I told my mum - April 15th 2013, 07:51 AM

Yesterday I told my mum about the 2 most recent overdoses and self harm and basically how I have thoughts that make it feel like I have to hurt myself. She already knows that I've overdosed before (only knows about 1 time) and self harmed before and about the anxiety and depression. She cried . I cried. But it's all out in the open now.
I feel so guilty. I know she's really worried about me now. She said she thinks I should be in hospital. I feel so bad for making her worry about me and for some stupid reason, the guilt is making me want to self harm which obviously isn't a good thing to do in this situation.
How do I get my mum to stop worrying about me? I'm too scared to let her know when I'm doing worse because I hate making her upset.

Hi, Ella.

I'm sorry your mom is upset, however I think you're incredibly amazing and brave for telling her this and she worries so much because she must really love you. That's a great thing to have but I understand how you wouldn't want her to worry so much. I think that even though it upsets her, you should still tell her how you're feeling because she's your mother, she'd wanna listen to you instead of being kept in the dark whenever you're feeling your worst. I think she'd be more upset and worried over that. Just tell her what you're feeling and when you're truthfully feeling okay, be honest. She'll be a lot happier when you're having a good day.

I know this will sound bad, but I found that when I feel guilty over something similar to this because someone else is upset, and I wanna self-harm, it's overwhelming at first but it honestly helped me overcome self-harm and recover. It helped me cope through the bad feelings without self-harm and work on not having to rely on self-harm.

Stay Strong <3

Thanks for the reply. I wrote all over myself instead of cutting and now I'm planning to do an hour on my exercise bike when I feel like I want to self harm. My mum and best friend both think it would be good for me to go into hospital for a while, but I can't just take loads more time off work and I can't just walk into the psych ward and demand to be admitted.

Wow, you're doing so well trying not to self-harm. That's amazing and I'm very proud of you, you should be proud of yourself as well.

Well, couldn't you talk to people at work and ask for some time off? You are important.
