Sports carnival. - July 25th 2009, 12:53 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So we had our school sports carnival and we had to dress up in house colours. Because it was a sports carnival I couldn't really wear a jumper or a long sleeved shirt to cover my scratches and cuts. No one seemed to notice them until I completed the 400m and nearly passed out. I then had to sit in the shade with the first aid teacher for a while. While I was sitting there one of my teachers came over. She noticed the scratches and cuts and asked what they were from. I sort of freaked out then and just said that they were normal scratches but I could tell that she knew they were from something else and that she didn't believe me. Now I feel so bad and guilty about lying to her but I don't know whether to tell her the truth or not.

you need to tell her the truth.
it might be hard, but you have to.
she could get you some help for it.
it would be the right thing to do.

good luck(=

I just don't know how to tell her. It just seems so hard.

i know it seems hard, but i know you can do it.
just think about how much telling her will help you.
maybe not for awhile,
but once you get the help and you can stop harming yourself,
then things will be really good.

But I am too worried about how she will react and the fact she will treat me different after it to say anything. I just don't want her to know at all.

if you don't want her knowing, then don't tell her.
but get help somehow.
please.

maybe instead the school consulor?
but it seems she was concerned enough to ask you
which means she cares.
if you dont want to tell her about cutting how about going to her
for help when you need it or something, maybe eventually you can trust her and tell her.

either way you should try and get help (:
