When I was giving my little nieces a bath they seen my cuts. & being 4 & 7 they had no idea what they were from. I told them my friends dog scratched up my arms. They made horrible faces & asked if I was ok over & over. I've never felt so ashamed of my self harming.

  • Sooner or later, cutting scars ARE seen by someone, if only by a doctor. Cutters know this and that's why they cut, for the passive attention and concern.
    There are many ways to deal with the inevitable pain of life, ones that don't leave evidence that "accidentally" get revealed.
    I have no compassion or respect for cutters.

  • I mean that's the risk you take with self harm, people are going to see it, and you can continue to make up stories but eventually someone, who isn't 7 years old is going to understand what is really going on and know the truth.

    It's okay though, I'm sure they really had no idea, but maybe let the thought of your nieces being so worried about you help you to keep from doing it next time? Those little kids obviously love you very much and would hate to see you in pain.

  • Are you still self harming?
