Finally told someone..huge relief - October 5th 2009, 08:27 PM

OK...so me and my best friend were msning and she was saying how do i feel bad, when i said i hate life. And I said that I sometimes want to die etc. And she agreed. And then asked how I deal with that, and i told her some stuff but not about SH. And then she said that she dealt with it badly, and I have known for agesss that she SHes but didn't ahve the courage to bring it out. Then there was some awkwardness where we both knew what the other was thinking and then she said 'f**K it, I'm just going to come out and say it, I self harm'. And i told her about me. It feels so weird that someone finally knows....BUt I'm glad And I'm glad she finally told me

Frankie that is so great that you managed to tell your friend. She is probably going through something similar so you both should be able to relate to each other and hopefully support each other through it. It is a huge weight off you when you tell someone and I just wanted to tell you how brave you were to do it. It can't have been easy but you did it! And now you don't have to keep it all to yourself. Stay strong

That's so great! Congrats to both of you for working up the courage to talk about it.
Haha, it's kind of funny because I said that exact same thing to one of my friends this weekend.
Isn't it just a huge weight off your shoulders though? Now you can talk to someone and have a support network and all that good stuff. My only warning would be to just be careful that you don't trigger each other if you're talking about it.
Take care. <3
With hope,
Hannah

The only time i've ever told anyone about my cutting (besides Counseller & Mother) was when i was drunk :/ haha

But the other week i told 2 of my best friends about my depression, and it felt so much better.


So come on, get higher, loosen my lips;

Hey Frankie.

Firstly, congratulations to you both on finding the courage to tell eachother, you should be really proud of yourself.

I think it's good to have someone who is going through the same experience there for you to talk too and hopefully now that you have both told eachother then you'll be able to try and support eachother when you're both experiencing tough times.

Take care!

Yay, Frankie! Congrats on finally telling someone. I know it's hard but it's a good thing you both told eachother. Hopefully, it'll help both of you get through it, knowing the other has the same problem.

Frankie,

I think it is great that you and your friend were both able to tell each other this. I know that confiding something like this to someone can be a really hard thing. You should be really really proud of yourself.

I think it always helps to have someone know what we are struggling with and the fact that she can actually relate to what is going on can be a lot more help.

Maybe the two of you could work on getting into counseling? I know that it would be hard but if you have a friend supporting/encouraging you and your friend has someone supporting her it might make it a little more easier.

Best of luck,

Jenna

I accidentally slipped up about SH in my journal at school and my teacher told the school councilor who in turn told my mom, I'm glad someone knows, but now she is extra careful about what she says now.

Frankie, awesome job at telling your friend about your SH. I remember a long time ago when I finally told someone about it. I didn't make me feel better at first, but it helped so much to have someone that I could talk to and get support from. I ended up getting help within 6 months and got sent to the mental hospital and I am so glad that I got the help. I am slowly getting better so that I dont have to SH anymore. I am so proud of you for having the courage to tell someone!
