Post "you lied about cutting"

in September, I was admitted into a mental hospital for suicide. I confessed to my mom that I would cut every now and then. She asked to see them, and I showed her. Well the scars were so very light, because I didn't cut deep and I would smother them in neosporin and mederma- a scar healing ointment. she basically said I lied-just because she didn't see them well.

take in mind- she is a nurse so she probably expected it to be much deeper

Well this is sorta weird. Self-harm isn't basically about how deep you cut or how much you hurt yourself it is just about doing something bad to your body on purpose.
There are many ways of self-harming so I don't understand why your mom would say that.

Ya welcome...
I always self-harmed myself for various reasons so I kinda understand and over the years my family has learned a great deal about it, too and now they are no longer angry or weirder out but try to understand and help.

Taking a close look at me, people wouldn't think I have self-harmed and/or would say things like your mom said. A friend told me once she only saw a few very faint scars on my leg that were hard to notice. I'm sorry your mom was so insensitive after you made a confession that takes a lot of courage.

This is so bad. I don't have any scars... and when I told my therapist I ran sharp object down my arms until they went red (I have the occasional line that looks like a cat scratch from it) he definitely agreed I was self harming and gave me tips. So sorry this mace you feel this way. Hope you're doing OK x

As @Dalcourt said, it’s not “how bad” you do it, it’s the fact that you’re doing it in the first place. Many people use a number of different methods, a lot of which don’t scar. People who have not gone through the experience or know very little about it are quick to assume they will be big, deep cuts when this is not always the case and a stereotype to harming.

Never ever self-harm okay? It’s not a healthy thing for you to engage in If you have any problems, you must share it with the different people around you, I’m sure they’d be willing to help

Feel free to pm about anything!! Id love to make new friends
