The Dangers of Bipolar Self Inflicted Injuries

Whatever the method of attempt at bipolar disorder self injury, there is seriousness attached to it. People who have attempted suicide in the past are 40 times more likely to commit suicide than those who never have attempted it before.

If a person begins to make final arrangements, or to set his or her affairs in order for no particular reason, suicide may be on his or her mind. It could be as simple as giving away possessions, or as complex as making financial arrangements. It should be determined whether or not that person is in danger of bipolar disorder self injury if this is suddenly seen in a bipolar individual.

More women than men attempt suicide, but 80 percent of the deaths by suicide are by males. Bipolar disorder self injury, then, is a distinct and growing problem.

It is difficult enough dealing with the affective, social, legal, and physical consequences of the disease. Self harm and suicide make attention to bipolar disorder self injury most necessary.

One form of bipolar disorder self injury that is coming most recently into the public consciousness is self mutilation, or “cutting”. Suicide, of course, is the most extreme form of bipolar disorder self injury. At this stage there is concern of bipolar disorder self injury, but the ideas are just at a simmer.

When a person begins to make plans, the danger of bipolar disorder self injury becomes more imminent. If this is suddenly seen in a bipolar individual, it should be determined whether or not that person is in danger of bipolar disorder self injury.
