So, a couple weeks ago I self harmed on my left forearm and upper arm pretty badly. Around ten injuries. I've self harmed before but never in a public area, nor did I ever want to, but I was extremely mad at people and myself one day and had a panic attack and did it. As a result I have several scars and several of the injuries are still healing, I've been wearing long sleeve shirts since that day to hide them. I'm 18, still live with my parents too. They would freak out if they knew I self harmed and also I don't want my friends to know really because the last thing I want is sympathy. Any ideas on how to hide these without a long sleeve shirt? The weather is warming up and I can't stand it anymore. And for the future, because people are going to see eventually.. any advice on how to tell people without them freaking out? I'm thinking of telling my best friend but he would maybe.. I just hate constantly hiding them, it's a hassle.
