    How would one go about covering an armful of cuts in the sweltering heat? I'd use a legwarmer like I do sometimes now, but in the summer, that would never work. Thanks!

    hey hun
    if you realy want them to not be visible
    you should stop cutting
    the scars will fade and they wont be noticable
    and it makes me sad when i hear of girls cutting

    but untill you do
    you can use cover up
    like the same stuff you use on your face
    cuz chances are your forearm is close to the same color
    i wouldn't do the whole elaborate arm wear though
    because then people think you're hiding something
    and become suspicious
    but i'm sure cover up will work fine

    Idk. I'm wondering that too.
    i think I'm going to go as long as I can in the thinnest hoodies I have, then just wear a lot of bracelets or try to keep my scars where no one can see them (which sounds dumb. I mean, like, holding my arms a certain way so no one can see them....

    it all depends were u cut
    if on ur wrists try wearing alot of braclets, or thin long-sleeved shirts.
    if on ur legs were thin khaki pants or thin clothed pants
    if on ur stomache just wear regular shirts

    i've been cutting 4 years haven't been caught yet

    Id go with cutting your whole damn arm off that will hide the cuts well. I mean once you do that you can hide your arm whereever you want!

    well what i have done in the past is in the winter i use my wrists
    but when it comes to summer dont do it on your wrists, use your stomach or shoulder then just wear a t shirt when you swim. or just wear alot of bracelets on your wrist. hope i helped.

    there are different ways to cover up something so you can make it invisible.
    Like the given reasons already stated. But I guess you should stop cutting because it's wrong..and I kind of know why..I used to cut, but when my mom saw my scars I quit cutting. You should stop cutting too..it's depressing.:(
    But that's out of topic.
    So..uh..you can try wearing those thin shirts or anything that could reach your cuts. As long as they're comfortable for you to wear and they hide those scars, then go for it. Wish you luck.

    I can't believe how some of you are actually dishing out advice as to how to hide scars. Don't you realise how stupid that is on your part? You're sending out signals that it's 'OK'.

    Instead of dishing it idiot advice, try to get the person in question to stop cutting, as self-mutilation is never the answer to your problems, be their petty or significant.

    The people who say they realise that cutting is bad, but still decide to give advice on how to hide them, and thus be able to continue practicing self-mutilation are the worst. It's disgusting.

    Asshats.

    I'm trying to figure out the same thing. My mom won't let me wear my armwarmers or gloves cos she thinks they're for hiding cuts (which thhey are). So I just wear the at school without her knowing, but what do I do at home? The cover up thing isn't dark enough, doesn't work for me.
