Hey there,

It can be difficult to decide to tell someone that you have started self harming again. I know how worried you might be about this effecting your mom but I think she would prefer knowing about your struggle than being kept in the dark.

If you feel comfortable talking to your mom face to face I think that is the best way you can tell her. You will probably want to talk to her when she is in a respectively good mood. And, just explain to her some of the things that have been going on and how that has caused you to self harm again. Let her know that you could really use her support through this and see what she has to say. Hopefully she will do her best to support you.

If talking to her face to face isn't an option than you can write everything down and leave her a note somewhere she is bound to see it. I've written my dad notes in the past and left them places that would be easy to find. It was easier talking to him about what was written in the note once it was out in the open than having to bring it up face to face.

I hope that this helped and I am wishing you the best of luck.

Hello: Self-harm is a difficult and misunderstood subject and opening up about it can be very hard, but I do think it's best to let your mother know. Try to tell her in a way that you feel would best help her understand what you are dealing with. Best wishes.
