I've been clean for a week after my slip up. I have no desire of harming myself right now. But my school homecoming is around the corner and I'm scared. All the girls dresses are sleeveless. 

Long sleeves have been my savior for the few past months. My mom won't let me wear a cardigan or light sweater over a dress.

Luckily, I did find some makeup to cover my scars up. But I'm still uncomfortable without having that extra layer of fabric over my arms. Fear wells up inside me, I'm always afraid someone will look. Especially my family. 

As I said before, several of my friends are aware of my self harm. But three of them aren't (I haven't told them for multiple reasons).

I'm alright with two of them finding out, they wouldn't mind at all, but there is one friend in particular. I really don't want her to know. (Again, for multiple reasons) I'm afraid she will see and question me. Any possible help?

unfortinantly, my scars are only on my lower leg. But whenever I walk with shorts, no one seems to notice. I would suggest trying to position your arms so that the scars aren't as visible, maybe look for a dress with long sleeves? Or at last, try to find some excuses like

"My cat went wild." "I tripped and fell into the bushes (This one worked well for me)"

I hope I am of help.

Are your scars in a position that jewelry would partially cover them? Or perhaps a wrap/shawl could cover your arms part of the time? That would be more formal than a cardigan

Lightriso, would long gloves be possible? Don't know what you're wearing, but I was thinking something that would be retro maybe. My daughter's homecoming dance is tonight, so I know that dresses are a bit skimpy. I agree with the bracelets, I think they're in style. 

Good luck, and I hope you can have a good time regardless.

      Okay so my group of friends got into a huge argument today, I witnessed it over text.
      But one of my really close friends (one of the best people I've ever known), she got really mad and relapsed after being clean for so long.
      I feel really bad, I don't know what to do, I want the people I love to be the happiest people in the world.
      I'm not triggered, I'm just asking for advice. I want my best friend to be happy.

      I have tried to stop self harming and it's not working. I have been cutting for a little over 2 years and have tried to stop multiple times, but with no luck. I had stopped for about 3 months and relapsed about an hour ago. I can't control myself when I feel emotions and I absolutely hate it. I can't talk about it in person, or I break down. Any replies would be nice. I would just like to talk to people that don't know me as a person and have never met me, it helps a lot.

      Okay my honeys, time to Make It Rain. You're our sugar babies and We need all the moneys to make this place swing, so smack that donate button and blow your wad on...
       
      ...oh, hell, I can't keep that crap going. Here's the deal, lovelies. This place is run on half a shoestring and some wishful thinking, along with whatever goodwill members supply to VE in the form of donations. We know that the loon pills and the pdoc appointments set you back, and we don't ask anyone to do anything crazy... but maybe something a little bit fabulous. Even a very few dollars can help keep the lights on here. Without them, one day you may log on to find "404 - Not Found" and then where will we all go to proudly fly our rainbow crazy flags?
      We've been here for twelve years, but the web's a rough-and-tumble place, and squatting here ain't free. It ain't even cheap. If Crazyboards has helped you through a dark time, please consider helping in return. Please, give what you can, when you can.

      The world often doesn't make sense, and we have to make sense of it ourselves. Here's something you can wrap your head around - a simple logical proof: (A) Crazyboards cannot function without donations. (B) The source of those donations is our members. Therefore (C) if members do not donate, Crazyboards will cease to function.
      We know that the mental health care costs a suitcase full, and we don't expect anyone to drop Benjamins on us (though feel free). But even a very few dollars can help keep the lights on here. Without them, one day you may log on to find "404 - Not Found" and then where will we all go to proudly defy the neurotypicals?

      It's that time again, my gloomy ones. The servers don't power themselves. This place is run on half a shoestring and some wishful thinking, along with whatever goodwill members supply to VE in the form of donations - you know, cash. Da moneys. Spondooliks.
      We know that the loon pills and the pdoc appointments set you back; oh, yes, we know. We won't ask you for the Moon. But even a very few dollars can help keep the lights on here.
