short sleeves and scars
I stopped SHing about a year ago. Things seemed to be going ok. There's been a lot of changes at work recently and it's been hard for everyone to get the work done. I applied for a job working in a different section and got it, unfortunately the only shirts they provide are short sleeved. I only ever wear long sleeves and never roll them up.
I saw my manager to ask about long sleeves but they can't get them. She asked me why I wanted them and, although I hadn't intended to, I told her about my scars. She was fantastic, very supportive. She said I can talk to her any time and she'll try to help.
Since telling her, I have thought more about SHing again. I had a bit of a meltdown the other day and got really upset. I know SH would have made me feel calmer. I now have elastic bands round my wrist in the hope they'll stop me cutting again. I didn't intend to tell anyone about this. I thought I had beaten it and had more control over the urges. Now I'm not sure.
