    Have you ever hurt yourself in front of anyone?

    • I never did hurt myself in front of anyone and never would.  When I wa younger. I would have been punished and made me really think that what I was doing was really, really wrong.  I would have been judged and called stupid, like I wasn’t anyway.  If the foster people found out I would have been ridiculed more than I already was.  It didn’t matter if I was caught, maybe I wanted, maybe I did but they were so into finding ways of how to not believe me and calling me a liar, ugly, I’ll never amount to anything and a lot of other stuff.  I was caught doing other stuff so it didn’t really matter to me because I was always punished for it, so who the hell cares.

      In my teens I was rebelious and did what teens did X 100.   When I was married I thought I found my mate and was, so called, “happy”,  I was very happy when my children were born.   As time went on the abuse started to happen in the marriage.  I guess I missed the abuse and that’s when I was cutting and cleaning myself up and the questions started.  I was able to cover them up and the yelling began.  The more the abuse the more the cutting.

      I never would or never have cut in front of anyone.  But yet, my daughter is a SI but she never witnessed it.

    No I have never actually cut in front of anyone but I have been thinking about it recently. My guidance counselor and I are so close that she understands if I do slip up and she won’t tell my parents because they already know that I cut. She promised she won’t get upset with me or tell anyone but she will want to know why. So anyway, she understands everything that I have gone through in the last few years and has even held my hand and held me close while I cried, but I have been getting an urge to have her truly feel my pain if I cut in front of her. I have been truly confused over this thought and am afraid to bring it up to anyone.

    No, I have never cut in front of anyone. I’ve never been caught, but I almost was. My dad made me do something, and my cuts were still bleeding. It was very hard to hide; however, I did somehow. It was scary to know that someone might see the bleeding. My parents, friends, and counselor, have all seen my cuts, but none have experienced the action of the cutting nor seen the bleeding.
