[female, age 17, began to SI at age 13]
By Draco Malfoy,
It depends on how intense I’m feeling. Sometimes I will be so “out of it” that I can do virtually any kind of harm to myself and I wont feel it, and other times I will be upset and feel the need to cut, but can’t make more than scratches because of the pain and anxiety. When I don’t bleed as much as I need to to feel “normal” again, I get extremely frustrated and feel even more helpless than before. It’s the single most worst feeling.
