RE: Physical scar from suicide attempt
Thanks guys. Very long story.

I have been to therapy. I cannot afford more atm, but the martial arts is less expensive, and quite frankly, more effective for me right now.

Yes, I've thought of getting a tattoo. I'm thinking a pheonix feather.

I'm around kids a lot though, and some of them are teens. On one hand, I know many of them struggle with depression almost by default. On the other hand, I don't want the subject almost literally thrown in their face every time they come to class.

Scars are tattoos but with better stories.

Just be sure to first spell check any text you get tattooed.

Feathers are great for covering things up!

Tell me if you want to check any Chinese character that you'd like to get tattooed with.

No kidding.

You definitely won't want a failed one like these:

RE: Physical scar from suicide attempt
I would go with a tattoo and would suggest something that reminds you of martial arts since that seems to be the thing that is helping to heal that wound. Feathers are nice too. Check out deviant art

As you can well imagine, this has left a significant scar.

I know there are many people who have thought of suicide and have even come close to it or at least toyed with it. Most, however, are able to keep their secret more easily.

A horrendous scar on my arm is something that comes with a stigma. I have arthritis in my wrist as well, so this gives me a valid excuse to wrap it, especially since I was wrapping it before to begin with for that reason. But sometimes I forget to wrap it. I have to be really careful. If someone sees it, I'm afraid they'll become alarmed and I don't need that and neither do they. I'm glad I wasn't successful, but this is kinda rough. Plus, sometimes I see it and start getting flashbacks...

You know, that scar is not only a reminder of a place you never ever want to go back to, but also symbol of the strength you had to have to get away from that place. I also have a scar, mine isn't from a suicide attempt, and I can hide it. (It is on the left side of my stomach)I used to stare at that scar for hours and hate it and hate myself and hate the person who put it there. My life was filled with so much hate back then. Now, though, when I see it I think about how brave I was to get out of that place, I think about how I will never ever be in a place like that again.
It was actually my grandmother who helped me see it that way. She told me every time I see it to say "I am strong, I am beautiful, and I am free" and it seems silly at first talking about yourself out loud when you're all alone lol, but it really helped. Anyways, I don't think you should see that scar as a bad thing.
