They all know. - July 15th 2013, 07:06 AM

Yesterday I texted to tell her everything, the self harm, how I'm feeling and that I need help. But she panicked and called my mum crying her eyes out. Mum woke me up and we talk about it. So now my family know.

Hey Megan,

I think you should be proud of yourself for having the courage to tell someone about your self harm. I know it can be hard when people find out about your self harm but it can also be a good thing. If your family is aware of your self harm they can be there to support. Having a support network is really important for anyone. I know that having my family find out about my self harm was really hard but it was beneficial because my parents got me into counseling and they were there to give me support. Remember that your family loves you and only wants the best for you.

Try and keep your head up and if you need anything please feel free to PM/VM me.

Hi there.

I know that it can be really scary talking to people about low mood and self harming and having people know that you're going through it, but I think it's really good that you spoke to your friend about it - she clearly cares about you to ring your mum. And I hope that you can find it in you to talk to your mum too because she loves and cares about you and I'm sure she will do anything to help you if she can, but you have to make her aware of what is going on for you right now. Having support from the people around us can have a really positive impact on us so even though it might be hard, I think it's really good and I hope you start to talk to people and allow them to support you because you don't deserve to go through this alone. And if you ever want to talk to us about anything, we'll be here for you too.

I hope that you're well,

"Only in the dark, can you see the stars..."
