By Draco Malfoy,
I got drunk once and tried - unsuccessfully - to cut my arm with scissors in front of my roommate. She took the scissors and told me that I didn’t want to do that. Other than that, never in front of anyone. My husband, however, caught me one night after a fight. I went in the bathroom and cut for what seemed like forever. I opened the door and he was standing there, glaring at me. He took my box (I used to keep it all in a box) and threw it off the balcony. It landed in the neighbors yard - God knows what they thought, or did with it. My husband was really upset, and tried to grab my arms, and I screamed DON’T TOUCH ME. I passed out in bed a few minutes later.
