[female, age 19, began to SI at age 15]
By Draco Malfoy,
My boyfriend is the only one who knows. I don’t think he totally understands, but he’s supportive. He confessed that he had a serious problems with controlling his aggression. He’d beat one of his ex-girlfriends and was terrified to tell me. He’s never done anything to me because he’s worked very hard to learn to deal with his anger, but he was afraid I’d hate him for it. After he’d told me all of this, I felt like we were such similar creatures. The only difference was that I took it out on myself. That’s when I showed him the scars on my arms.
