          ‘She’s Hacked Herself Up – It’s Carnage,’ Says Woman Whose Daughter Has Been Cutting For Years


          April 11, 2017

          Carol says it’s difficult seeing what her 22-year-old daughter, Emily, has done to herself. Emily, an abuse survivor who self-harms, estimates she’s cut herself nearly half a million times over the last nine years.

          “She’s hacked herself up – it’s carnage,” says Carol. “I can’t count the number of times we’ve gone to the emergency room to get her sewn, glued or stapled.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is unbelievable drama dividing your family?

          Carol is a nurse who says she often takes care of Emily’s non-life-threatening wounds at home because of the judgment she and her daughter have received when seeking medical attention for Emily’s self-inflicted injuries.

          Emily has a large online presence, using social media platforms to share her struggles, offer advice and interact with others who self-harm. Why does Carol say she thinks that Emily’s online activities are holding her back from focusing on her own recovery?
