[female, age 28, possibly began to SI at age 13]
By Draco Malfoy,
There are many reasons why I do it. I do it to focus my attention from emotional pain to physical pain (it’s easier to deal with). I do it because I’m angry, hate myself, feel like I need to punish myself, are stressed out, to bring on a dissociative episode or end one. Sometimes I do it just to prove to myself that I’m still real.
