    I have scars on my wrists,

    arms, upper arms, chest, and thighs. Everyone I know has only seen the ones on my wrists. A lot of my friends were shocked to find these there. "But you were always the happy one! Nooo!" Well actually no, I was depressed all of 8th grade. Just an act to keep others from not...

    The Woodsplitter

    Sitting in hospital texting with one hand. A simple and common accident yet still annoying. I crushed my thumb between a log and the base plate. It was a gnarly piece of wood that slid and got me as the ram came down. My thumb hurts and I'll need stitches, but Im more concerned...

    Something To Be Proud Of

    I was at a public pool last week and I saw a woman with scars on her thighs, arms, and shoulders, they were clearly self harm scars. She wasn't hiding them at all and she didn't look the least bit embarrassed. Not only did I admire her but I also felt calmed that someone (even a...

    I Knew I'd Marry Him

    The day my boyfriend kissed the scars I'd carried for years, I knew I'd marry him.  We've been together 15 years, and he still traces my scars with his fingers.  I spent years trying to hide them, now I know they aren't a disfigurement or a defect, but a badge of honor...

    My Self-Harm Story

    Anymore I only have scars. Scars that I didn't even need. It took me two years to realize you shouldn't dwell on the past or bottle things up because one day, that bottle will blow. Cutting is not needed. It's a temporary fix to a temporary problem. The way I look at things is...

    I used to cut myself

    when I was younger. For me it was the only way to survive the day. It has been years since the last cut, but the scars Are still wisible. They are a daily reminder of how strong I've been. I have accepted them as a part of me. But each time I meet new people, I get those...

    Distract yourself. That's what they tell you to

    do, to prevent you from picking that blade up again. The problem with that theory, it's only temporary. And when your alone, at night trying to sleep. That thought you tried to distract yourself from, comes back with a rage.

    I'm sure that every wound tells a story.

    Whether it be that one time your cat scratched you, or being burnt after escaping a deadly fire; wounds of self-harm bear the most heartfelt stories. All that differs between each of us is how many pages that story may be? I conclude by saying that my story is way too long to...

    Every Scar Is a Memory

    Each one of my scars tells a story...of a war against myself. When I hurt, its the only way I know how to deal with my pain. It wasn't to long ago...maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago, that a dear friend here on EP talked me out of hurting myself. It also helped that my husband found the...
