partial. i seem to be untreatable but i keep trying to get somewhere. i mainly need support via connection with other people who know that even though my issues may be extreme and are kind of mysterious, i am hoping to stop the damage and heal finally.

Why not start by accommodateing your incontinence as best you can whilst exploring the possibility of treating the causes with a view to reversing them?

Thanks for your reply. I'm going to post some more specific issues about me soon about my ongoing treatment and ever present issues that I still don't understand. I am afraid to say the things I have to, but I feel speaking up about this is the only course of action I can take. Problem is people can be judgemental before they understand the full story. I don't even understand the full story but can tell much about it anyway. Thanks again for replying.

Don't be afraid of opening up. That is the first step to making progress. I don't think anyone will be judgemental; if anyone is, ignore them.

Here you can open up, there has been nobody here that I'm aware of that is judgemental. I've heard a lot of tuff stories on here and not once was anyone judgemental about it. Good luck and wish you the best.

Thanks LAG, I'm gunna post some more specifics about my self harm issues because that is what has brought about my incontinence but self harm seems to have me attacking many aspects of me from things like body waste to social things and lately my sexuality. I just don't understand what is going on and why and also at this point in my life. I am presently received professional mental help but need friendly support about my sexuality which is clearly directly linked to my incontinence issues. I think this situation is kind of far removed from the usual incontinence talk but I definitely need support for this. I'm hoping I can find it here. Thanks.
