I'm stressed the fuck out cause of so many reasons. It's all coming at me kow you know, like a storm. I stopped cutting a long time ago but I felt like it was the only thing left that could chill me out. And it did. But now I'm left with two cuts on my left arm and one on my upper left arm. They're pretty obvious so people will notice. I can wear a sweater to school, I only have one test anyway. But I've got a very nice party tomorrow evening and I'm gonna wear something without sleeves. So I gotta cover these cuts up (makeup?) Or make up a real good excuse as to why they are there.
By the way, I'm really not waiting for someone to tell me not to selfharm. I am fully responsible for myself and I know the consequenses of my actions. Yet it's my choice to make so please don't give me the 'stop it, life will get better' speech.
I appreciate the concern though.

Why bother to try and cover them. It's never an issue for the guy that loves you. They tell a story. A story of your life and traumas. Just be open and honest with any guy. If they can't handle the scars, and what caused them to exist, then they are not worth bothering with. If you have to, go find a guy that will love whats in the parcel, and not be bothered what it's wrapped in.1

Cover them with make-up but in all honesty you're just going to have to come clean about them. They're part of who you are. They'll fade a little with time, maybe try mederma for the long term. I still have a scar on my hand from cutting. It isn't pretty but I love it because it reminds me of how far I've come and that I'm much happier now.1
