I don’t hurt myself in front of other people. I almost was caught. One night I had cut and I guess moved a funny way while there was fresh blood (I don’t cut my arms, though) and somehow I got blood on my face. My mom asked what it was (this was before she knew about my si) and I told her I had a nose bleed, Luckily, that worked. Last school year I cut a few times at school, I was never caught, though. But the teachers look at my arms when I take my jacket off….they won’t see anything though, besides twloha on my arms. I am not allowed to lock my bedroom door. Cutting is a part of my routine so I locked my door a few nights ago while I was cleaning up, and my dad knocks on the door. I said “oh, I was just getting dressed” he goes “no u werent, you wore that earlier.” So I told him that I was trying on my outfit for school the following day. I usually wait until they go to bed to cut. so no, I was never caught, but I was close to it.
