Just like in the title, but I will go more in depth. Lately I have been causing allot of self harm, and it is at night when I am asleep. I say that because I do not remember doing it, and I find lots of sores all over. I have quite a storied history of this, and keeping my nails short does seem to impact the severity of the cuts/gouges, but it does not stop it. I still mutilate my body involuntarily, but unless I take my shirt off no one knows.
It's mentally pain full, and it hurts worse than the physical pain sometimes. It's a pain full thing to keep to myself, and i'm at the point of wanting to take the necessary measures to insure I am safe. I don't have the resources to see a professional about this, and even if I did. I don't think they would do much about it. To be transparent I have wanted padded mitts when not actively scratching at night, but now I see them as A must have.
I am very interest in a babyish padded mitt, but all the common ones I have seen. To me they do not say how much padding is in it, or how well it is made so it can last gets called into question. I'm teetering on either in the middle of the road thickness padding, or something that is not so thin that it defeats the purpose. Sweating, and keeping my hands dry could be a issue, but I might have to try it to see. I never had such an item before!
