Exclamation How can I hide my self harm scars...?!?

I've been cutting myself for quite a while now and believe me, I'm trying to stop. I'm getting help for my depression--I'm seeing a psychiatrist--but for now, I need a way to hide my scars. I have a chorus concert tomorrow and I am required to wear a short sleeved dress. No one will be able to see my thighs or ankles, but I can't wear anything over my arms, and I'm FREAKING OUT. The last time I cut my wrists was about a week ago, so the cuts are healing, but they are still very visible (they will probably always be) and I can't help anticipating that EVERYONE is going to see EVERYTHING. That CAN'T happen. It's only going to make things worse. Does anyone know of any way I can hide them???

well, if they are on your arms, and as long as they are not open, you can use foundation(think that is what it is called) to make them blend in. that is for the concert. as for other wise, use wristbands and bracelets. found this hint when looking around: use leather cuffs, like 2 or 3 inch wide ones.

Yeah you could always use makeup to cover it (I never tried so I cant go in detail) Are people going to be behind you? If not maybe you can put your hands behind your back? (Depends on what your doing)
Haha sorry! I was probably of no help... But if there is a chance that you cant do anything to hide your cuts well if people cant accept you then they arent even worth worrying about.

"I flushed another one of the blades again. I cant bring myself to get rid of them all. Its too much. They were the reason why I was able to carry on and pretend to be normal from day to day. Its like throwing away a part of me. They allowed me to deal with me and everything in life; almost like throwing something that saved you away. Provided it got to the point where I just wanted to die and ill have the scars forever, they’re a part of me. My battle wounds. Proof that I can beat just about anything after this. As a matter a fact, everything else shouldn’t even bring a tear to me. I cut myself and felt like I wanted to die. Nothing can top that in terms of getting into your head and making you upset. I did it, I can do it. Everything should be taken with a grain of salt. Fuck anyone that makes you upset or makes you want to go back to it. You can do it. I can do it."

I have a unique way of selfharm. I hang razors against a wall like paintings and *accidently* fall into them. They're so deep on my upper back I can't move my wider than normal shoulders anymore, cuz they cut some of my major back muscles. I stopped for about 4 months, but just came out of an amazing relationship badly, and I've read that girls think scars are somehow amazingly hot, and I think I may relapse now. Please help!?!? Girls, what do you you think? They're all over my back. I have a... Higher rated than normal body, many, MANY people say I could be James Maslow's twin, and I wanna go to the beach again, but ill look like a dork with... my body and a shirt on.
