[female, age 18, began to self-injure at age 12, university student]
By Draco Malfoy,
I have. I had to get stitches in my wrist once. The medical people I dealt with were all very caring and gentle. I felt very safe with them, and they were condesending or making me feel little or stupid. There have been many other times when i have been sent to doctors for one thing, but then they noticed the wounds or scars. I had an already frightening and horrible hosptialization for an anxiety attack get the added stress of doctors bringing up the fresh burns on my wrist.
