Exclamation Need help covering them!!! ASAP!!! Please? - September 27th 2012, 07:40 PM

Ok. I am panicking!!!

I'm going bridemaid dress shopping on Saturday, so I'm going to be in and out of dresses all day. And I self-harmed just below my left elbow on Monday and on my right ribs on Wednesday and I dont want anyone to see the scars.

Yeah, I know. I didn't think it through.

Hopefully, the ones on my ribs shouldn't be a problem, but they might - I might need my stepmum to help me in or out a dress or something.

So I'm wondering - how could I hide the scars?

I only wear powder foundation, which hardly hides anything.

I don't know what to do!!


And she turns up the music, to drown out her life.

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!

Well the best thing you can do is continue working to beat the self-harm. I know that doesn't help right now though. Is there any way you could borrow more makeup from a friend or family member? I don't wear makeup so I can't tell you what would be best (although I'm sure you can find that on Google or from someone else here). But yeah, that's all I can think of right now; I'll let you know if I think of any other ideas. Just make sure you don't put makeup on any fresh cuts! Hope this helps a little.
