          ‘I Don’t Want To Hurt Myself, But I Do,’ Says 21-Year-Old


          October 16, 2017

          At 21, Danielle says she’s been raging violently for years and claims she feels that she can’t control her anger. She admits to not only lashing out at others but also to injuring herself.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know a total train wreck?

          “I’ve cut my legs. I’ve burned myself with cigarettes. I’ve bitten myself. I’ve punched myself. I’ve even at one point, felt like I wanted to stab myself,” says the 21-year-old.

          She also says she once attempted to gouge her own eyes.

          “I don’t want to hurt myself, but I do,” she says. “My body just does it, and if anyone comes near me to try to help me, I do it more.”

          Why does Danielle say she resorts to hurting herself? Tune in Monday for part-one of this two-part Dr. Phil.
