I am 28 and I am a self injurer. I used to do it often but then stopped over 2 years ago when I met my current boyfriend. He doesn’t know I had injured in the past. Then just today I was at work and injured.  Now I have to hide it from him until it heals. I don’t know if he could ever stay with me if he ever found out. He knows I am feeling bad and he has done everything to encourage me and love me. But his brother is messed up (more than me apparently) and his brother used to do things like this and because of that he will never talk to his brother again. I am scared he will never look at me the same way again if he knew. So I have to hide my injury for a week from him until it heals and fades away. I just have to stop doing this somehow.
