My arm is a horrible mess. nasty infected wounds, scars and fresher cuts. My SH has really gotten out of hand. It's no longer a case of covering up one cut and saying "Oh, I'm so clumsy, lol. I hit it on the side of the closet. I really should sand that thing down." I am going to two events; this weekend my best friend is having a Doctor Who marathon weekend and I've really looked forward to it. And in 3 weeks time there's a big family get-together. It would be simple to put on a long sleeved top... but the thing is, both places are likely to get very hot... and I'm bad with heat. Before my SH got this bad again I've been wearing T-shirts... also in an effort to try to live with all the scars that will always be part of me... and I could tell people that I had been doing 'silly things as a teenager'... (I've been cutting since I was 13, but the truth is I have harmed myself since I was 5) At my friends party I had a T-shirt picked out. (Doctor Who fan shirt)... I am trying to figure out if I can find the long sleeved fingerless gloves I have from college. I haven't worn those in years. But the problem is... my friend also does SH. She knows all the tricks... and she's tried to help me stop from the time we met. She sees everything and I know she gets so sad... and so do I when I see her in the same situation. so... I need something clever.
