Is there a word that means "hurting oneself by helping other

See Frank Muir's anecdote about his trying to introduce a new word (privy) for WC resulting only in several people being reported as asking "Where's the Frank Muir?"

new word: congloberate

A suggested new word I heard today is "congloberate" used to describe a large group of people, specifically (in the context I heard it)to describe the chaotic togetherness in separateness of a large group of teenage boys waiting for an unspecified time to be given (further) instructions.
Any thoughts?
