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.
I am crying over the song, We are the world and every song really. What's wrong with me.
I feel I need to talk to my doctor that I like wine. Because I'm thinking my doctor will know my points of my issues, which are depression, anxiety, self harm and alcohol dependence because of my psychologist. Do I say, don't want to hide it. I think my GP and psychologist will communicate as I have a mental health plan.
I am very sorry to hear that you’re going through so much at the moment, I am also very proud of you for reaching out and seeking advice. It takes a lot of courage to do so.
I would definitely talk to your GP about S/H and what you are going through at the moment. GP’s are very helpful and are there to help support you through whatever it is you need. Even though you will discuss this with your psychologist, I think it would be also beneficial to mention to your GP about all that has been going on for you and what has been happening in terms of SH. She may offer further options for help and offer you guidance & coping mechanisms to help you when you are feeling like you want to SH.
Your best friend sounds amazing too! She sounds like she will always be there for you if you need a chat, sometimes it is helpful to talk to people you trust about what is going on for you. Sometimes it is good to have a good vent and let things off your chest. 🙂
We are all here for you, all the best for your GP appointment 🙂
I just feel horrible. My best friend promised I wouldn't, and I did tonight S/H. I feel terrible.
I will talk to my doctor. Do I mention alcohol or not?
Yes mt best friend is amazing. She has her own stuff going on, yet there for me. I feel terrible for worrying her.
Thanks so much for the support too.
Well done I am so proud of you.
The people at Beyond Blue are angels. So wonderful and I am glad you felt the support and care but that you called. I could hear how terrified you were to do that.
I hope this gives you some comfort too to be able to use the support services when you feel so overwhelmed.
You do have a very dear friend and maybe a little change of thinking here and instead of thinking you don’t want to call or text so as not to worry her.. how about letting her be the friend she is and letting her be there for you to love and care for you.. after all that is what you would do for her. Let her xxx
Much love and hugs today xx
