Bracelets and sweatbands could help.
But the very best way is to not have any scars to hide at all. I know you can get better honey, and feel better. There are better coping methods than cutting.
Look through those, dear? You can get through this.
All my love and support,
Love, that wont happen, and you need to know that and she does too. Mental illness isn’t abuse. It can happen to your child even if you are the best parent in the world.
The worst that could happen is they decide you are too much of a risk to yourself or others, and you have to stay at a hospital for a while. But people will be able to visit you after a while, and it wont be for forever.
We don’t live in those times anymore.
But you do need help. and you can get it. If she won’t get you the help you need, then please talk to a doctor or school counselour, love. You can feel better.
Love, I know this was five months ago, and I feel so very badly that we were unable to get to it sooner, however, I really hope you are still here with us, and that you are feeling better about life and you have found a reason to hold on and live.
Life is worth living. You just have to make it through, a minute at a time, an hour at a time, a day at a time. Because there is the sky, trees, flowers, a future, to live for.
If you, or anyone else is feeling this way, please go to the hospital. It can get better. Some mental hospitals are okay, some are not the best. But if you fight to get better, well, the opportunities can be endless.
There is a lot of what ifs. You can’t know her reaction, and its likely to be a lot different from what you expect. But one way to help with the ‘what ifs’ and how to deal with them is to a) tell yourself the worst case scenario. The very worst one you can come up with. b) Tell yourself the very best case scenario. and c) tell yourself what the most likely thing to happen is.
You need to tell her honey. No matter how hard, and no matter what you think her reaction will be. You need to tell her for you, because you need to tell someone. You don’t need to hold this all inside.
Hearing voices can be caused by extreme fatigue and exhaustion, mental illness, or some physical illnesses.
How often has this been occurring my love? Can you distinguish the voices from reality?
I would suggest going in to your doctor and telling them about the voices you have been hearing, especially if you cant distinguish these voices from reality.
Yes, I did say that it can be signs of other things. But it could, depending on the severity be a sign of DID. I can’t determine how severe their dissociation I was just suggesting different possibilities. They need to go into the doctor or to a therapist.
Be back on tomorrow after my class!
