i have 6 cut scars on my wrist from when I was young and stupid. What will they say when they see this? I know this automatically disqualifies me from any mental health study but what about physical studies? will i need to track down my medical records?

Some things you should be honest about. Don't screw your health just for a little money. I'm honest about my drinking (5 beers a week or so) and caffeine consumption and haven't had any issues with it. The vitamin and otc drug restrictions are way over kill though..and that's a whole nother thing i wont get into. The scars they might not even see at the physical anyway, but unless they are fresh and they see it i'm sure you'll be fine. Just don't come in full on goth wear and a suicidal tenancies T-shirt
Each clinic is different, or can be, and you cannot assume that if one clinic is OK with it, another clinic will be.
You might have to tell the truth and say that you played roughly as a kid and even joined other kids in playing "pain-tolerance games." But as an adult you realize that the actual scars will last forever but you are not into self harm because of severe lasting psychological issues.
