Long sleeves and cosmetics. Maybe...... .I won't tell you to stop, but I will tell you I am sorry you have the need to do that. You were born for better reasons than to hurt yourself. You have many people who love you .... Wish you could realize that. If you want to stop, you need to seek professional help. God bless
Many people who self-harm do it in places that other people can see because they actually want to connect with other people so they don't feel so disconnected and lonely. If you have marks that can be covered with clothing, do so. If your marks are somewhere tough to hide, there are make-up products for people with bad scars, burns, birthmarks, etc. One such product is DermaBlend, J C Penney used to carry it in the make-up department. Check at the make-up departments at better department stores, and check beauty supply stores like Sally Beauty.
About self-harm... When someone asks you why you do it, it can be very easy to give the routine answers "so I can feel something, anything" or "so I know I 'm real and I exist". Give it a little more effort and think about what makes you stop feeling or what makes you question if you really exist. Those are the real issues to look at, the self-harm is just a symptom. In time you'll learn you really do own your own life and your own body and have the power to live a life that makes you feel satisfied. I wish you the best of luck.
I think make up or bandages or long sleeves or just don't hurt ur self I don't know.i used to cut my self and then I stopped cause a girl saw me do it in school.the girl told the principal and the principal asked me "Why?" I couldnt answer but I told her I was getting bullied she started crying because she felt bad for me.the principal told my mom and my mom forced me to go to a therapist.the bully's got suspended but beat me up after that.i cry every day but I see my principal everyday after class and I talk with her.shes like a second mom to me now .my scars got infected and I went to a hospital the doctors said I lost a lot of blood from the scars I started getting very weak but I had my mom and my principal besides me and I realized someone does love me.
