I have scars and I don't know how I got them... - January 14th 2010, 02:03 AM

So I have a wide variety of scars, alot of them are self-inflicted, but several of them I have no idea how I got them...it's not like I scratched myself and didn't realize it because they are on the inside of my upper thighs, right by my um...female parts. There are like 10 or so of them, some of them are really deep and jagged and a couple are straight and not as deep. But I have no clue what happened. I'm positive that I didn't do it because I have a set area where I cut and my SH cuts are very methodical and are never jagged. Also, I'm right handed so I couldn't have cut on my inner right thigh and definitly not that deep. And it's just very confusing because I'm wondering..did something happen to me that was so horrible that I blocked it out? I've only had them for at the longest 2 years. I was with a guy at one point that was somewhat abusive and I was always drunk or high when I was with him, but I would have figured out the next day when I had fresh cuts that obviously he did something to me. Or I could I have just blocked out the entire thing? I don't know how I never realized what happened. I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on this...it's really bothering me.

Life isn't about worrying,
That's a waste of time.
And life isn't about being perfect,
It will never happen.
Life is about finding yourself,
And finding people who accept that person.

Sometimes people do block out even that were horrible and thier mind literally shuts down and aren't able to remember what happened to them. That with the combination of alcohol and drugs could have definatly made this a possiblty that you blocked out a memory. However it might not be what you think, maybe you abtained those scars another way. You won't ever know unless some how you can remember. There are specialist that are trained to unlock that part of your brain if you really want to know what happened.

Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Hey Jen,

There are a few possibilities here. You could have unconsciously hurt yourself, people have done it before. As they are deep,and where they are located, the chance that you scratched yourself or accidentally got hurt is lower.

It is possible that something did happen, and that you just don't remember it. The drugs and alcohol could have hampered your memory, or you could have blocked it out. I know blocked memories are hard to retrieve, but you either have to allow yourself to remember it, or just let it go.

If you need anything Jen, don't hesitate to pm me.

Sometimes things just happen.
