She knows - October 23rd 2009, 01:34 AM

I told my mom about my depression, but she doesn't want me on meds right now cause she wants us to find out why I'm depressed and try to fix it, and she doesn't want me ending up on the max dose and it not working after a while. She called our local clinic and they gave her some names of people to have me talk to. I was really relieved that she took it okay, but I haven't told her how bad it is, and she doesn't know I cut myself. I don't know how to tell her, or if I ever even will.

“I can only hope that they’ll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects … I hope that every professional gay will say ‘enough’, come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978

I don't think she needs to know you cut just yet, the important thing is you told her that your depressed which is a great start. Good job

I'm glad you decided to talk to her about it and that's she's trying to help you.

I probably wouldn't tell her you cut just yet, it might be a bit much for her to take at once. However, you should definitely consider tell her in the future. Maybe when you talk to someone, you can tell them and they could tell your mom with you? It might help her deal a little better. Just something to think about!

At any rate, I'm very glad you're going to get help!
