By Draco Malfoy,
Depressed. I almost killed myself in ‘95 and now if those feelings come back for a moment I hurt myself. I generally enjoy doing it, I hate my body and wish I could scar it up, so I almost never have done as much as I would have liked but when I stop I no longer feel depressed. It is relaxing and fun. When I punch myself I laugh.
