Was it normal?

When I was a child, I used to hit and bite myself a lot. Up until I was about 12/13 I used to do it. Also used to pick up things I knew would hurt like knives and hurt myself. Probably started when I began primary school so 4. I struggle with self harm now 😞 was it normal for a child to do that? I was always in a lot of trouble and was very disobedient too and refused to do my work or socialise with any other children. My mum just saw my behaviour as attention seeking. But i never felt like I was doing it for attention 😩
