I didn't want to stop
I didn’t want to stop SI. My mom noticed my cuts and scars and called me out on my SI. She sent me to therapy once a week, but it did nothing. I cut again, and got caught again. She just sent me to more therapy. Still did nothing. The last time she caught my cuts again she threatened to send me away. That’s when i stopped, because i didn’t know where she was gonna send me but i knew i didn’t want to leave. I still SI occasionally, but i am way more secretive about it.
