All the time
I would give the world to stop self harming. I only started a few months ago, and I don’t do it too often, but lately it’s been more and more. I am very strategic and secretive about it. The only one who knows I do it is my boyfriend. I will only hurt my thighs and stomach, I generally will scratch myself and dig my nails into my skin. I am careful not to leave marks because this is my secret that I am ashamed of. I wish I could stop.
