Unhappy Afraid..... - July 25th 2011, 10:11 PM

So yesterday, my mother decided that she was gonna clean out my room. This was fine with me. I was pretty sure that I had nothing to hide. But while I was at my friends house, my mom texted me and told me that while she was cleaning, she found a few journals and didn't know what they were. so, she looked in them and found some entry's i had written. So, most of them were about how I was cutting and really depressed.... This means that two years or more of keeping this secret just went down the toilet.

I told her that as of now, I don't want to go see a counselor. But, now I'm afraid. I'm not completely sure why, I'm just scared. I hate that she knows and now, she will be paranoid if I get any sort of cut on me......this is awful

If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.

I'm sorry that your mom found out this way. I know this wasn't the ideal way for her to find out. But maybe it'll turn out better than your imagining. I hope that everything works out okay. If you need anything at all, feel free to PM me.

I know it can feel very difficult when these sorts of problems come to the surface. Do not worry so much though. If your mother does become upset or excessively worrisome, it is out of concern for you and your happiness. You're not a bad person because of this.

I'm sorry that she found out that way, and I can understand not wanting to go see a counselor, but it could help you more than you know, trust me. When I first told my mom, it wasn't planned at all, I broke down crying in my kitchen and telling her everything. I went to a counselor and it helped so much. It's someone to talk to, that you can tell everything to with no judgement.

If you ever need someone to talk to you can PM me.

A counselor would really help. My mom saw a slip to the counselor on the floor when she was looking for a pair of shoes for my sister. I told her he gave me that when I got send there for my behavior. I really took it myself.

Ok, the exact same thing happened to me.
My parents found my diary and freaked out.
They yelled at me for 3 days straight.
It was bad at the time, but i promise, it does get better.
I had to deal with them for a little while, but then things got a lot better and i started feeling better.
I promise it'll be ok.
PM me if you need to talk.

Re: Afraid..... - July 29th 2011, 11:13 PM

Im 14 , I SH and got depressing too, the way she found out was rushed and no the best way it could of been.

But yeah it would of been better to tell her earlier, but at the end of the day i know how hard it is to talk about SH , so telling somebody is really hard.
My mum knows about me and yet she doesn't know everything.
Im still trying to get the courage to get counselling for help.
So if you try, you wont be alone, i will be in the same situation?
Pm me if you want help or someone to talk to, im always here x

It serves a lot of functions in my life. I use it as a way to punish myself, I use it as a way to medicate myself, I use it for the tension release when things get too strong or too built up. –ditto

Faking a smile like always

- Pm me if you need help or a friend xx
