[female, age 19, began to SI at age 17]
By Draco Malfoy,
Yeah, one time. I was holding the knife, not really going to cut, just wanting to so bad… i was holding it on my leg so i could feel it (i seriously was not intending to actually cut though) and somehow i moved the wrong way without knowing it and accidentally stabbed myself in the leg with it. It wasn’t that bad, though. I only needed two stitches. The dr. was incredibly cool. He asked me what happened, and all i said was “i cut myself,” (knowing that he could see all the other scars, too - I have a lot of them), and he just stitched me up. But he talked to me like a normal human being. Not like i was stupid or flawed. And he didn’t make me feel uncomfortable about it. The nurse i saw before him when i was being assessed at the emergency room was really cold, though. He seemed to not care at all. But, overall it wasn’t horrible.
