Got sent to counselor today :( - February 22nd 2011, 10:52 PM

So today I didn't dress out in pe, my teacher calls me over and asks me why. I said because I didn't feel like it, he was like do you not feel well? I told him no. Then he started telling me that I need to get myself straightened out, and that I could always talk to him etc. Then he was like " go either to the nurse or the counselor it's your choice" well I chose the counselor, because my mom would kill me I went home sick. So I went and we talked about why my teacher sent me there. I told the counselor ( he already knows about my cutting) that I was depressed cuz I had a long weekend and had been cutting again. He said that he wants to talk to my mom. He also said that he wouldn't tell me to stop cutting, I was almost speechless! He also said he is going to start checking up on me more in Other words today sucked!!!

Feel free to PM or VM me

Sh free since 7/10/16

It may seem like it sucks now but it may not be a bad thing. Your counselor really wants to help you and having someone there to talk to might be good for you. I'm sorry you had a bad day though and I hope things get better for you!

Choosing the counselor was a good decision!
I know it might seem like it's bad thing that he wants to talk to your mom, but it'll work out okay. It sounds like he's pretty good since he told you he isn't going to tell you to stop. Remember that your mom cares about you and will only want what she thinks is best. Use the support to help you get better and eventually stop cutting.

The counselor only wants to talk to your mother because he's concerned that you won't stop cutting. He's just resorting to another strategy. I know it's daunting to have your mom know about this, but I bet you could make him keep it a secret still if you just showed some willingness to get better.

Sometimes a depressive episode can be eradicated by just deciding that you want to feel sad anymore.

Yeah totally know how you feel .. all that got out of my own mouth like two weeks ago.

I was totally scared at the idea of having mum know about everything but there was no need to worry, the counseller had talked to mum and she was calm with me.

You don't need to worry the counseller only wants the best for you xx
