Conditions with symptom: 'snapping'
So I've been self harming almost a year now,i have over 40 scars of each on my thighs.i have a few faded ones on my wrists.I made it threw the summer by faking situations so i wouldn't have to swim.And i need find a way to get ride of them.I live in fear everyday of my family seeing them.I need help bad.Im working on how to stop cutting but snapping rubber bands are starting to leave scars too! :( my point is...Is there a way to make my scars go away without my family having to find out?
Hi Gianna, I self harmed off and on for a few years (throughout high school) but I somehow never let it get too out of control since I was still worried about people seeing the scars and judging me for it and thinking I was crazy. There was one time I went to try on homecoming dresses with my grandma and had a lot of fresh cuts on my shoulder ish area and I had to put a huge bandaid over it so she wouldn't see and I blamed it on my cat lol. One thing learned throughout my high school years was that once the wound healed up and was no longer a scab, if I laid in a tanning bed every once in a while, the scars would be a bit less visible. I'm not fond of the over tanned look, but the uv rays also helped with minor acne and I only went once a week or so. If you do this along with vitamin E like crazy, your scars should be at least a tiny bit less noticeable. These suggestions above are really only good for minor scars but will possibly help if yours are a bit more severe, and it never hurts to try all of your options! Once I was out of high school and no one really paid much attention to anyone else or really cared about what other people were doing, I began slowly declining and things got way out of hand. Being a freshman in college meant, for me at least, a lot of smoking and drinking which meant a lot of drunken mental breakdowns. My forearms are now covered from wrist to elbow in scars, and I've been out of high school for 3 years at this point. Things got so bad that I had to come clean to my parents and tell them what I had been struggling with. I was afraid of what I might do to myself if I stayed in school, so I ended up going home in the middle of the second semester. Coming clean to my parents was the best thing I've ever done because after I got through that, which I considered to be the most daunting task, I was able to slowly tell more people about it. Now my family members and friends know, and I even wear whatever I want in public. I learned that if someone really cares about you, they will only talk about things as much as you are comfortable with, and they will take as much time as you need. At this point in my life I am 20 years old and no longer embarrassed about my past because I realize that I was, and still am really darn strong. I love myself and my scars, which are two things I never thought I would ever be able to say! I've even gotten a nice little rose tattoo to cover a few of them and I tell everyone that I'm just decorating the canvas. I really hope you are able to get through this journey. If you ever need to talk about anything, I will always be here. I promise I'm not a creepy stranger (lol), and I will never judge you or call you crazy. Keep growing, you beautiful little flower. You are so loved.
Try bio oil
Two months ago, one day was masturbating for long hours really and was trying force erection and ejaculation and suddenly I've felt like snapping sound in the penis followed by sudden loss of erection. penis felt numb and sore. Went to emergency room they said give it a rest and nothing been serious so its not bend or anything took ibuprofen. it settled down. tried masturbating again but weak erection sensation partly lost. feeling that my penis will snap again from the base. Penis feel lifeless now and discomfort but no pain or curve. but it feels different. Have I damaged nerve or anything there? Is this serious? I am quite anxious about this problem I've lost the sensation and erection firmness its been over 2 months now!!. Thanks
