I have been cutting for one year. My arm looks like it was mauled by a bear. I now have this wonderful boyfriend and he makes me so happy. I never cut anymore. The scars are still there and I always where long sleves. Today he asked me why don't I show my arms. I lied and said that I am always so cold. He says I am so beatiful and me showing my arms would make any man crazy. I really want to but I am afraid that he will think that I am crazy.
