Because if MH services find out they will stick you on Clozapine!!!!! :eek:

Can't wear tank tops or short sleeves anymore... as a result you can't go swimming or to the gym because everyone will see your scars and know you're mental. :eek:

Because somewhere inside you is a hurt inner-child who needs love, not pain.

Because you would never do your self-harm method to another person, so what makes it ok to do it to yourself?

Esprit do a great range of long sleeve tops but you will get sick of wearing them!

To fade the scars it takes a lot of either time, patience or both of them together.

I have just started with bio oil so the last one is going to be for me and of course, you don't know 100% whether it's going to help or not.
