How do you tell someone that you're a cutter? That the few faded scars visible on your wrist are the tip of the proverbial iceberg, that some days the only way to calm your spiralling thoughts is to drag a blade across your skin until everything slows with steady drip of blood?
Genuinely asking, here. I'm maybe-dating somebody, and I want to tell them, it's important to me, but I do not talk about this, have never told anybody, and I have no idea how. I tried, actually opened my mouth to say the words, but I froze up, felt sick and scared, and wound up saying something so banal I can't even remember what it was. Advice? Help? Please?
