how would i get there? - September 20th 2009, 05:15 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.

there are times when i really want to go to the emergency room and talk to someone about my cutting and eating disorders, but i know my mom would never drive me there without me explaining why i needed to go.
what do i do?


When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

You can get there...

public transportation, like bus/subway
taxi, but it can get expensive
walking, but I'm sure it's too far for that anyway
biking, remember to bring a lock for it
getting a ride from someone else

Do you plan on telling your mom? It could be a good thing; but I can understand if you need to take your time telling her. It's not easy.

Best wishes. Good luck, girl

Hey Kayla!
As Sam suggested, you could use public transport to get there, or biking. Or even ask your friends if they will accompany you, I mean, if they know that you SH...

Maybe it won't be such a bad idea telling your mom. I mean, you'll never know how she will react until you tell her right? But do so, only if you feel comfortable! I hope you get help soon!
Take loads of care!

Hey Kayla,

Your mum could be really supportive if she knew about this. You haven't really got anything to lose from telling your mum and you could actually gain something so surely it is worth it. Perhaps you could sit down with your mum and try to explain things. Or you could even write her a letter explaining things if you thought that was easier. I really think you should tell her Kayla so you can get the support you need and deserve. You shouldn't have to suffer with it all alone. There is help out there if you reach out for it. Stay strong

What I would do is either this
1. Tell your mom! She may be a big big help! Unless your in an abusive situation with her, I would tell her.
2. If u can't find it in u to tell her, call a family member who u love and trust the most and lives close. If they are like my family, they'd go to the ends of the earth to help u!
3. Call ur friends and find a ride. Don't choose someone u just kno in class, start off with your BFF! They'll understand and will want to help!
4. Talk to your school councelor, but be warned, 99.9% chance they will tell ur mom!
5 find a bus or bike to a hospital or walk. Taxis get very expencive!

Hey, well like alot of others have mentioned I am sure your mum would be supportive if she knew. It could also be good for you to let her know to that way you wont have hid it from her. I agree with taking public transport to get there. Talking about the issues is a great start and I am happy that you are willing to take the first step in recovery which is to talk. I am always here if you need someone to chat to.

thanks guys!
my mom actually knows about it, but she doesn't know that i'm still having problems with it.
i feel a lot better though.
i feel like i am able to stop all my problems, i just have to put my mind into it.
thank you so much though for all the answers.
they are highly appreciated.
