[female, age 19, began to SI at age 17]
By Draco Malfoy,
Yeah, because it’s not normal… people look at me and see a sick person, therapists a lot of times will try to hospitalize for it (which doesn’t help) and basically it’s not accepted in society. I want to be healthy, able to live a normal life, and i can’t do that when i’m cutting. Or when i’m thinking about it all the time. And i don’t want my little brother or sister to see me doing it and think it’s ok. I don’t want them to start cause it’s such a hard thing to deal with. I just don’t want to know that i’ve influenced them to harm themselves.
