It’s a bargain you make with yourself, okay? An escape hatch, maybe today I’ll try drinking see if that makes me feel better. Then drugs. More drugs. Cutting yourself. You’re scared, so you make a deal to make yourself feel safer. And if it doesn’t stop next week, next month then you’re going to do something to make it stop. And the next month comes and the thought of waking up another day and feeling as badly as you did the day before is worse than the unknown. So you decide to jump. Seems simple, clean, elegant.

You (Caroline Kepnes)
By Draco Malfoy
When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.
There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.
As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.
Joe self-harms a little more than halfway through:
Covering scars on holiday.
Hi, I'm new to this site and wondering if anyone can help me.
I have scars on the top of my thigh from self-harming a couple of years ago and I'm going on holiday at the end of July. I'll have to be able to wear my bikini but I don't want my scars exposed, has anyone got any tips on how to reduce/cover them? I've tried using normal concealer and make-up and it cover the whiteness but the scars are a little bit raised so they're still visible in the light. I've been using bio-oil for about a month and have seen no difference in them. I've now bought a silicone gel sheet and have been using it a little under a week so it's too early to tell if it's making a difference.
I don't mind spending money covering them up, I've read about vichy dermablend, does anyone know if this will cover them completely/hide the fact that they're raised scars?
Worst case scenario I can buy a sarong or put shorts on over my bikini but ideally I want to be able to cover them! If anyone has any tips or advise it would be greatly recieved!

Dehydration & cutting
Im someone who really doesnt drink water as often as i should (especially with as many energy drinks as i down to make it through a graveyard shift) and it leaves me dehydrated more often than not. Id stopped cutting for a while but now that i am again ive noticed alot of issues when i do? Mainly I dont bleed nearly as easily as i used to, even when i try and cut a little deeper it takes a while to start to bleed and it only does a bit before it clots up & then i wind up really frustrated because i feel like im not "cutting right" and i didnt bleed in the way that i beed to feel better or that i wasted it (im trying my best to keep my frequency to a minimum)
I guess im wondering if anyone else has had similar problems? Especially the feeling upset because it didnt really "go right"?
