By Draco Malfoy,
Part of me wants to stop, and part of me doesn’t. The part that does is the logical part, the part that reminds me that I have a career to worry about, and friends and family I don’t want to injure. The part that doesn’t want to stop is that part that doesn’t know how else to cope. It’s also the part that reminds me that several members of my family – on my father’s side, which I take after in almost every way – have committed suicide or overdosed on drugs because they didn’t know how to cope. My way of coping may seem strange and repulsive to other people, but at least I’m not going so far as killing myself.
