i know how it feels!! actually I have used to it, I don’t care what others say about it! if you wana hide it, wear a band on those cuts which will totally hide them!! this is what I used to do!! or you can buy some cream (which will be bit expensive)!!

Hey there.. I’m a 15 year old male and I self harm and cut. I’m attempting to stop because my girlfriend really hates the fact. But its hard. I’ve been cutting since 6th grade. Its not easy to stop. Suggestions will be helpful.. but I have recently cut again and I need help hiding it. I dont have much options and wearing my sweatshirt all the time is horrid. Everytime I cut its 50+ cuts everytime up my left arm. How can I hide it? Please help. Scars I can deal with but I cant handle walking around with these fresh cuts up my arm. I cant do this to my girlfriend, she needs me. What are the best options to cover up these cuts? I want to hide them from any one. Any suggestions are helpful. Please.. please…
-with love, Payton♥

I’m 14  and in rotc and when we were dressing into  pt (pe) clothes my flight commander saw  all my cuts on my wrist ( cutting  for 5 months) i stopped cutting for a while and I guess  he told my girlfriend  who means the  world to me that I started again. I started because my girlfriend is moving on my birthday (26) and basically she came into class crying and  wouldnt even talk to me except to tell me that she hated me.so when I got home I cut my wrists until I felt dizzy. I really need some  help I’m  just so lost .

She is obviously not the one then. Try to contact her nd if she doesn’t come around move on with your life.

I started cutting 2 weeks ago today and they started off small… like cat scratches. didn’t bleed at first but now they bleed a lot! They’re all on my left arm and deep, going from my elbow to just over half way down my fore arm! I love the pain and do it for pain and relief… my friends desperately want me to stop but I want to keep going. I don’t really see it as a problem myself… My parents have no idea and no adults know about it. They just think I’m a bit depressed and “not myself”,  and I want to keep it that way! What I’m really asking is, what should I do? I have depression, anorexia, SERIOUS self confidence issues and I cut/cry myself to sleep most nights. I have 400 cuts all cris crossing in a deep red pattern on my arm! I like them and they make me feel alive! I’m emo and look older for my age. I have people to talk to but I’m lying to them. Saying I’m stopping when really I’m getting worse! Should I stop or keep going? I’ll already have the scars so why not keep going? I’m losing myself and peer pressure and life issues are driving me mad (figure of speech)… does anyone have advice? I’ve been fighting alone for a long long time… Thank you

PS: Sorry about the length of this haha but I really couldn’t summaries this :)

Wow, 11’s young! I use sharpeners too ^-^ I’m emo and have been cutting for 2 weeks. I cry a lot and a bunch of other crap haha My cuts are deep but not enough blood to say, run down my arm. but enough to create scars and that.  It’s nice to know we’re not alone… Its easy to forget when you feel death is the answer….

Hey Hayley ) I’m Amy (13)

I started cutting 2 weeks ago and I’m bad. I use pencil sharpers and I go deep now. I only found this a minute ago and I think it may help you stop ^-^ It’s called the butterfly effect. You draw a butterfly on your arm and name it after a loved one. If you cut before its faded and gone you’ve killed it and if you don’t cut until it’s faded then it lives ^-^ No scrubbing or wiping it off!! You can do a lot of butterflies if you want, and name all of them! Mine is Ryan and I will do another, called Hayley ^-^ You can get a friend to draw a butterfly on your arm too! These butterflies are EXTRA special!!! I find this method beautiful and effective :3 I hope you do too! 

Keep smiling xx

Hi, I’m 14 and I have recently started cutting myself to relieve emotional pain. I now have a total of 7 on my wrist. I’m writing this because I know how some of you feel and am here if anyone needs to talk.

I started cutting probably like 2 months ago or something like that, my sister is the main reason, calling me fat retarded ugly and heaps of other stuff, she has been calling me them for years like since I was around 5 I do have friends and one also cuts, the others are nice but can sometimes get on my nerves and I have a boyfriend, I know what you r thinking ’ why does she cut if she has a boyfriend?’ Well we have been going out for like a week and he doesn’t know right and I feel like really really bad because there are way prettier girls that he could have, but he chooses me, the girl that likes video games and pokemon, who likes gun games and is suicidal, he is like the same as me and that is why I really like him but I feel like I’m holding him back sort of, like he could have someone way better and prettier and skinnier than me but he can’t because I’m going out with him. I have tried suicide but failed, I can’t hide my scars, I’ve tried but you can see them, I have played them off as scratches from a tree but some people question me about them, I think that I’m fat but everyone says that I’m really skinny but I don’t think so, nothing can convince me that I’m skinny so yeah, I really really hate myself

