So I decided to do the “Share Your Story” tag to give you all a little glimpse into my life.
-I started self harming when I was 13 and managed to stop when I was 17. Then I started back again last December so it’s been a total of 5 years or so. I use to work a lot outside as a kid and ended up getting cut on some wire that my Dad and I were using to make a fence. It hurt of course, but at the same time it felt good - and that mesmerized me. I broke a 1 blade shaving razor and tried it… and that’s how it came to be.
-I smoke cigarettes and I tried burning myself with them a few times on my arms. It doesn’t give me the same relief that cutting does, but I still do it from time to time when I get that urge.
-All the green dots are where my Dad physically abused me. He would yank me around by my hair, hit my legs, butt, and back with the belt buckle, and he hit me in the side a couple times. He broke my ring finger by grabbing my hand when I went to do something (I really don’t remember what I was trying to do…) and once he kicked me down the stairs because I was moving too slow apparently.
-The one on my neck is from getting my tonsils taken out as a kid. The dots on my bellybutton and lower abdomen was from a surgery to remove an ovarian cyst - to which they removed the whole ovary so now I’m lopsided ;). The dot on my forehead is from a “brain surgery” or a surgery to remove a tumor on my pituitary gland.
So there’s some things to get to know me, ContainedConfessions - or rather, Kim. If you would like to know more then shoot me a question in my ask box.
