[female, age 14, began to SI at age 11]
By Draco Malfoy,
When pain in my life becomes too much and I feel so alone, all I want is some form of release. I crave the idea of pain being able to be taken away from my emotional state, even if it means physical pain. By cutting myself the physical pain overrides the emotional pain and I don’t have to deal with my family, my friends, the stress of having to be all around perfect, straight A girl. It’s something for me, alone.
