[female, age 20, began to SI at age 17]
By Draco Malfoy,
I can’t decide if it’s a good thing to get SI out into the open or not. If it wasn’t for that one magazine article, SI probably wouldn’t have occurred to me. I would be scar-free today. Also, I don’t want it to become like depression, how it’s almost like it’s in vogue. It’s a tricky subject, like suicide. Only with SI, no one else can prevent it, or stop it, except for the one who’s doing it, so what do we need awareness for? Internet sites like this are good, so people who actually SI can seek out information for themselves, and frustrated kids won’t start cutting themselves and getting all infected to get attention.
