Teach us to numb ourselves,
teach us not to feel.
The memory does not come easy.
It comes with screams that will not stop,
It comes with tears and terror,
It comes with shame that I felt this.
It comes with shame that I feel this.
My name is Gabrielle and I am twenty-eight years old. I began to self-injure at age fifteen -- so nearly thirteen years minus a two year period. This website is one about self-injury (self-harm), made to let self-injurers know that they are not alone and to help their friends and family learn more about self-injury and how it affects their loved one.
