Red face guess what i said todayyy - February 2nd 2009, 07:18 PM

to torment life like a cat and a ball of yarn, after class i asked my human teacher if i could ask her a private question. i said my friend was "like cutting herself" and who would find out if the "head" of school found out, like, would they tell her teachers and our friends?

she said that they're under confidentiality, who is it (i forget like the order of our conversation), i said i couldn't tell her, she talked about how the guidence ocuncelor (gave me the name of mine) would tell parents and an outside doctor and i should so i could help her.

is it terribly obvious that i am "my friend"? i truley wanted to know if the teachers were informed, but i actually talked to her. and i lied. and...i love talkinggg ! note: i've talked about this plenty before, but not face-to-face for awhile. gosh. do you think that she sounds interested in talking about this more? i dont mean like talking talking, i mean do you think she'll report what i said or ask me quietly like if i've decided to go to the guidence councelor and tell her my friend is doing that? ahhhhhh. :P

well she might suspect that the friend is in fact you, however she can't just assume that, seeing as you've told her its a friend. i doubt she will tell anyone now, seeing as you didn't name the friend [obviously]. i think it would be a good idea if you spoke to this teacher more about the self harm issues, its helpful to talk to someone, especially a teacher who can put you in contact with other people who can help you. if you do decide to talk to this teacher more, be prepared that eventually your parents will be informed and you will have to deal with them. it sounds terrifying at the moment, however it gets easier, i promise. at first they'll probably be very shocked, even hurt that they didn't know about it, but at the end of the day they want what is best for you. if you find it easier talking to your teacher using the fact that you're finding out for a friend, then i don't see anything wrong with that, because at least your still getting help and support, eh?

i think most schools would in fact inform parents if they discovered a student was self harming.. not just if they thought you were suicidal. if not, then the teacher would definitely inform your head of year or the guidance counsellor at your school, who intern would probably be in contact with your parents. either way, you have to be prepared for the fact that your parents will eventually find out.. and its not a bad thing that they do find out, because then they can help you.

well i'm glad you're happy that you did bring it up with the teacher, if she does mention it again then you can go from there i guess.. i don't quite see what your asking in your last post? are you looking for advice on how you should talk to her when/if she does bring up this topic with you?
