« on: April 10, 2012, 11:55:44 PM »
I have asked this question before but not really got an answer so i think that it was unrelated to the area it was in which is why am going to post this question here.

my mum knows i self harm but thinks it has happened in my sleep

should i be honest and tell her the real truth even though i would rather stick to the lie

 Speaking as a mum, i think you should try and be honest with her. She will want to help you and it's harder for her to do that if she only knows half of what's happening. She will still love you and will be proud of you that you have opened up to her.

thanks i think she already knows but is waiting for me to say and i feel if she finds out the truth then am not the one who has the power as i would rather not say anything or tell her rather than it be found out. The only problem is when i go to talk about it i cant say much other than yes, no and i'm fine

Hey :)
As a mum myself, I would want you to tell me rather than find out another way. I understand that it is not easy but once you tell her she will be able to support and help you, this does not necessarily mean that you will lose control of things, believe me I do not feel in control of my daughters SH at all! I found out about my daughter by seeing her marks and what upset me the most was feeling that she felt she couldnt tell me. Obviously I dont know your mum but I'm sure she will appreciate your honesty and bravery in telling her.
Here if you want to talk  :;):
