    I accidentally threw a blood stained shirt in the dirty clothes today. When I came home from school I saw that my sister was doing laundry. I don?t think she would put the shirt in the washer if she new there was blood on it and I didn?t see it anywhere. I don?t know if she saw the blood or not but I know if she did, she would tell everyone about it first before she would say anything to me.

    Now am very nervous because I honestly don?t know what would happen if they all found out about the cutting. I usually keep the depression and everything pretty well hidden, at least I think I do. The only reason they would have to suspect that I have been cutting myself is that my other sister used to do it.

    Am thinking that if she does ask about it then ill just say that I had a bloody nose and that was the only thing I had to soak it up with. I used to get bloody noses allot so that is kind of believable.

    What did you all do when your friends/family found out? If they ever found out about it.

    My mom has seen my cuts when they were still scabs and all I had to do was say that I hurt myself somehow and she would drop it. I was cutting my arms before and she was finding them too easily. I started on my legs and she hasn't seen anything since.

    I don't know what I would say if my mom found out that I was cutting. I think I would try to play it off as something else, but if that didn't work, I would probably just try to tell her that it was the last time. That she didn't have to worry.

    About the clothes...the key is to do your own laundry...lol

    I hope things don't get bad for you.

    PM me if you feel the need.

    umm to your question...i dont know. my mum kind of knows in that shes seen scars..which i made excuses for and once she saw something that i couldnt really make an excuse for. she kind of said it to my face but i still just denied it and we havent mentioned it since. she definitely doesnt know the extent though. i dont know what the point in this post is..just that you asked..lol.

    being a hypocrite but maybe letting them find out could be a positive thing so that they could help and support you? i guess only you know how they would react though. take care.
