  1. My arms are scarred up too. Makes me sad when I see other people's scars because I know the pain that goes on behind them. I don't think you are crazy. If you are, then I am because I do the same things. Feel better Dani.

  2. Love you, Hope you are ok,
    Please take care, I dont know what I'd do without you,

  3. lol, I bet the poppers burned coming back up. I would never purge spicy food. Sorry you had to go through that.

    As for your cutting... I've been there. I cut all the way through high school. Been to the ER because of it... took too many pills and almost died (another ER visit and stomach pump later...). Just remember that this too will pass. It's not easy, but I remember I didn't cut for the pain or to feel alive. I cut to see the blood. It calmed me... soothed me. But I haven't cut in almost five years now. You can barely see my scars, but it doesn't mean I don't regret doing it.

    Good luck. If you ever need someone to talk to please email me. The link is under one of my tabs on my blog. :) Stay strong.

  4. I'm the same way with cutting, my arm looks like that too. It drives me crazy how when people see scars, they automatically judge you /:
    I hate spicy food, I haven't eaten in god knows how long for the reason that it's such a nightmare to purge...
    Hope you feel better soon doll, I love your blog

  5. my arms are scarred and my legs are horrible. I used to hide them, and dread having anyone see them, and slowly I've allowed myself to stop hiding. I'll occasionally wear skirts, and I don't hide my arms. I was shocked by how few people actually ask questions. I'm not sure if it's because I'm older, but people just don't feel a need to bring it up if they notice, which makes me feel a lot less shame about my past

  6. You basically just desribed how I feel (in a much better way than I can!) I struggle with cutting too, I don't hide my scars anymore, they are part of who I am. but I also haven't cut in a couple months. if (and's kind of inevitable) I do start again I know I'll start covering them up again, because yes people think we're crazy...Let us know how the books are! I am a crazy reader and love trying new books!

  7. So sad you once found your way to cutting. Unfortunately me too, I found that way, I currently am tryping to fina a better way to express muyself instead of cutting. It's hard, believe me, but it's possible... So one day, if you're thinking about stopping, know it's possible! As for the shockelement to other people, I have scars and I do tend to hide them, just because other ppl make me feel uncomfortable when they look at them...
    And yes, do tell about the books in the future! I'm curious!!

  8. I've got the scars as well... and ten bracelets on my left arm to cover them. I've toyed with the idea of taking them off, but in the end I'm always too afraid.

    Spicy food is the worst! It burns usssssss (LOTR reference)!


    check out this blog. Rachel shares her story of finally going out without covering her arms. It is an inspiring story . Also ironic that you both posted about this topic on the same day.

  10. I wish you didn't have scars dear, you're a beautiful girl. I know you don't hurt yourself to have scars but it's just really sad. I've never been a cutter so I have a hard time relating, but do you want to try and make them fade? Cocoa butter is really great for scars and makes you smell lovely and your skin super soft. You shouldn't have to be ashamed. Hopefully a day of green tea will give you enough energy to get around and then a workout will clear your head a bit.

  11. I have scars too and I no longer try to hide them. Fuck what people think, who are they to judge? We have a right to be free and comfortable in our own skin...whether we have scars or not...and those that would dare judge you for your own body, your own private struggles, are not worth the care, time, or effort you would put into hiding them. Your scars show that you have endured pain and struggles and you have survived. Hold your head high and walk with pride and confidence and let the reactions of the ignorant and judgmental breeze right off of your shoulders if you can. I hope you feel better soon and good luck on your fast <3

  12. My scars are really bad on my legs. I can cover a lot of them up with that spray on stocking stuff, but there's still loads that are visible because they're so big. I just stopped caring, though. :/ People never comment, although I catch stares sometimes. But I figure screw them if they want to stare and judge us! I think of them as battle scars, because we've gone through serious internal battles to get them. Makes us stronger in the end. <3

  13. I have looked and read a lot in your blog. Do you have the mind to be a penpal? I mean oldschool penpal.
    If you could be interested, you can mail me here:

    Im female. 27 years old. And we do have some things in common.
    I hope you are openminded....
