I think you really should let her make an appointment. Believe me you feel real better after seeing someone, even just to talk. If things are getting worse its definitely best you get help before it gets any worse instead of after.

I found myself that the best way to start these things is to try to start off with a very short sentence that sort of explains things and work from there. Its ok to waffle a lot, it helps you along. Just concentrate on getting it all out, and once you get started it gets a lot easier. If your doctor's any good anyway he'll be able to help you along with leading questions anyway.

Just make sure that the goal is that you tell him and he knows, you don't have to worry about anything else.

I know this is difficult, but this could be your way to recovery. Your doctor is not going to judge you, they just want to help you. You have to want to help yourself. Clearly your mom is worried about you and she just wants you to be OK. You don’t have to tell the doctor a lot, just start with little things, it will get easier over time.

Not unless he thinks your fathers posing a massive risk to your well-being, and even then social services work on the basis of "doing whats best for the child" so you daon't have anything to worry about.

You may not feel capable of doing it now but now's as good a time as any and you are able to do it. Think how it will feel when all this is over. Don't keep putting it off when you have the chance to change things now.

Firstly you can't loose your college place, that's discrimination. And I can't see why sh can pose a threat to children, the laws usually block those with actual criminal comvictions. I will check it for you of course But remember yourself is the most important thing.

No, a safety pin isn't going to cause a threat (I do voluntary work and we carry multi-blade penknives)

You couldn't do it because you didn't think you could do it, and now you can only do it if you really want to and believe you can do it. Many of us have been there before you and worked ourselves out of it because we believed in ourselves, and you have to do the same. You can only go so far as you want to, and now you have to really want to cure this to do it. You have a way out, now take it!

Did you get an appointment today?

It will be worth it to admit that you want some help. your mum obviously feels you need some and so seems to be doing her best to make things better - in the long run.

You can do this. i know the feeling - like you just don't think you could make yourself say the words.. but trust me, take a deep breath and tell the doctor about what you are going through.

planning what you want to say helps i think, just going in there on a blank can just leave u wondering what u could start with. Like i think i saw my doctor and just said something like "im here because i tried took too many tablets..." lol kind of a weird way to put it but its was as blunt as i could manage. and its better to come out with the basic problem.

I could be telling you all this in vain if you had your appointment today. if you did, how did it go?
PM me if you wanna talk.

Best wishes - Tracy x
