Day 11: Strangest place (school, park, etc) you’ve ever injured yourself?
I’ve bee dreading this question and I’ve had a drink so I think I can answer it now. I do not think I have ever self injured anywhere that I would consider strange but I have self harmed during times that were probably inappropriate.
It was grade 11, my party days. I was pretty drunk so I just have brief flashes of what happened. I locked myself in my friends bathroom and the next thing I know my wrist is bleeding. My friend is knocking on the door and I’m crying. Then I remember a guy I went to high school with had my wrist raised above my head and was applying pressure with toilet paper. That’s all I remember until the next day.
Oddly enough that guy went on to study self harm in university and beyond.
So, that was the worst moment for me. Not because I self harmed but because it was so public.
