I'm not sure I believe it. I used to obsess that I had a mental illness of some kind, till I went to therapy. I still think about hurting myself, but I used to be a cutter and I know that can be addictive, so that doesn't mean I have pure-o. If I do, then I'll take steps to overcome it, of course, as I'm sure many of the members here have, but I don't think I have it. Do you?
