quick fix? - August 2nd 2013, 04:46 PM

Iv been clean for a few months and I cut a few days ago after my dad pissed me off. It wasn't really him but just pure need to feel a blade again.
Anyways they weren't really that deep and there wasn't that many so its not too bad.

I have a problem though, its my 18th bd on the 10th and obviously its august now and its gonna be hot...
I'm having a family dinner on the 9th and a day out on my actual birthday, the 10th. I really need to hide them because my family are going to be there and I really don't want my grandparents and stuff seeing my arm. Is there anything I can do?

Hey!

First off, happy early birthday! And congrats for going a few months SH free, that's great! Where are they on your arm? You could always wear an ace bandage and say that your sprained your arm; I've done that multiple times. I'm trying to think about this because the summer is always harder to hide cuts. You could use makeup as long as your cuts aren't swollen or still open. Good luck!

Hey there!

Sorry to hear you relapsed, just wanna say you did really well for going that long. Anyway, is it too many to cover with bracelets? You could also use Cassie's idea of putting make-up on it if they aren't open, or use the sprained arm excuse.

And hey, don't give up on recovery. You can do it. I hope you have a great birthday by the way. Happy early birthday!

There's an article on cover up tips here. I hope it helps.

Also, I turn 18 a week before you. Yay for August birthdays!

Thanls for all the help <3 I'm probably going to use some makeup on the higher cuts and just wear bracelets lower down, they're up to the scabby stage now so I think makeup should be ok
