Yes. If I feel the need to self-injure, I first find a solitary place that I can lock. (e.g. my room, bathroom stall…) After locking myself in, I take out my razorblade that I keep in a small makeup container that I keep that the back of my makeup drawer. I take it out, pull up my sleeves or skirt, and cut. Afterwards I watch until theres enough blood, and then I blot it dry of blood. Then in order to feel as much pain as possible, I rub perfume or hairspray or some other strong, stinging liquid, into the fresh wounds. Then I cover the wounds with my clothes and go on with my life, or lay down.
