feeling trapped about my situation - December 1st 2017, 08:24 PM

[SIZE="a"]Hi guys,

I wondered if anyone could give me some advice... Ive had a lot going on recently and due to it I started to self harm as it helped me with my situations but I want to open up to my mum but I don't know how to.. I'm constantly wearing long sleeves because if she sees them I feel like she may be angry at me... also I work in a food place and I'm starting again next week and I have to wear shirts because its uniform and we cant wear tops underneath of jumpers on top either, so they will be noticible, i don't want to be judged and i don't want people to see them but i need to work and i cant cover them up..

anyone got any suggestions or advice..

many thanks.[/size]

Hey there.
In my younger years I struggled with that myself. We are scared to tell others because they may not understand and become angry because they do not understand. But keeping this a secret will eat you up. You need help and I am happy to assist you. If I were you, I would definitely start with telling your mother. Then she can help guide you onto a path of recovery and to encourage you. Our mothers love us more than we know. And they would do anything to help us if we were in need. It is scary telling the truth I know, I've been there with my depression.
And depending on how deep the cuts i would cover it with a bandage if it is all in one spot. If it is scattered put some makeup on the cuts that aren't too bad and bandages where they are needed.
I hope I helped some.
You can message me anytime!
