Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

Paralysed is stuck in my head...
I can't keep going with these scars...
Please tell me there are more users with a similar situation out there?







I am definitely safe. Just feeling alone rn...

Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

Goodnight everybody...
I'll be safe, but these "scars" are affecting me deeply...

Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

@xXLexi_Lou122Xx I'm sorry that I don't 100% understand, but by scars do you mean scars as in physical marks, or the memory of the song lyrics that you wrote on your arm? 

I might be able to give suggestions but there are different things that work for each one...

Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

@Tiny_leaf
They are scars by memory, because I'm too scared to actually make marks physically in that area.
If I write the lyrics to 'Paralysed' on my arm, everyone can see it, unless it's hidden under my jumper. But when I take a shower every night, and the pen comes off, I still see it. It's like it's etched into my arm, but not literally.

Does that make sense? It's kinda hard to put it into words...

I'm feeling a little better today...
Yesterday was a little distressing. My friends kept trying to confront me, and trying talk to me, so I was definitely stressed out.

Anyway, what suggestions do you have?

Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

@xXLexi_Lou122Xx yeah, I know what you mean.

One thing you could do is maybe start writing the lyrics on paper instead? I know it wouldn't fix it, but it might give the memory some more time to fade slightly. Plus you can throw the paper away after if you want to.

Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

I'm sorry @Tiny_leaf....
It's a bit more complicated than that.... :/
It's like a self-harming method... If I think about it that way,

In a way, I treat that particular pen that way anyway...
It's really hard to explain....
All I can say without anyone thinking I'm crazy, is...
I can't just write it on paper. Even if it's not on my arm, I can still see the words...

Hi @xXLexi_Lou122Xx ,

 

I hope you are feeling ok this morning. I just had to edit your post slightly as it may have been triggering for other members. It sounds like you are going through a lot at the moment, I am glad you're sharing with the community! It's very brave to be so open and honest. Does anyone else know how you're feeling?

I’m so sorry @xXLexi_Lou122Xx! I always miss when you make a new thread and that’s why I don’t reply.. 

Hope you’re doing ok Heart 

i haven’t read through your thread yet but I will sometime today

Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

That's okay @Bananatime04...
I didn't tag you because I made for people who can try to answer it, and I didn't want to put pressure on you to post.

Re: TW?: Permanent scars that only I can see...

No I love talking to you and giving my opinion @xXLexi_Lou122Xx ! But I just didn’t see that you made a new thread so I couldn’t do that. 

I never feel pressure to post if it’s on someone else’s thread.. just sometimes on my thread when I’ve got a lot of people to reply to and I feel like I can’t 

Sorry Lexi
