Maybe telling my therapist tomorrow - March 2nd 2011, 04:42 AM

I'm not sure how I should tell her. I'm supposed to be there for anxiety. So I dunno what to say about this or when. Plus I'm really nervous so I'm not sure if I can do it. I know I should. I just don't know how

It's good that your wanting to tell them! Try
Maybe having a list written down beforehand of all the things you wish to discuss? Or even write a letter to her about the selfharm and give it to her?

Hey Blair.

I think telling your therapist would be a wonderful idea. It's great you want to reach out for help, and this is a perfect way to do it.

Just because you're there for one thing doesn't mean you can't talk about other things. I went to therapy for my self harm, and ended up talking about my sexuality!

You may find that during the session your therapist will ask you about self harm; whether you do it or have ever wanted to, for example. Or they may ask you if there's anything you want to talk about, which would be a good opportunity. Like Grace above me said, writing a letter could be a good way to do it as well, if you're worried you won't be able to say it out loud.

Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

throw yourself into the unknown
with pace & a fury defiant.
