Hey there,

It's always hard to tell someone close to you that you used to SH but it think it's great that you are going to confide in someone. I would suggest sitting them down and don't blurt it all out at once as that might overwhelm them a bit. Explain to them how things have been hard for you and it caused you to do some not so great things to yourself and explain about the cutting etc. It may be awkward and they may react badly at first but they will come around, and it will be great to get some support off someone.
Feel free to PM me if you ever want/need to talk,
Take care,

When I first met my gf, I told her one side of me.. The next day I told her I needed to tell her there was another side to me.. And I didn't blurt it all out, I just told her calmly and slowly and explained everything thoroughly, it helped she is a nurse, and well she told me, she knew some of it, and she was grateful that I was able to trust her and open up to her and that she accepted me for who I was.
