I have been looking everywhere and nobody will tell you how to hide OPEN cuts, its only how to hide scars. Well obviously I don't have much scars because they're all cuts. When I first started I would only scratch myself knowing hiding actually cuts would be difficult, but after a while scratching wasn't enough and it turned into bigger and deeper cuts overtime. My parents, friends or anyone else don't know and I need to hide them. I can't use makeup because most of them still bleed every once in a while. And even wearing bracelets they peek through. Don't tell me self harm is wrong or I need to tell someone or get help because its going to be a waste of your time. I can't stop and even though it sounds sick I don't want to. Cutting is the only way I can express myself and the only pain I can control. A lot of you won't understand and may never but I don't care what you think because unless you do it too there's no point in trying to convince you.
In case you were wondering I only need help hiding the ones on my wrists. Before I started to cut I would wear skinny jeans or leggings and tshirts so I don't need to worry about hiding the other ones without looking odd. And please answer my poll.

Relax. I've been doing it for almost 5 years and have somewhere 50 and 60 cuts and scars. Bracelets help, and so do wrist bands. If it weren't summer, sweat shirts or long sleeved t shirts would be good. You can manuver your arm if you are around people who you don't want to see them so the cut parts showing are facing down, and cover it with your other arm. Avoid people but not so much that it is suspicious. A few years ago I made my own bracelet out of 3 pieces of yarn. I braided hem together and got a really long piece. You then tie the ends together and wrap it aroundyour wrist until it cannot make another loop (dont cut off circulation) and you can readjust it from under so that it covers where you meed it to. People will complement it but won't know what they are complementing. I dot recommend cutting but I know how useless it is to say so. So just stay safe.3
