THIS IS MY STORY:
red-self harm: my self harm began when i was in middle school. but i was good at hiding it.. i only cut behind my knees and ankles bc i could blame it on shaving or sports related incidents. it wasn’t until later that i began cutting on my arms.
purple-burn scars: i have a few burn scars down the back of my arms from culinary school, mainly from grazing or accidentally sitting my arm down on a hot pan.
pink-animal incidents: i fractured my tail bone when the horse i was riding hurdled a fence, causing me to land on the saddle horn.
green-childhood memories: just cuts and scraps and bruises from my many years of playing sports and playing as a kid.
blue-surgery: i have had surgery to remove a cyst on my ovary, and will soon have a corrective surgery on my spine for scoliosis.
yellow-other: i used the yellow to make my tattoos. all of which have a very personal meaning and i love dearly. it’s the closest form of self harm that’s ok…. so i add frequently.
