My parents found out. But it's okay.

Recommended Posts

I have been sick for the past few days. My mom was taking care of me and she rolled up my hoodie sleeve and saw my scars. She questioned them and I didn't reply. Then she told me she is not mad, she just wants me to be happy. She took away my razors and told my dad. Both my parents reacted very calm about it, I'm so grateful and blessed to have parents like this. They don't want me to be stressed. They don't want to see me like this.

My mom suggested other coping mechanisms. She also said I could talk to her anytime if something is bothering me.

I might be able to get a counselor sometime.

Your parents did a great job at responding to this! I have found that it's better to have it out in the open with people who are close to me. The fear of being discovered adds a lot of distress, and once people know they can also provide support.

      First of all, happy new year everyone!
      Okay, so I said I was going to do 'No cut December'. And I made it! 
      I realized I'm much more happier without self harm. I even stopped counting the days unconsciously, self harm wasn't a daily thought anymore. Whenever I felt down, hurting myself didn't even cross my mind. 
      So in 2018 I will continue my road to recovery. Thank you all for supporting me on this forum.

      It's the third day of December and I decided I wanted to do this thing called 'No cut December'. I want to recover from self harm, and help others along the way as we get through this journey together. 
      So for the whole month of December, let's try to stay clean. It's a quite a challenge but I'm sure we can do it.

      Ugh. I hate this.
      I just slipped up after being twelve days clean. 
      I noticed I always go a period of time being clean then slip up. This has been happening for months now. 
      For example, I would be two weeks clean then slip up. After that, I would go like a week and a half clean and then slip up.
      I'm so sick of this cycle.

      Today my mom told me she was trying to find a counselor. 
      Today was the first day I wore short sleeves without makeup on my arm.
      Today I don't have to live in fear about people finding out.
