Ok, I don't really know how stupid this is going to sound, but... Is it a bad idea to scratch or scribble out a word that you cut into yourself? And by that I mean, I'd have to cut over an existing, but older, scar. I wrote a word into myself the last time I cut, and I really really regret it, and I don't want that word stuck with me for the rest of my life. It's the only thing I can think of right now, and I'm not sure if I'm just being pessimistic about scar-reduction techniques, or if this is a realistic approach. In fact, I can't even say for sure that this isn't just some twisted way of justifying cutting again. Thanks.
