[female, age 16, began to SI at age 13]
By Draco Malfoy,
I don’t feel okay about myself. I don’t feel okay about the way I interact with others. I feel ugly and disgusting and awkward and anoying. I don’t know what I am. I can’t stand myself. I hate waking up and not being able to be something different than I am. I feel guilty for most everything in my life. I always find a way to screw up. It releases the guilt a little. It helps me to deal with emotions. It helps me to make them real. To express them. I feel I’m better after releasing them.
