RE: Self-Harm
Wow, all of this is reminding me of my first therapist. This is the first post I have actually shed a tear.

I hope your therapist helps you, Sarah.

I'm eagerly awaiting the update; I can't wait to hear how it went...

I don't you you personally...but as someone who can relate very closely to your story I do hope that speaking to someone helps you.

RE: Self-Harm
Seek therapy, a support group (friends, family, etc), and an outlet (reading, drawing, positive music, etc). I went through pretty bad bout of depression, so I can relate to your thoughts/ feelings, but obviously not the cause.

You may or may not need medication, that's
up to ypur therapist, but hppefully you can beat this thing without.

RE: Self-Harm
Yesterday, I went to visit Mrs. Dutch as planned.
She wasn't there, so she had Mr. Thorn fill in for her.
Honestly, with her not even showing up the first day, it frustrated me.
Though I have had male counselors in the past, I didn't feel comfortable talking to one.
I was quiet through most of the conversations, definitely when he had asked me straight-up about my sex life. I had admitted to him that I am extremely terrified of men. I've had past experiences with men that have honestly scarred me. After that conversation of telling him about my first "sex" experience, I broke down.
I told him just about everything (everything that wouldn't require legal actions).
I felt a bit better until I got home.

I checked my Facebook only to hear that rumors are being spread about me, around the school.
That I had sex with "Bob".
They continued on to tell me that a lot of people are convinced that I'm a whore and others have been telling my boyfriend that I've been cheating.
I cut.
A lot.
I didn't know what else to do.

But I go back to see the counselor next Thursday..
and this time I'm requesting Mr. Thorn.

RE: Self-Harm
Good.
Heart

I could say more, but I just think it's good that you've made this commitment. You are strong for being able to accept help ... most especially from someone who may have been the very thing to scare you off - a male.

Stay with it Sarah, you've got a ways to go, but you have proved yourself strong. Thumbsup

RE: Self-Harm
I will admit, accepting the help from a male was extremely difficult.
I felt like he was either going to hit me or touch me disrespectfully.
Men honestly scare the shit out of me.

But thank you for having hope in me.

The thing is, I don't have a phone. So the people that I do want to talk, that is my only method of communication.

RE: Self-Harm
Proud of you Smile You're working on it. You coulda been scared off but you didn't run. Facing your fears... it's really really hard. You made a good start. Sad to hear you cut again, but overall I think it sounds like you made a positive step. All life is, is one step after another. Step 2 could be to learn that the opinion of assholes is not worth taking notice of. Anyone who thinks you're a slut or whore or whatever - who *cares* about them ? They're just idiots who get their kicks out of being nasty to other people. A *real* worthwhile human being builds others up, they don't tear them down.

On that note, don't forget or get complacent about those abusers. I really hope that sooner or later you'll find courage to tell either the police or your therapist, because they're evil and you're in danger from them. Imma nag you about that Wink
