[female, age 23, began to SI in 6th grade]
By Draco Malfoy,
I have told out of guilt (my supervisors) and out of need to have someone who understands. I think sometimes I am also testing my friendships…I tend to believe that people who I care about end up leaving me. So I think sometimes I assume that this SI thing I do will so disgust, revolt, scare, etc. them that they will also leave me. So I guess I am trying to push them away before they can leave ME.
