    Hi, recently there have been many rumours about me saying that I self harm but I don't. They don't believe me and everyone keeps coming up to me and asking 'Is it true you self harm?' And it's frustrating. I'm not sure who started the rumour but I burnt my wrist in cooking at the start of the year and people are now saying that I used a rubber to self harm when it's a scar from a burn. I don't know what to say to people as they don't believe me. Does anyone have any advice they can give to me, if so it would make a massive difference :)

    You cant really stop rumours, I suggest talking to your friends and anyone close to you to reassure them it isnt true. And sadly that is all you can do but it will fade after a while x
