I've been self harming since I was fifteen. It's been hard to hide and because of this I swore I would have kept the cuts just on one arm. One single arm. And that's what I did for three years. But today, after a really stressful day, seeing there wasn't enough space for more cuts on my left arm, I said "fuck it" and started cutting my right arm too. I think the "keeping the cuts on one arm" rule was to keep a sense of control on it. And now, having my other arm full of cuts makes me feel like I've lost my battle against self harm.
