If you never dealt with self-harm, you may not understand but if you know someone who does self-harm, this may help you understand better. Self-harming is a serious illness, the scars stay with you forever. Here’s a little about my self-harm struggle.

You know people go through tough stuff in their life that they may not be able to handle or cope with in the right way. For me that was when I got sexually abused at the age of 13 that I started to self-mutilate myself. Let me tell you the scars never go away the pain may leave but the scars, they fade slightly but they are engraved in your skin. I have scars all over my left thigh my wrist to my elbow on my left arm, my ribs both sides, my ankle and on my right wrist. It is a horrible illness that is hard to shake off it’s like doing drugs once you get a taste the feel of the pain but the feeling of release is addicting. The illness can become worse and worse if not helped, it could escalate to the point of going to deep or cutting a vein.

It’s nothing to joke about and some don’t understand but when you feel so alone and are in so much pain and the feeling of relief when you drag that blade across your skin opening the wounds and the pain seeping out, that feeling you start to crave. I’ve been clean for five months and when I have break downs I want to cut so bad but I fight it and where I want to cut I take markers and draw beautiful designs. Don’t engrave your body with scars but engrave them with a needle and beautiful designs (tattoos). Everything can and does get better, but only time can tell, don’t let people judge you on your scars they aren’t something to be proud but they remind you that the battle was won and the war has ended.
