By Draco Malfoy,
no, but my friend has. it really freaked me out…im not sure why though. my mom saw my scars when i first did it. i had two small cuts on my left wrist and i lied about it, but she wound up figuring it out. my parents tried talking to me about it, but it just made it worse. i also started listening to heavy metal and wearing a lot of black during that time, so they lectured me about that. at first they thought it was their fault, then they thought i was doing it to be in some sort of cult or w/e, which really pissed me off. they also thought one of my best friends “made” me do it becuase he made me present for my birthday and it had a lot of black and red that looked like “blood”. I stopped for a month becuase my mom threatened to take me to a mental hospital if i did it again, but i couldnt stand it anymore and started doing it again anyways. its been 3 months since then and they have no idea.
