I was on the phone with my mom today and I just suddenly had a NEED to tell her the truth. As I had already suspected, she knew. And I said to her, "Look, I know you already know this, but I have to tell you something. I'm a self injurer." She just plainly said, "Yeah, I know", then got all bitchy with me. She's like "You've been pulling this shit since middle school and to tell you the truth, I'm fucking sick of it." I didn't say anything for a minute and then I said, "look, you can feel any way you want to about it, but I am telling you this because I want you to know that (my therapist) knows the truth and I AM getting help." She didn't even care about the fact that I'm getting help for it!! She just wanted to talk about the last time I did it and lied to everyone about and pick and pick at me until I was in tears!! I knew that she wouldn't really care, but I was hoping for SOMETHING, like maybe a "well at least your getting help" or even "its about time you were honest", but I got NOTHING. Has anyone else shared with their parents that they are an SI and get a reaction like this?? Now I'm terrified to talk about it with anyone. I was going to tell my best guy friend about it today, but I stopped myself. On the one hand, I'm glad that I didn't tell him, but on the other hand I don't want him to believe the lies anymore. I don't know what to do!!! HELP!
