Hm. It appears as if we both live in Connecticut, so I wonder if our doctor's offices have similar laws.

I know that when I went to the doctor's office and she saw self harm on me, she DID in fact tell my mom because at the time I was a minor which made her required by law to tell, but she didn't go through the whole process of almost admitting me.

However, at the time most, if not all, of my injuries were scars or nearly healed, so I wonder if that is the difference. Could what your doctor have seen have looked severe in his eyes? For instance, were there either deep injuries or a lot of them? Perhaps if that was the case he was concerned for your safety and wanted to have you evaluated to make sure that you were safe.

I think that if they were going to tell your father, though, they would have done it at that time. Maybe they were satisfied enough by your answers to think that you were going to be safe, and you didn't imply you were self harming.

In the future though, remember that you don't deserve to go through this alone and there are people out there who are more than willing to help you through this tough time!

Thanks, I appreciate your reply. There are many scars but they are mostly faded, maybe because there were darker scars close to my veins? im not sure but i can tell you i almost squeezed the stuffing out of my tiger when i was there

most are on my arm but he seen the darker ones on my thighs when they looked for any new wounds
