    Afterall, Talk Is Cheap.

    I haven't cut for almost 6 months now. Lately I've been having a lot of stress and personal problems and the urge is coming back. I've resorted to 'cutting' my arm with a highlighter and a black pen. My arm looks hideous but there's no blood or scars. I just hate the way people...

    and I can't help but always say yes to it. Cutting is my only relief but I cut all over my body so much that I have to dress like it's winter all the time. I've been self harming ever since I was about six. My mother is ashamed of me and says I'm an embarrassment, my dad left me...

    I hate having to wear long sleeves.
