I just told my mom that I cut. It felt so weird. It is so difficult to explain to someone why we do this. She needed answers to questions that I was not prepared to answer. The one thing I did do well during the conversation was explain that my cutting does not make me suicidal. I also laid down some guidelines about how I expected her to treat me and I made it clear that it is not her responcibility to solve this problem for me. She was very upset but it ended well. I have to tell my dad tomorrow though. That may be a different story all together. I am so afraid that he will overreact and try to have me hospitalized or something. He always wants to fix everything. I think I just need to make it clear to him that this is NOT his problem to fix and that there is no easy answer to this. Have any of you told your family? Any suggestions?
