Today’s edition of Best Gore Members Rock is brought to you by Best Gore member themoonlady. Themoonlady is (actually… was) a self harmer and has quite a story to tell. I’ll let her tell it in her own words:
Hi BestGore! I’ve noticed on your site that you occasionally show some user-submitted self harm imagery, and also in a respectable manner. I really like that. On my left arm I have substantial scarring, due to somewhat deep cuts I had made in March of this year.
Just a quick little back story as to why I have them. At the time, I had a lover whom I thought was wonderful and had some nasty mental health issues due to past trauma and abuse. I also have traumatic events under my sleeve in which I am still receiving therapy for, they’re also the reason I started to self harm. I started to self harm in grade 7 by pulling small chunks of my skin out.
Anyways, we had met and thought everything about the other was wonderful and that we could help each other through it. It worked for a while until March, when he attempted suicide by pill overdose. He was in the hospital for a week and my emotions were raw and I was in that state for the entire week, so the gashes were made. Mostly because I wasn’t able to see him, or talk to him at all.
Since March though my harming has gone down a large amount. Mostly because, in April, he had hung himself. His last request to me was to stop, and to heal.
Slightly sappy, I know. So now on my left forearm I have bright red scars. Enjoy.
I protect submitters of exclusive content with zero tolerance for abusive language towards them. Best Gore is the largest repository of exclusive self harming photos because submitters know they can trust me with their pictures. Photos like these would remain unseen if it wasn’t for respect I enforce on Best Gore. Keep it in mind before you comment.
Thank you themoonlady for sharing your story and pictures with us:
