I have recently been taken out of school (OD) and the pyschyatrists did recommend hospital. I know I cannot stay at home as I am unsafe and have thoughts of suicide, running away, etc. I think hospital could be for the best but my mum is very against the idea and said it'd be horrible for her. Surely it is better for her to be upset by my admission than something like SH but she really wants me to be at home. She doesn't know how bad this is getting and it is hardly like I can go up to her and say, "Mum, I'm going to run away" or anything. The SH is getting worse, I hide it from her when I have stitches and medical attention. I feel that for me it is either hospital or suicide. I really think I should go but she thinks it is only for her sake that I want to go, which isn't the case although I genuinely think it'd benefit her and my twelve year old brother too. If there people who are familar with hospital, either themselves or family, I would like to hear your point of view. ???
