By Draco Malfoy,
When I first started SIB I felt pain but it didn’t hurt. Some of my cuts were very deep. I’m not sure if I could have done this if it had really hurt. I have always been aware of what I am doing, but I just feel emotionally numb when I am cutting. Nowadays the sensation of pain is much greater, so I can’t cut so deeply.
