Self-Injury & Relationships

Self-harm is one of the last things people feel ashamed of, despite it being far more widespread than you might suspect. Cutting often begins during the teenage years—on average, between the ages of But keep in mind two important facts: By contrast, they often self-harm to feel alive rather than numb. To an outsider, self-harm may seem incomprehensible, even crazy, but if you go with the truism that each person copes as best as they can with the resources they have at the time, it might be a little easier to understand.

In my article on “Self-Injury and Relationships”, I created a bullet-point list detailing how to tell your partner that you are other handy guides on HealthyPlace like this one: “Explaining Self-Harm Scars to Others”.But, as we all know, telling someone about your self-injury is only half the battle because you never know how the other person will react.

I’ve been seeing a dermatologist to help minimize their appearance, but he says that there might not be anything he can do besides chop off my limbs? I go to extreme measures to keep them hidden because I’ve been treated badly over them before, so as a result I wear sleeves all the time and haven’t worn a bikini in public in about 9 years. The only people in my life who know are my doctors, my immediate family, and my 5 closest friends. Just for some perspective here, I started when I was 8.

I didn’t know what I was doing, I just knew that it “helped”, and I didn’t really understand the concept of scarring I just figured like ALL other wounds I had gotten in my life, they would go away eventually , and since they don’t exactly have Self Harm in elementary school, I didn’t know how deep was TOO deep. So in short, they’re bad. Definitely the worst I’ve ever seen in real life and on the internet. I don’t think “why” I have them matters here, it’s over and in the past.

I didn’t really have an interest in dating until I was 18, and I still haven’t gotten around to it, so I’ve never had a guy reject me because of them. But I’ve had about 4 friends suddenly drop me days after I told them about it, with no previous complaints about me as a person one guy who I was friends with for a year before I told him did own up to it and told me that they made me “too much for ANYONE to handle” , so I can pretty safely assume it’s because the scaring scared them off.

I had a really close friend pass away last year and didn’t even feel the urge to self harm, so if that doesn’t prove that the habit is broken, I don’t think anything will. So I’m wondering how many of you would decide not to date or even not be friends with someone over scars like this? I’ve asked some of my friends, but I feel like they might be trying not to hurt my feelings, so I’m asking y’all in hopes that you’ll answer as honestly as possible.

Love Martyr

Having depression is hard enough for me, then losing someone so close to me made everything worse. So I decided to get this amazing tattoos over my scars to remind me that he will always be there. I would feel all this anger built up inside of me and I wanted to find some kind of release. But with depression, I wanted to hurt myself because I felt like I deserved it.

So, my arms would almost be covered in cuts daily. It all started with a small cut as a cry for help, but very quickly turned into an addiction.

so would you date someone with self harm scars on their legs/arms? i’ve always been self concious that no one would want to date me because i have self harm scars from when i was they’re completely healed and white but quite raised and i feel they’re very noticeable especially when i’m tanned. i’m much happier now and would never do it again though! just wanted to hear people’s thoughts.

People mostly understand I think when someone becomes psychotic , gets stuck in a deep depression or has mood swings. These are exaggerations of normal states of mind—everyone has felt blue at sometime or another—everyone has felt euphoric or energized at least once. Though loose, psychotic-style thinking is not something that everyone has experienced directly, at least the idea that people can experience hallucinations and delusions is familiar to most.

This basic understanding is not often there when people are confronted with someone who is cutting or burning or otherwise traumatizing themselves. People don’t have good reference points to use so as to understand what motivates self-injury or what people who self-injure are trying to accomplish. Trying to Understand Someone Who Self-Injures That acts of self-injury are so often bloody and horrifying that it makes it harder for people to be thoughtful about what these acts mean.

There is a tendency to panic when you see someone you care about bleeding from self-inflicted wounds, or covered with scars. Such panic interferes with thinking, and makes it harder for people to understand the motives behind self-injury. Further complicating the matter is the way that self-injury looks like it must be a suicide attempt even though it usually isn’t. An act of self-injury which might make sense if understood as a suicide attempt become all the more difficult to comprehend when the self-injurious person denies that they are trying to kill themselves and is telling the truth.

So why do people self-injure?

Lynn May 21, at 4: A little background first. I caught my nine yr old daughter viewing porn on the Internet and feel it is my fault for not protecting her. Some guys at work have referred to the site before, and my curiosity got the better of me. Pretty explicit stuff, and apparently your web history conveys to all kindles on the account.

I forgot to put hers back in child mode when allowing my son to play a game. She found the website as it popped up in the history. I caught her looking at this site and she tried to hide it from me. I sat down with her and explained it was not her fault, and told her that it was not a site for kids and was not even a site for most adults.

I told her that it was not love, and was how some people choose to behave or express themselves. This was awkward, but I tried to stay calm about it for her sake. Possibly ADHD or even bi-polar disorder.
