how do i tell my friend..?? - July 20th 2009, 03:48 PM

this week im having a sleepover with my friend of 10 years. i did one of those email help advice things? [idk what to call it..] and i decided that i should talk to someone about it. its making me anxious...i mean its not everyday you tell one of your best friends that youre having a problem; that youve attempted purging a few times, that yes, you have cut yourself, and that you have a growing addiction to pain killers; just for that 5 minute buzz. its gonna be hard to tell someone face to face, but i know she'll support me trying to stop before it gets worse, so its worth it. i just need to know if theres any way... like ANY way that could make this confession easier for me.


** its hard to say i'd rather be awake when i'm asleep **

honestly, i dont think there is, your just going to have to be brave and come out with it. i know it sounds hard and near impossible, but if shes a true friend, shell support you through this difficult time.
maybe you could explain how youve been feeling lately and then say youve been cutting and taking pills. im not altogether sure as ive never done it. but if you remember that the sooner you say it, the sooner you can get better.
stay strong and be brave hun <3
let me know if theres anything i can do, my PM box is always open.

I agree with Hannah here; there's not really a way to make this confession easier, but i realise it's something you have to do and so will your friend and hopefully she will take it as well as she possibly can and be there to support you. No one likes to hear that someone they love is going through a difficult time but i can bet she will stick by you and offer her support straight away - she seems to be like a very good friend as 10 years is quite a lengthy time to remain friends with someone.
I'm sure once you have got this off of your chest you will feel somewhat relieved and hopefully you can start working towards sorting these problems out.

good luck hun <3

& it's just like she's in another world.
