Both. On one hand, I’m able to talk to a lot more people and get help when I need it, but on the other hand, it’s like people are walking on egg shells around me and I just want to be treated normally. Every time people see my scars they bombard me with questions and plead with me to stop; it’s really getting annoying. And every time I do cut I get this overwhelming feeling of disgust because I’ve broken yet another promise.
