Default Please help?!! self harm cuts!!!

I know its bad to self harm, the scars, infection etc etc, I can cover scars up like I did my others, and also I spray Savlon anti septic on it after I have done it

so yeah, last night I did some more self harming, I was only doing small cuts and the razor got stuck and I pulled it and it sliced nearly all of my skin off.. I thought I was going to die, I was so scared, it was bleeding for a hour straight, my clothes and bed was soaked with blood..

so yeah, how can I hide this please?!! it hurts so bad!!

I'm never going to do it again!!

You wouldn't die from that, it's really not that bad.
It'll heal up on it's own and fade over time.
Hide it by wearing long sleeves?

Don't hide it. Tell someone and get help.

Take note for the future, it's bad to experiment. As Charlotte said, the wound'll heal in it's own time, and for the time being wear some long sleeves. Sadly, there aren't many other ways to hide cuts.

Far easier said than done, let me tell you that.
But yes, I'd advise talking to at least someone about it, that way you can be helped to stop it. Not hiding it at all can create some problems though, so just tell those you want to know about it.

I don't really have long sleeves, I am wearing a coat now lol

I have told people.. I've seen the school nurse, but about the one up there in the pic which I did last night, this morning I went to the bin next to the school police officer on purpose, he saw me coming so he walked up to me and went 'hows life, Amy?' and I shrugged shoulders, he said 'couldn't be any better or couldn't be any worse' and I said in the middle.. and I told him about it, and I showed him, put it away, he asked to see it again, so I showed it again and he went 'Razors are for shaving your legs and other hair.. not for cutting yourself' and started laughing (he's only messing) and he said he will talk to my Head of Community (Miss Herapath) for her to talk to me and get me to see the school nurse again, I told him that I'd seen her a few times already, and he said it doesn't look like its working so I need to go again


thanks all

Default Re: Please help?!! self harm cuts!!!

i'm not sure how to feel helping someone hide self harm :\

but a large plaster would cover it, help it heal more cleanly and can be explained away fairly easily
