    I just had my psychotic ex- boyfriend come over so I can do his laundry. I know that is not healthy, and probably a really wrong thing for me to do. But he asked for my help, and I said I´d do it. It all happened a bit fast, and I didnt have time to put on my long sleeves. He is the only person who ever knew about the cutting, and when we broke up I promised never to do it again. But I did, after HIS breakdown I felt too much, and I dulled it with cutting.. And now he saw. And he is worried, and I´m worried he´ll tell someone, or try to get more involved in my life. I really cant cope with him being actively in my life. I know I keep letting him in, but I have problems turning people down when they ask for help. And when there is too much, I cope by cutting.

    How do I deal with this, because all I want to do right now is cut, and take away the anxiety. But I know I shouldnt..

    Well once someone sees there's not much to do. Try and explain the situation to him. Try a bit of make up to cover them up a bit in case you're confronted about it. After a while it becomes second nature as far as hiding scars goes. Mine are mostly from Burns and those suckers are hard to cover up. Best of luck to you.

    I think hiding scars becomes routine, ive been using Bio Oil and recently been going to a tanning bed. I am a chicken and dont cut or anything like that... so its more of a anxiety problem for me.

    Let me tell you its hard feeling closed in while laying in a tanning bed... when you are claustrophobic. But to get rid of the scars... its overall worth it.
