My dr knows I broke my hand when I was in a rage fit but no one else.
He has changed my meds so hopefully this will go away soon before it gets out of hand again.
I think you want to know if your the only one who just tries to make excuses about the unexplained injuries you have? Blame it on the kitty? I have not done that. However, I have heard of others doing so. Making any excuse possible , or hiding the self harm in any way they can. I have hid the SI before. That is also a common thing to do. It is not a unusal thing to do. We do not like to talk about SI to anyone, and we try to keep it from others, and do not want people asking about it. Espeically, after not Self Harming for a very long time . It happened to me like that too. I kept it hidden , that I started Si'ing again . The therapist did not know. When he finally caught on, his face dropped to the floor. i had been wearing a jacket for months, but it was the fall season. my right arm was covered in SI.
Self Harmers are masters at hiding it. I hope it will go away for you soon, before it gets out of hand. I am still waiting .
