Default How to cover up cuts?

I just made fresh cuts on my arms and wrists and I need help on how to cover them up when I'm in class (I have school in a few hours). It's been an awful night and I'm worried I'll start to cry during my morning class, and I do not want to disturb the teacher or the class in general. I also have gym tomorrow and I need to change for gym. Any suggestions?

Do you need to wear a uniform?

If not, wear a jumper on. Or a sports one if you can during sport, or a long sleeved shirt.

Either that or wear a bandage.

Or just go without covering them and just fuck up anyone who talks shit?

Fuck em all.

Except you cutie.

Thank you, a bandage worked.

If you have a sister or a mother, try blending in green eyeshadow with a foundation (that is, if their skin tone matches you)

Be careful with make-up on fresh cuts. I'd really really really not use that on fresh wounds because that'll most likely interfere with the healing process and stuff.

I personally cover wounds and scars up by wearing long-sleeved shirts or vests on top of a tank top. If it gets a little too warm for my liking, I can slide off my vest but still keep it around my arms because taking it off will be too cold because all I'm wearing under it is a tank top. Long-sleeved plaid or flannel shirts are amazing for me because I actually really like wearing them and usually, the fabric is rather thin so I won't get too warm either.

As for PhysEd, you can either don't do anything at all and leave them uncovered, something I'd not recommend if scars are darker or wounds are still healing and have (dark) scabs, or cover them up using something subtle, such as a wristband. It's something one uses while playing sports and it's been doing the trick for me.

Use long-sleeved shirts, cover up using wristbands when wearing short sleeves. And better yet, don't cut at all.



I should have known it was all a lie...

To another reality.

Nothing worked for me, eventualy people saw it anyway. I lied about them and kept lying untill they forgot.

shout at the world because the world doesn't love you

I wore a wrist band (The kind they don't sell at Hot Topic anymore, the wider, thick kind) everrryy day, everywhere, for at least 8 years. You get used to them after a while and people were used to me wearing them so no one ever looked at my arm. In the event that someone did notice, or my wrist band was off (When I would be washing dishes at work) I would just lie or tell people to mind their own business.