I’m the same ) I’m just 13… I think I’m fat and me and my bf have been dating almost 2 months now… he knows that I self harm and everyone is trying to get me to stop… I wont listen but help is the best option to get better! Only problem is, I don’t want to get better. My brother makes me feel like shit too but he is 2 years younger and I can’t fight back! I’m told I look anorexic and my weakling friend can lift me with one arm… Literally!! I can’t bear to look at the scales because I think I’m really fat… I refuse any form of help and as a result I am losing most of my friends / People are telling me that I’m just attention seeking and that makes me feel worse! My cuts are bad. Arm has healed but my ankles are a mess! Criss crossing all over inner ankles just around where my socks go… I hate myself a lot but just know, you’re not alone! There are always people you can talk to… and even more that will love to listen. Its easy to forget! so chin up x

It gets so annoying… My ‘friends’ say they understand… Some cut but they’re only tiny scratches and theres about 5 max… I have HUNDREDS!! Gone onto ankles and hips because I’ve run out of room! I can’t wear white in fear of the blood that already floods my clothes will stain and I’ll get laughed at! Most know… coz of PE and stuff… I refuse any form of councilling and help and I just want to be left alone! Nobody will lave me tho :(

I started cutting the summer I turned 11. I just hid it with foundation, because they were scratches, but now they are bloody and deep. My parents have no idea. If they knew, it would break them. My school found a picture of a noose on one of my papers, so I got sent to the guidance consoler. I lied. My friend pulls her hair out, too. I have depression, but my parents don’t know. My worst fear is someone finding out. I recently cut my hair, too. There was no more skin. There is nothing  worse than being  emo, nerd, and depressed. How do I hide everything?

I feel like a bitch saying this, and some people might disagree. Cut on your thighs (It annoying, I know) But it hides them (If you wear trousers or knee length shorts) And for the cuts you need to hide, wear some long arm warmers, or as I do, lay your jacket all over that one arm. Or cross your arms if its only on the inside.

I’m fifteen, and in 6th grade i started cutting. they were just meer scratches and i told my parents that id “didnt want to bed forgotten” because i was switching schools. this couldnt be further from the truth. anywho, i stopped, until last month. The thought was always in the back of my mind, but i had somehow worked around it, but not anymore, i have at least 50 cuts on my ankles, blood and all. my weapon of choice is my mom’s nice fabric sheers. Im starting PE next month, and idk if ill be able to hide the scarring and fresh cuts. ive been wearing high socks to hide  them, but i cant really wear those to PE every day…. advice? btw i also cut on my hid, but im not really worried about people seeing that.

If you wear a one piece all of your problems go away. You can say you are being sensitive to your image now or just say this one piece looks really cute or even say you want to be more conservative about your body. Hope this helps

God doesn’t hate you cuz you cut. If anything, his heart breaks that you are in pain. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

I need to cut, am getting help but in the mean time, I need a place I can cut where my husband won’t notice if we are intimate.  Obviously I don’t feel much like being intimate when I’m feeling this way but that’s not his fault. For those times we are intimate, can anyone tell me places they’ve used that are inconspicuous or easy to explain away?

after i cut, i’ll wear a long sleeve shirt until they all seem visibly gone, like they start scarring of they’re in the scab session, if you get to that point i sometimes just go straight to scarring i don’t really know. but when they get to that point and it’s summer or you live in florida (like me) and it’s scabbing or scaring then just put a bit of powder or foundation (or both even) and try to stop, it’s a bad habit and i’m currently trying to stop but it’s really really tempting. good luck chap ) xo

hey… when I cut it doesn’t bleed much either, it takes me atleast 5 minutes to break through my skin and make it bleed even a little bit. My older sister by two years is incredibley worried about me because about a week ago she got me to tell her honestly that I feel like I’ve lost my sanity. She looks at me very carefully and I’m worried that she’ll notice that I cut. I haven’t been able to break through my skin untill today when I was incredibly determined. I don’t even know why I cut. I have the awesomest family ever. PS. I’m 12. I know, I’m to young. But I finally made myself bleed and now, if my sister sees, IDK what she’ll do.

I know where you are coming from… I’m 12 too I have a great family but it sucks, and I just scored a 97 on a depression test. I really don’t want my parents, or anyone for that matter, to pity me. I sucks because I also have anxiety. But my brother is the one who is overprotective of me, he tried to kill himself. I don’t want to die I just need an escape because, I am worthless, ugly, fat, depressed, tired, alone,stupid, crazy, and that’s not even the tip of the iceberg. I just want all of my depression, and anxiety to be gone.
