For sure. I've been pretty good about harming (cutting) where it wont be seen so often. Though summer limits that. I started years ago (and still now) with hitting though, and black eyes tend to be
a lot harder to explain. There are only so many excuses before it all seems ridiculous. Luckily most ppl take your excuses at face (hah!) value because its easier than actually confronting the issues. Which, im super ok with. But ya, it becomes a balance i'd rather not have to play. I'd rather say ya, this is it, can we all ignore and move on now? I find others empty worry tedious. And ultimately disingenuous. Everyone is different though. Eh. Everything is about finding that balance, no?

Not so much immune, but when I harm, I'm usually dissociating, cutting brings me back out of dissociation temporarily, but then almost immediately after, I'm back to dissociating again. So I'd be cutting to feel something, but even feeling it was so, so brief.

No, no worries, we're here to talk about it.

Let it go.
Without (forum) rules, we all might as well be up in a tree flinging our crap at each other.
