Telling the parents
« on: May 29, 2012, 08:23:20 PM »
I've really decided than I am fed up of hiding my scars. I've sacrificed/ waster 6 years avoiding holidays, staying in my room all summer , being anti social. I'm really done with it. considering I haven't had a sh relapse in just under a year I really feel I need to tell them . I just can't keep this a secret anymore, it's so hard to keep secrets. only thing is I just don't feel comfortable talking to my parents about stuff like this. I'm not a teen anymore and I just don't want to hide anymore.
anyone got any advice on how I can handle this ?

Firstly, have your parents had any suspicions that you've self harmed?

No, I'm pretty sure they have no idea.

Do you have quite a good relationship with your parents?

fairly. but the thought of them knowing is petrifying, even if I am in recovery. we get on well but I'm very private, even towards my parents, I hate them knowing anything personal about me, purely through my own discomfort.

I can understand you're worry because I am in a similar situation really and it's not at all easy. You to seem to have come to the decision that you want to tell them because that will make your life easier, which is understandable. Do you think you could sit down with them and see where things go from there?
