okay i have such a hard time telling a therapist about my SI. i find that i usually just dont because i just cant. so with my new one, i just told him right away. just said it out. not to bluntly, i said it because it came up that i just got in trouble and cutting was part of it. he totally ignored it, like i didnt want him to freak or say stupid shit or anything, but he disregarded that i even said it. it was like he thought that i just cut for attention and thats all i wanted. it was hard for me to say it and i knew that if i didnt say it right away i never would. SI is a big part of my life right now. i thought he should know. now he just thinks its all for attention. i hate that. i hide that shit i dont want attention to it. i just want help. what is a good way to tell? also why the hell does everyone assume that the only reason ppl cut is for attention? im so pissed.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
