Would you and how to tell your GP you self harm?
Recently I have been self harming. Im not sure if I'm allowed to say how though. Should I tell my doctor? And if I do , how do I tell her? She is quite approachable and lovely. The idea of telling her that I S/H, fills me with so much anxiety! How do I blurt that out? What would she do? I already am booked for 6 psychologist appointments and I have written it down as one of my reasons for attending. Any advice please?
Thanks very much.
Yes I did manage real smiles today with customers. Was hard as I admit that I did S/h again at work in a break. A5 times I feel empty and I hope it makes me feel better. I know it's wrong and I should stop. Something is terribly wrong in my head.
The more I think about it, I feel I need to tell my GP. It's not normal.
My friend knows and I have told her today I did it. She's very worried about me me and now keeps asking if I'm ok.
keep us posted how you go.
Thanks heaps. I was talking to my best friend just now and I realise I have a problem. She wants me to promise her no matter if early hours of morning, that I will sms or ring her. But I can't. She was saying don't do it. I'm crying as I write this. I haven't tonight but I want to.
I don't want to worry my best friend, but she's already worried. 😭
