Good Morning. I could throw out one idea re your enjoying being sick..........if your down and sick, you don't have to face your problems or go out into the world.
You posted "I'll admit that I'm a bit of a masochist and there are times I like pain". May I suggest that you make an appointment with your personal physician who will help you find a good mental health practioner.
I am sorry you are having this issue but we are not professionals, we are here to support and care for each other.

I had to edit your post for graphic descriptions and posting outside the rules.
Discussions of suicide or self-harm that are deemed negative and therefore potentially injurious to others are also not permitted.
Thank you for your understanding.Kitt

Have you thought of finding a therapist that deals with people that enjoy pain? Perhaps the many therapists you have seen did not have the background needed to help you.
I am sorry about the edit but it had graphic comments in it and as Karen has posted people that have no concept of how to hurt themselves may pick up new info if we leave dicussions of harm on the board.
Karen has offered to talk with you through email, you may want to email her.
I did delete the post when I edited but it was a descirption of your injuries and how you received them. Hope that jars you memory.
Here is a link to a site you may find very helpful. www.mayoclinic.com/health/self-injury/DS00775/DSECTION=causes
Take care and keep talking to us. Great advice Erik.
May you find peace and happiness,
I never saw the post but I think it has been removed so let's move on and not refer to it anymore.
The next time I edit a post I will send you the portion removed. I can't always do that as I don't have everyones email but in this case I should have. Forgive me for the oversite. Boards have been very busy.

Of course you did not have your post deleted by a mod, I knew that and so did Karen. I assume you decided to retrieve you post per you own reasons. No explanation necessary.
