Anonymous asked: I was wondering, ever since I have made the most recent cuts on my legs, my thigh muscles have been acting and feeling a bit strange. Do you know if that could be an affect of self harm?
scarletneedscoffee asked: To the ANON who posted asking about scars and tattoos. The artist can tell you. I just got one 2 months ago over 158 deep deep scars. I am not going to lie, it hurt like nothing else. Tattooing scar tissue is a zillion times more painful than a regular tattoo. I have 9, this isn't a chicken shit testimony. Some artists cannot do it, others won't do it... but they CAN tell you whether...
Anonymous asked: Okay, so I have been clean for about a month but my scars are still quite red and raised. I was recommended bio oil by a friend of mine who works in a pharmacy. Its working well for some and then not at all for others. With summer around the corner I don't want questions about the scars because none of my family know about them, and only a select few friends know about them, is there anything...
Anonymous asked: to the anon about tattoos and scars: some tattoo artists have no problem tattooing over scars but i've heard of a lot declining the request. so you just really need to ask around and make sure you're not going to be judged either.
chelsawkward-deactivated2012012 asked: To the person who just said that if the scar is raised, you need stitches: this is not always true. Don't freak people out.
ihaveastalkernow-deactivated201 asked: Yes, You can tattoo over scars. I know plenty of poeple who have done so.
dead-man-deactivated20120210 asked: To the anons: if a scar is raised, it usually means you needed to get stitches!

alicetripsonacid asked: To the anon who aksed the recent question, my boyfriend used to cut really deep and he never got stitchs so his cuts were pink/red for a long while since he never got stitches. what the stitches do is align your skin back in place so your body can heal it much easier. without the stitches your body is creating extra scar tissue and skin to repair it. it will just take a while. make sure you clean...
Anonymous asked: To the last anon: I have a scar similar in size to yours, and I did get stitches. It happened at the end of May, and it's still pretty pink.
Anonymous asked: I did my deepest cut back in February (I've been trying to stop since then but can't..). The scar is still pink (sometimes a redish color). It was probably about 1/4 of an inch deep (maybe less I'm not sure) and about 1 inch long... I think I should have gotten stiches but didn't.. I was just wondering if this is normal... Is it going to fade soon (or at least stop being pink)?
unnecessaryexistentialcrisises asked: for anyone who has ever been asked, "why are you /ruining/ your beautiful skin?" my best friend and girlfriend, even though she DESPISES the reasons they're there, thinks that my scars are beautiful, because they're a part of me. you CAN find people who think that your skin and body are perfectly beautiful as is, scars and all, just have faith. <3 [but please understand that...

Anonymous asked: is it normal for me to want the scars to stay?
I never thought this blog would mean as much to me as it does. I love all of you, never forget that. <3
wishthatwecould asked: You seem like the kind of person who is there when people need to vent... I'm not trying to take viewers from you, but I just thought I'd throw it out there that I'm also here for anybody if they need to vent about anything. I also suffer from self harm, so I know how people feel.
Anonymous asked: I have come to the point where I dont even know why I should stop. is there a reason?
advicefortheselfharmer asked: I realize you get a lot of questions about advice, or things other than triggering and you don't always have the answers. Please send them my direction if you feel the need. I think I can offer them what they're looking for.
Anonymous asked: (don't answer if not anon) i have over-come self harm. i keep my blades behind my bed in a little tin with tissues all over it, today i threw away the tissues and got rid of my blades. i am so proud of myself, i can do it and so can anyone who is self harming, please stay strong and stop<3
Just in case anyone missed them...
I made an ‘about me’ page and a ‘picture information’ page. Here are the links: http://thelifeofaselfharmer.tumblr.com/aboutme http://thelifeofaselfharmer.tumblr.com/pic-info If you feel like I should add more to them or make another page, feel free to leave me a message.
Anonymous asked: as much as i can relate to this blog, it has triggered thoughts of me wanting to start cutting again. i think you should post things about stopping rather than things that happen or what people do when they cut. it'd give people more inspiration to stop.
Anonymous asked: How do you make your pictures?
Anonymous asked: can i submit a picture of cuts orr something?
Anonymous asked: I'm a failure. I need to die. Will anyone care? I doubt it. I need help, I need someone to tell me things will be ok. I want to cut so badly, but I promised myself I wouldn't. What can I do to avoid the urge? I want to be ok.
Anonymous asked: I think you should keep your picture designs consistant. I like the recent one you've used, with the Century Gothic book. It looks nice (:
a-voice-stentorian asked: I'm unfollowing you guys because having not cut in 93 days (the longest I've gone since I was 15- I'm 19 now), I no longer live the life of a self harmer. I wish everyone out there the best of best of luck, believe me when I say it gets better <3
chubbynipples asked: i just have to say that this is probably the blog that i can relate to most out of all of the ones that i follow. self harm used to be an addiction for me, i did it all the time. i overcame it and now haven't purposely harmed myself for over half a year. everybody stay strong, you are worth it. don't ever think that you aren't.
The queue is empty...
Anyone have any ideas for pictures? Ask or Submit
I made an 'about me' page.
Here is the link: http://thelifeofaselfharmer.tumblr.com/aboutme If you want to tell me something or you want me to add anything to it, leave a message.
Does anyone want to know about me?
Like if I was to add an ‘about me’ page… would anyone want read it? Or want me to say certain things about myself on it? Please give your opinion on this. Thank you.
Anonymous asked: A good way to become more optimistic is to write down 10-20 good things that happen to you every day. Nothing bad, just good stuff. And it can be something as simple as somebody who always annoys you leaving you alone, or something like how you got an A on a test you really studied for. Just some advice I want to share. :)
simply-krystle asked: If anyone ever needs anyone to talk too, my ask is always open! And I love helping people and listening to their problems. I've been told I'm good at giving advice.. You tell me if I'm good at it or not! :D
penislut asked: I currently suffer from chronic depression, anxiety, and bi-polar. It was a couple years back when I started to be sad. I was never happy anymore. I've been on dozens of medications and I see therapists to try and get better but nothing seems to work. I'm sad every second of the day and I can't control it. This is to everyone out there who follows this blog. I can relate. I know...
