[female, age 16, began to SI at age 11]
By Draco Malfoy,
No, it’s a very private thing. I think if someone else was there I’d get self-conscious and wimp out. I’ve never even been close to being caught- from the beginning I’ve been very careful to make sure there’s no chance anyone could see me and decide to lock me away. I know that slicing myself open is not a socially acceptable past-time, and it would freak out anyone who saw me. I don’t want to do that to people I like, and I don’t trust the people I don’t like to not do something drastic.
