What is a flotation tank?
500 kg of Epsom salts are added to 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).
The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t, in effect “fooling” the brain into believing that the person is floating in mid-air.

It’s like a highly addictive drug. It’s hard to stop once you start. Even if it’s just once. You may think, “Oh I can control it” or “I’ll only cut here, no one will see”.
I received a message telling me “your scars are beautiful”
Maybe they thought they were helping, or tried to come up with something to “cheer me up”
Stop thinking that self harm is something romantic
Because no guy is going to sweep you off your feet and all in love with your scars
Sure, he may feel bad for you, but a relationship is not based on pity.
A guy will fall in love with you for being yourself, not because of scars.
I always thought I could get away with just one cut, or two, or three because it’s easy to hide, no one will see. You can easily just pull down your sleeves, or stack up some bracelets.
But a friend told me to not be scared in showing my wrists anymore.
Because now if i show them, it’s like “Hey, i know i have scars, but i still got through it right? It may have not been the best way, but I’m still here, and that’s better then being dead” But i would not say it is something “beautiful”
