Today, March 1, is National Self-Injury Awareness Day here in the States. (It does not get a Google doodle.)

Prompt #30 in thetendermuse is "Write about a scar, figurative or literal."

This segues nicely into fox1013’s post on self-injury awareness, which people have pointed out of course applies to so many other illnesses as well. Reading it made me want to go back to NHS and work with the Health Ed program. (Okay, what doesn’t make me wanna do that, really?)

I don’t self-injure (have i mentioned that i don’t do pain well?), but i know people who do or have.

So i’m posting this to remind us all. Because i know i need to be better educated about so many things. Because i need to remember that not everyone even knows about all the issues i take for granted.
