    ... if you saw cuts down a classmate's arms?

    So I self harm, usually on the same arm, but the cuts can't be seen normally (either on the wrists, or shoulders which are easily tucked away)

    But I don't go through a massive effort of hiding them either. Quite often, say if I'm in a changing room, I'll forget that they're even there/haven't healed over yet. But if you saw strange looking scars on someone, would you think they were a total weirdo? Keep your distance? Discuss it with everyone you know?

    I'm quite quiet and conserved in Uni and don't make conversation often. I wouldn't want more people thinking I'm more of a weirdo than they already do :lol:

    Yeah, I'd ignore it too. I know that for some people, myself included, it's not the sort of thing we really want to discuss.

    I would ignore it, I would not know if they would feel comfortable talking about it and I wouldn't want them to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable.

    I would ignore it. It's not my place to question or judge what other people do/did to their own body.
