[female, age 16, began to SI at age 11]
By Draco Malfoy,
There’s lots of reasons. It gives me control, and when I cut I feel like because I can handle that pain, I can handle my emotional pain. I feel like I need a reason or an excuse to feel the emotional pain that I do, and having scars I gave myself gives me a reason for my irrational depression. I like the way it feels, when the razor slices open my skin… and I just have this irrational desire to see my own blood.
