Bracelets making cuts worse? - September 2nd 2018, 05:04 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I cut on my hips, but mostly my wrists. At first I didn't even notice what the pain was, but realized that the moment I took them off it went away a bit. Most of it is from the cuts themselves, but it seems as if some is from the bracelets I'm wearing. I wear them almost 24/7. It makes sense, as there are beads on most of them. So, where can I get some softer bracelets? And how do I keep the bracelets I have from making the cuts even worse? This is frustrating because the bracelets should be hiding this, not making it more visible. Thanks if you took the time to read this, but it was nice to get a few things off of my chest, ya know? Hugs!

Okay, so I'm quite concerned about the cutting and recommend using these coping methods listed in the link: http://www.teenhelp.org/alternatives/ as well as talking to a trusted adult or consuleur.

I do understand the need to hide them, and rubber bracelets can be sold at any store. I've seen them at walmart, target and accessory stores at malls.

I hope you get better soon

Sorry I post here so often, but it's pretty much an anonymous place to talk about things I can't really tell anyone else. But I will take a look at thay list!

Don't be sorry for posting here. Post here as much as you'd like. TeenHelp is a safe haven for a lot of people.

Definitely take a look at the list that was provided to you above. It may benefit you.

Something to consider is going to a craft store (if you can) and purchasing some string and making your own friendship style bracelets out of it. They are soft and you can make the bracelets wide depending on what type of bracelet you do. They break within a few months, however, and are sometimes uncomfortable on your skin when they're wet.

You could also look in the sports section of a store and try sweatbands. They are generally pretty wide.
