[female, age 24, began to SI at age 16 1/2]
By Draco Malfoy,
I once cut in class and someone came in, but I made sure that I would be able to hide it, so she didn’t notice. Sometimes when I can’t stand the inner pressure I scratch myself to the point of bleeding, but no one notices because I do it very quickly and pretend that I’m just scratching an itch or something. I don’t scratch where people can see. But SI‘ing in front of people who can see and are aware of what I’m doing, no, I haven’t done that, I don’t think I can. I was caught once by my mother. I thought I had manage to clean all the blood before she got there (it was in the middle of the night, didn’t expect her to wake up) but she said she could smell it. One time I had to tell my parents because I lost a lot of blood and felt like I was going to pass out, and I needed someone to take me to the ER.
