I was just kind of curiously wondering.
For those of you who cut your wrists and use bracelets/wristbands to cover up the cuts/scars...
What do your accessories look like?

I used to wear a black and white checkered wristband.
Now I have two silly bands (B for Becca, and a tooth), my orange beaded bracelet, a red silk cord bracelet my sister gave me, a blue zebra bracelet with a peace sign, my Pandora, and a pearl bracelet from my sorority.
I'm gonna make a blue and green beaded one because the beads are so pretty!

Sorry if this was random, I just kind of like being able to talk about cutting sometimes without actually having to do it.
Even though it sucks right now. :/

when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

Well, although I'm a recovering self-harmer, I guess I'll answer this. I was going to take pictures, but I can't find all the things I wanted to photograph.

Basically, I have various sweat bands (with skulls, flames, etc. on them), studded/spiked bracelets, a pair of beaded bracelets that are a bit "dressy", and I have a couple pairs of fingerless gloves as well.

I also tend to use armwarmers, though I know they're longer and more obvious. These range between stripes, lace, chains, etc. Plus, I like fishnet/mesh/lace/corrosion shirts for covering up as well, particularly during cooler weather.

I actually have a similar past Becca, I used to use wrist bands, I had about 3-4 I would interchange, one was checkerboard, one was pink checkerboard, one was striped, and one said "Rad" on it. I now use bracelets, I have a bracelet saying "Hope", one for To Write Love on her Arms, one for Luekemia awareness, a rainbow one I made, an ASU marching band bracelet, a gold bracelet from my boyfriend, and a Mexican bracelet my sister and I bought at a little shop in New Mexico as friendship bracelets.

I have like those thick rubber bracelets. I put five on each arm even though my scars have faded.

I use a Demi Lovato bracelet, on the right wrist (it only has like 4 cuts on it) and on my left arm (which has a scar that says 'help me' and numerous cuts) I draw my butterfly, 3 Jonas Brothers bracelets (one for each brother), a sterling silver 'Stay Strong' bracelet my mom gave me after I told her, some rubber bands and a 'To Write Love on Her Arms' bracelet! I really like this topic, it's kind of nice to talk about this kinda not so serious stuff with people who understand.

I'm just a girl that wants to believe in fairytales again...
Stay Strong <3
