Default Ol' Scars

I have suffered a few instances of physical abuse during my life which involved being hit with whatever sharp object came to hand, cut once with a sharp kitchen knife, and often having wounds infected from having to leave them uncovered. I now have very ugly raised scars all over my chest, back and about halfway down my thigh. I hate undressing because I have to look at them. Is there any way besides disassociating myself in which I can stop unpleasant recalls of these events due to seeing the scars?

What I did was got a tattoo sleeve put on my chosen arm. It was mainly where I afflicted most my damage. Little white cloud scars everywhere, but you can't see them when drenched in ink. Also go get some vitamin E oil pills. Take 2 everyday. Get some rally good scar hiding lotion. Eventually you stop noticing them unless your dwelling on the situations and not the wounds.

i agree with jaillith.

i was working as a tattoo artist for a while, and we have a achieved very good results.

i'd suggest you pick an image that gives you hope and meaning, and which power you will want to keep forever close to you, and use it as a symbol of strength rather than sadness.

i have helped create several of those, and will be glad to again if you will be so inclined :)

I'm not old enough to get a tattoo yet - I'm only fourteen. :) I will look at that in the future, but I really just want them to fade a little since they're so obvious. Thanks. :)
