    I've Been Cutting Myself On and Off Since I Was Sixteen

    When my mother died I was really depressed, to say the least. I remember I was doing a project in Art where we had to do a sculpture, and I was using pieces of broken mirror in mine. One day, about a week after she died, something compelled me to take a piece of broken mirror...
