“Why’d you do that?” Or, “How could you do that?” Questions we get asked all the time if people see our scars, or cuts, or markings of any sort, and they’ve figured out the truth. So, what do you tell them? Spill the beans? Or just make up some story, “Oh, um, long story, and you would only get it if you’ve done this” kind of thing?
I just tell people that I’m overwhelmed, cover myself, and walk away.
But, how are you supposed to deal with that? I mean, no one really would understand unless they’ve self-injured.
