Editor's Note: This story includes accounts of self-harm and attempted suicide.
On a late afternoon in September 2015, a 27-year-old transgender inmate named Adree Edmo wrote a note in her cinder block prison cell at the Idaho State Correctional Institution.
She insisted that what she was about to do was not an attempt at suicide.
The note read, "I do not want to die, but I am a woman, and women do not have these."
Edmo then attempted to castrate herself.
Edmo didn't succeed, but she would go on to try again.
