I've been trying to quit cutting, but I had a bad day a couple of days ago. I snapped and didn't want to take it out on anyone, so I cut my legs, one on each. The cuts are both a few inches above the ankle of the leg they're on. The scab came off on one from my dog, so it's red, and the other is b/w pink and red. Someone has been pressuring me to show them my legs, told someone, and they're gonna check them in a few hours. I can't leave where I am. I can take makeup from someone else who's here and put it back, but that's all I have. How do I hide the cuts?

I have a friend who used to cut her ankles. To cover up the scars, she:
1) Made bracelets and tied them around her ankles. Or, if you can't do that, you can:
2) Get concealer (make-up) and then put it on your scars to make it sink into your leg. Then get pens and texta's and draw patterns and pictures all around the scars, making it even less noticeable and drawing attention to the patterns and pictures and not the scars.
3) Or, you can say that you were itchy and accidently scratched yourself.
4) You could also wear high socks and fold them just above your scars and then let them check the rest of your legs, acting calm and normal like you know that they won’t find anything. Don’t try and convince them that you didn’t cut, as you’ll make them suspicious and check everywhere. Just let them look at your legs above your scars with the socks just covering them.
Other than that, I can't really think of anything else. Hope it works out for you.
