feel disgusting - February 25th 2011, 07:23 PM

im not really sure what im looking for people to say here but i just need to get this out. I feel compleltey disgusting right now. I have cuts on my arm and leg and scars all over my stomach. I feel so ashamed. I made a huge mistake and now i have all these gross cuts all over my skin. No wonder i dont have only one friend, anyone else who found out would think im gross and a freak.

We do not fear death, we fear that no one will notice our absence. That we will disappear without a trace.

Hey there.

It sounds like things have gotten a bit rough for you recently. I'm glad you came here for some support.

During recovery a lot of people have slip ups. And I know its hard to deal with it when we do, but remember its not about the slip up but its about picking yourself back up again. And you can do it. Your cuts and scars don't make you any less beautiful and they don't make you worthless. You should be kind of proud of your scars because it proves you are a fighter and that you kept on going even when things were hard. Don't be ashamed of yourself, it is okay. You're doing really well so keep on going!

I want to say that i think if people decided not to be friends with you because you have self harmed then they are not worth it. Clearly you're worth much more than they ever will be if they are judging you because of it.

Remember you're beautiful. I believe in you.

Hey Lola,

I'm really sorry to hear that things aren't going so well for you at the moment. Lots of people have times when they slip up when they're trying to recover from self harm and I know that when it happens you feel really bad that you did it but at the end of the day it has happened, it's in the past and you can't change that. All you can really do is try to pick yourself up, dust yourself down and try again because while I understand that it's difficult, these slip ups only make you stronger as you have even more experience as to what it's like to go through the good and the bad times of recovery.

You're a beautiful person despite your scars and those scars are a symbol of showing that you're a survivor. We're your friends and we're here for you, always.

If you ever want or need someone to talk to then I'm always here for you so feel free to send me a PM or a VM at anytime if you would like to talk about anything.

You can do this, we believe in you. <3

When we're lost in the madness, kindness is wisdom.
