[female, age 43, began to SI at age 10]
By Draco Malfoy,
Sadly I believe it stems from the 36 years of emotional and physical abuse I endured at the hands of my hard core alcoholic Mother. As I have told my closest friends, that as terrible as the physical abuse was that she did to me, I could count on it to temporarily stop once in a while. But my deepest ‘scars’ are from the hideous emotional abuse I endured from her constant verbal assaults upon me.
