By Draco Malfoy,
Yes, I lost it one night and started beating on myself in front of a close friend. He had never seen this side of me and his immediate reaction was to wrap his strong arms around me and hold me tightly until my rage finally let go. Although I realized this friend must have thought I had gone crazy while I was struggling to break free of his holding me, I still could not stop myself, until I was too tired to continue struggling. I was sitting on the side of my bed at the time I started beating myself, and my dear friend, literally used his legs and arms to try to pin me to the bed so I could not hurt myself. The tighter he held me, the fiercer I fought back to try to hurt myself!!!!!!!!!
